MyAgilityDog Trial - Bakersfield, CA
« on: December 16, 2013, 10:45:28 PM »
Thank YOU and Congratulations to all the teams that came out and helped make the MyAgilityDog trial so much fun this past weekend!  We had an awesome group of exhibitors/judges/testers/workers/volunteers.  (I wanted to call our workers the "A Team", but they said I had to find a better name  ;) )

Our Judge, Craig Coonrad, was wonderful!  Some challenging courses (at least for me), but boy were the runs beautiful to watch when a team was in sync!  So many just perfectly handled, smooth and fast.  I also really enjoyed having a lot of new and novice teams.  So many successes. Not always a Q, but what heart this group has!  Always encouraging each other and enjoying the time spent with their teammates.

Very nice turn out for the Beginners Agility as well.  Thanks to Karen Birdsong and Murrelet Halterman for coordinating the activities and doing the testing!!
