Yay Jeff!!  Nice work promoting the sport and the bond training provides with our dogs. Love that positive press!!

I've answered the survey and I hope the numbers in WY and surrounding states remain low enough that we are able to have champs this year.  I am OK with not crating in the crating building, requiring masks, lots of sanitizer, hand washing stations, etc. If we have champs this year it will be my first time attending and likely my oldest dog's last since she's 11 and she'll already miss other goals I had hoped for thanks to Covid. So, selfishly I really hope we are able to move forward.  If things are shut down again and it's canceled because the venue can't host well there's not that much we can do about that.

General Discussion / K9 Corps NADAC trial was a blast!!!!
« Last post by Billie Rosen on June 29, 2020, 05:22:55 PM »
I attended the first K9 Corps NADAC agility trial of the season this past weekend, and it was a super great trial.  A big shout out to Jeff and Cheri Riedl for going above and beyond to ensure that everyone had a great time and stayed really safe.  It was big enough news that 3 of the 4 Green Bay TV stations covered the event.  Here are links to 2 of the 3:

I sure didn't have many Q's to sure for my runs, mostly due to the heat and running my youngster with a toy to keep her motivated and happy.  But I loved the trial for the comraderie and relaxed atmostphere. Their trials are why I come back to Wisconsin every summer!!!!

Yes thanks Ric.  I was trying to figure out how to respond, but you did it well.

In addition if Champs are held it would be great if those coming could be extra diligent about distancing at home a couple of weeks prior.

We are lucky to be retired and are staying away from restaurants and large social gathering places.  We are socializing with small groups, outside, where distancing is easy. 

I would like to come to Champs if things aren't really bad at that time.

I agree 100% Ric!

"I feel the need to say that if 2020 Champs is held then any dog that competes should be afforded the same respect and honor as any other year.  Every year there are teams that are not able to make it for one reason or another.  Every year the degree of competition, and ultimately each champion, is partly determined by outside circumstances.  This year, there may be a number of teams that make the choice not to attend.  I ask that everyone be cautious of any sentiments or language that implies that a victory in 2020 would somehow be "less" or in some way not equal to a victory in any other year.  That type of thinking strikes me as extremely inconsiderate and disrespectful.  The last couple years, NADAC Champs has been huge.  This year, if it is held, it will most likely be smaller than the last couple years.  That should not should diminish the achievements of any dogs that do attend."

My only recommendation is to find a dog walk with upside down 'L' style legs as opposed to 'A' Style legs.

The 'A' Style legs make it INCREDIBLY difficult to fit a tunnel under the ramp the way they're supposed to fit.

He seems good but don't trust his estimates on delivery :-P He promised me 4-6 weeks and we are coming up on 10 or 11 at this point.  But hopefully it's coming next week :)

Mike Press is good and is located in Athens, which is near Tyler, so Arkansas should be within range.  He also came back and repaired a dog walk that was tossed by the wind.
