Thank you from 4 Paws Rule
« on: September 08, 2014, 04:26:16 PM »
Thank you to everyone at the 4 Paws Rule trial in Otis Orchards, Washington, this past week-end, September 6-7, 2014!

Our judge, Arlene Courtney, was very helpful and friendly, and kept us all on track. We were so glad to see her back in the Inland Northwest. Secretary Dorothy Bowers handled a lot of day-of-trial entries with her usual efficiency, and ran her dogs too. We had lots of great food, including 4 Paws Food Manager Karen Egbert's famous hash-browns, and many yummy contributions from competitors. Gordon Jewett grilled hamburgers (beef grown on site) for our potluck party late Saturday afternoon.

Judge Arlene told us we were very fortunate in our volunteers. She is right! Whenever we called for a scribe, timer, or whatever, someone appeared, and promptly. We would like to say a special thank-you to agility pals who helped us set up, and to everyone who helped during the trial and during our clean-up on Sunday. You made our trial run well.

Special achievements noted on our Brag Board, including 3 NATCHes:

Brekka Belgian Tervuren and April Weber: NATCH 5 and VNATCH 4.
Giggs Border Collie and Bethanie Ballard: Superior Open TNG title.
Harrie Tervuren and April Weber: VNATCH 4.
Jack Rat Terrier and Patti Barrett: Open Regular title.
Kysen Aussie and Sherri Rewoldt: Novice Weavers title.
Missy Cocker Spaniel and Tabitha Bauer: Outstanding Open Chances title.
Magic Aussie and Dorothy Bowers: 1st 1/2 Elite Regular Q.
Raider Border Collie and Terri DeJong: 1st ever Chances Q and Open Jumpers title.
Siofra Sheltie and Linda Thompson: Novice Weavers Title.
Ziva Doberman and Susan White: 1st trial, with 2 Qs on Saturday.

Congratulations to everyone!

Hope to see you at our 2015 trials.
