Aviators (Nitsa, Nika, Callie, Feist and a little help from Maya) raced in Regular 1 and had an awesome weekend, racing some of the best times they have run all season! We had some super tight racing against FNF and MassChaos. The finals each day came down to us vs MassChaos and what a blast! MC took the win on Saturday, so we finished 2nd and on Sunday we took the win and finished 1st.
I am so proud of these dogs and how much they have come together over this season. Our last heat of the day on Sunday we ran a 15.916, which is our best time of the year! We have had to switch a lot of things around this season and it seems like things are finally starting to come together. Huge thank you to Jules for calling passes for us all weekend, we truly appreciate it!!! We are very excited to see what these 4 dogs can do in Cap Pele in September.
Red Eye (Maya, Pongo, Raine, Brooke & Rev) also had a great weekend in Open 2. They're record matched Aviators, as they took 2nd on Saturday and 1st on Sunday. Unfortunately Rev was not feeling the best end of Sunday, so Pongo & Nika had to pick up his races for him. Total team effort as usual!
One title for us this weekend, as Brooke earned her FGDCH 40,000 title! Good job girlie!!
Lastly, I want to say how incredibly proud I am that my team is once again Region 10 Regular Champions for 2016-2017! We had a lot of challenges this year with our new line-up, but everyone was determined to make it work. I have never met a more dedicated group of people in my life. We expect a lot out of each other. We work hard. We are dedicated to our team goals. It is not easy to find people like that, that put the team first and individual goals second. I am super lucky to have such amazing teammates.
Up next is Cap Pele in September. I am really excited to see how our teams fair at that tournament. We know that Regular 1 racing will be fast and competitive and we can’t wait!
