successful usdaa sunday

So this was only our second USDAA experience and I loved it. I loved the competitiveness combined with high level of playfulness and affability. The judge was eccentric. His courses were fun and challenging but not evil. Even the Friday Grand Prix, in which I gather only two teams Qed, was not evil... just several snares that if one didn't get ya another did, but nothing people would not have been able to handle had they handled well. 

someone else new to USDAA who i know a little from cpe leaned over and whispered "they're wearing OUTFITS!" and indeed many were.

Highlights for me and Stell? Our RDWs were good like maybe she knows what she's doing. She got all her weave entries, even if she wove slow. We felt like a team every run. Starting her in a stand is working, because thats the way she seems to like to start. It seems she will do agility when its thundering, but not when there are flies in the tunnel.

gamblers:



standard---yay contacts:



jumpers (tired, thunder-freaked dog rallies for last run of weekend)



snooker (no video) SHOULD HAVE BEEN A Q too, but for that fly in the tunnel, first obstacle of the closing---ooooooh Stel


#1  Stella, my funny honest and very game agility partner

#6 my sis who drives 3000 miles east every summer to see us and will be here again soooooon

sometimes it feels like i am finally getting how to do this---sometimes not... but USDAA is a lotta fun

I see you are doing some nostalgic reviewing of your runs... do you think about competing again?
