Minnesota Mixed Breed Club Labor Day weekend trial -- Thanks
« on: September 04, 2012, 07:38:25 AM »
On behalf of the MMBC I'd like to thank our judge Ben Philibert for a great weekend of agility.  It was great to see Ben again, and his relaxed and fun attitude was greatly appreciated by the club and the exhibitors. 

We were at a new site and all the feedback I got was positive.  Our biggest fear was the fenced in off leash dog park adjacent but overall it wasn't much of a problem (only some very vocal little dogs in the small dog area). 

Everyone's help was very much appreciated.  We had some difficulties with portable power and we appreciated your patience with receiving scores. 

We had one team earn their NATCH on Sunday's Chances course. Congratulations to Jamie and Nala!  Jamie started as a JH, now all growed up, which makes it extra special.

Thanks,

Gina Pizzo

How could I forget???!!!

The Parade of Veterans was as usual outstanding.  There were a few tears shed as we watched some of our favorite teams once again in the spotlight being cheered on by the crowd.

Add my thanks to MMBC and everyone who made the weekend special! The annual Parade was full of smiles and tears as we cheered our good dogs and remembered those who paved the way for them. The longer we know everyone, the more passings we will face, but having this spotlight is a way to honor our canine partners. Maggie's ribbon is on the fridge, and she has reluctantly shared her treats with her roommates--declared delicious by three corgis.

It was fun to see Ben again--it's been a while! And he brought great courses.

LOVED the new site. LOTS of room to take dogs for a walk, great footing, and a great location.

I know that there were issues (none of them could be prevented!) but Gina sent out full results Monday afternoon and all is well. I continue to raise a glass in your honor too, Gina, Jim, Laura, Kelly and Becky. THANK YOU for a most splendid weekend.
