Tracking

We regret that we are unable to offer Tracking at the 2024 National. Most privately owned fields that are used for Tracking Tests Oct - Mar in our area of NC will be at the beginning of the planting season, newly planted,and fertilized, and not available. We have coordinated with the ECSCA Tracking Chair and he concurs that we have exhausted all potential resources. Those who track are aware of the challenges in finding the large amount of usable acreage required. We want to thank several judges, an NC Tracking Club, and numerous other ECSCA members who worked with us to try to find a solution. (2024 National Performance Committee)
