General Discussion / Re: Western Regionals - Thanks For Everything!!!
« Last post by DeafSheltieMom on October 12, 2017, 11:58:20 AM »
I'm finally somewhat recovered from the long month I had that culminated in returning home from a wonderful time at Western Regionals... I was ready to write my thanks as well, but Kyle beat me to it, and she said it much better than I could have.   

FromTesla and I, thank you ALL!   We had a great time!  I haven't seen Tes so happy running a full weekend in a long time... she loved the footing, the screaming fast courses, and the companionship.   I need to up my handling to manage her re-found speed! 

I hope we will see everyone again soon!  It was a blast!

For Cocoa and I this was our first and most likely only Champs.   Since we qualified last winter/spring, he has been running more and more slowly.  I thought that we might really not fit into Champs even though we were there.   But everyone was so supportive that I had a great time and learned a lot.  We did manage to get some slow and clean runs that felt good.   We also scratched one run when it would have been very late and probably would have been very slow and not felt good for me.   Again, there was no problem doing that.

Just being able to watch all the other folks running was enlightening.

Thank you for such a fantastic and well run event.

I agree wholeheartedly with the accolades of everyone involved in organizing and running Champs!  They went above and beyone to be clear about how things were to work.  They were very visible and available.  The positive attitude that was conveyed did wonders to calm the nerves of this newbie who had been having panic attacks for the month prior to going.
Now that I have done this once, I am anxious to do it again!

  To Sharon, Becky and LeeAnne - I can not thank you enough for offering us this fun event, knowing there were so many of us who would not be able to make the loooong trip (4 days one way for those of us in So Cal) to Ohio. We all are sincerely grateful for all the time, energy, work, thought and care you put into the Regional. Thanks for all those super fast and fun courses - they were AWESOME!!

  To Greg Battaglia and his amazing crew - You all worked your fannies off for this event and did an amazing job!!! Thank you to *all* of you!!

  To Arlene Courtney - Thanks for all of your time judging!!! Not an easy job and we all appreciated you being up there!

  To all of my fellow exhibitors - You *all* came with the most amazing attitude for this event. I can't stop telling everyone who didn't go how wonderful you all were. Supportive to everyone, relaxed, enjoying your dogs, no high level competition stress stuff - you all were just SOOO much fun to hang out with. This was one of THE MOST fun events I have attended in the last few years. Thank you, thank you, thank you for that!!!!!

Once again, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you all.

Thanks Becky! This was a really FUN Team event. Simple, silly and no dogs involved. Much better than involving dogs who already have enough stress, etc., on their plates. Little did we know we either had these "skills" or were severely lacking in them....sigh....  ;)
