Title: 2013 Championships Special Awards
Post by: Sharon Nelson on July 25, 2013, 03:15:21 PM
Hi, group.
   It is that time of year again to start up our Special Awards list for 2013.   For those new to this, each year individuals sponsor a special award at the champs to honor or in memory of our canines or for a special person.  The cost is $25 per award and the winners take home a commemorative jump bar with the award name on the bar!  These were so beautiful last year and it was so great to take home a bar for winning the award, plus knowing that the award being offered meant so much to the one sponsoring it.

   We will be starting up our 2013 Special Awards list now and let us know if you have an award you wish to sponsor.  Some types of awards are like "Highest Scoring Australian Shepherd, In memory of Fluffy".

    The awards must be able to be "quantified" ie.... it must come from scores earned...... it is very tough to give out an award such as "The Aussie with the most white on them"...... the winning results must come from the scores earned at the championships.  All scores for these awards are tallied from the first six rounds of Regular, unless otherwise specified.  Sometimes we get awards such as "Fastest dog in Round 6".... or "Highest cumulative Weavers scores from Pre-trial runs".... and those are okay also.

     Good luck to everyone!!

Sharon

Looking over the list brought a combination of smiles and tears, as so many of the wonderful dogs I met when the Boyz and I started our agility careers have since crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  Would that they could live forever!

Please let me know how much to send for the Oldest Qualifying Dog massage.  Which actually is in memory of NATCH Dillon and in honor of VersNATCH Bravo.  Bravo says "there will be no "in memory" of me yet. Although I'm almost 14-1/2 and am battling kidney failure and rear-end degeneration, my mind is still bright and I am feeling great!"

Maybe next year for the Beagle.

I'll try a few other odd (agility) breeds if you have any of the following in Champs I'd switch for this year to one of these as highest scoring.

Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier
Basset Hound
Bloodhound
Otter hound
Foxhound

And if none of those, I'll just do highest scoring from New Jersey.

I'll paypal $25 to you.

Highest Scoring Double Digit Golden and Highest Scoring Veteran Golden
(unless there are not enough and then let's do Highest Scoring DD/Vet Golden Retriever and Highest Scoring Golden Retriever in Round 3)
So sorry Deb Pierce, who won my sponsored awards last year, will not be there so I can give her a belated hug and hug on The Boys!

Some people feel strongly one way or the other.  Their choice.  And many others, like you or me, see them as the same thing.  Bottom line, we support all dogs and the ways in which people want them listed!

Yes, the special awards will work the same way.  We need to start the sponsorships earlier, as they are totally awesome to sponsor, to give out and to win!!  They are very special.

We had a very low number of sponsorships this year, about half of normal, so we need to start now to give those 2014 exhibitors something extra to be running for!!

Summer & I would like to thank the sponsors of the following special awards:

Chris Nelson, for the Highest Scoring Male Handler award.
Tom & Pat Moloney-Harmon, for sponsoring the Highest Scoring Sable Sheltie award. Of course, it's awesome to earn an award sponsored by such wonderful friends as you, but it is even more special to earn an award dedicated to Maddie. I hope we honored her with our performance.
Sharon Nelson, for sponsoring the Lucky Award. I am humbled and honored that something in the partnership between Summer & I that reminds you of the special relationship you shared with Lucky. It is also a tremendous privilege to share this award with two other incredible teams, Casey & Cathie Cage and Jet & Deb Baracco.

Thank you!

A very big Roo-Roo to Ed and Dino for sponsoring "Highest Scoring Dog from New Jersey".  We know you were disappointed that there was not a beagle to sponsor this year, but tell Dino that Druid, his former classmate from Beginner agility class so many years ago, earned that award.  We will always look at that special bar and remember a wonderful 2013 Champs as well as both of you.
