Racing started out great with Aviators posting a 15.61 with almost 20 feet of passing and a not great start! We knew the dogs had more to give, but the best we could do that race was a 15.5. Feist bit her tongue (BAD!) in the second heat, so were we happy to get the win and get her resting for the next race.
On My Go vs MassChaos were up next and OMG put it all together posting a 15.471, which was a new club and regional record. We knew we would have our work cut out for us in Regular 1 this year! The day continued with many tight races, but we clinched 1st in Regular 1 and 3rd in a very tight Open 1.
Sunday, our Aviators dogs came out busting and in our first race we hit a new club PB of 15.476! We were so proud of our dogs, not so much Daniel, as he had a 5+ foot pass! UGH! Oh, well, it was not meant to be on this day.
Aviators went undefeated and took 1st again in Regular 1 and First Class had a great day taking 3rd once again in Open 1. We were very proud of all of our dogs who raced amazing in the heat on Sunday. Aviators was still posting 15.7’s near the end of the day with lots of room on passing.
HUGE thank you to Natalie for boxloading for us and our PFT kids: Kyle, Liz & Braxton for boxloading, ball shagging & running dogs. You guys are the best!
We had one title this weekend with Nika earning her FMX! We also received Rev’s Iron Dog Award. This is given to dogs that have completed 10 years of consecutive racing. Never easy to receive after you have lost that dog, but it was a special moment for sure. We thought we were going to hit another HUGE milestone this weekend for one of our pups, but I guess that will have to wait until Bridgewater in August – stay tuned!
Once again, we would like to congratulate OMG on their new record. It’s insane to think how close our PB’s are, only separated by 0.005 seconds! Racing in Bridgewater should be lots of fun!
Next up is Maple Leap’s Tournament, the long weekend in August in Bridgewater. We can’t wait to hit the lanes and see what will happen at that tournament!
Until then – Cheers!!
