Our first tournament was April 14 & 15th, the first tournament of the year and our home tournament! We were really excited to debut our new logo and tournament set-up. Things went well that weekend. Aviators took 2nd both days in Regular 1. First Class ended up 2nd on Saturday but improved to 1st on Sunday in Open 1. Our Green Dogs Rey and Sky, both did awesome on Saturday night at their first Green Dogs! Great job!!! Our dogs earned 2 titles during the weekend. Fitz our awesome little BW earned her 4th title: FDCh-S, in only her second tournament! And our rock steady anchor dog Feist earned her FGDCH, 30,000! Braxton & Corbin were also rpesented with their Jr. Handler pins for 2018. Last but not least, we were very proud to have re-set the Region 10 Regional Record to 15.706! This was the first tournament with the new line-up of Nika, Fitz, Callie & Feist and they were still working things out. WE had a feeling they had more to give…now on to FAME’s tournament!
FAME hosted their tournament May 5 & 6 in Cap Pele. The weekend started out very fun as the team welcomed a new Toller, Rowdy! Rowdy is Rev’s daughter from his last litter, so she is a pretty special girl.
Racing on Saturday started out rough, so when your best time in your first race was a 34.521, you can only go up from there, thankfully we did! On Saturday, Aviators finished 1st in Regular 1, First Class finished 3rd in a very competitive Open 1 and our mixed Vets team finished 2nd. Sunday was exactly the same, except Vets finished 3rd. Thank you to On My Go! for putting a Vets team in with us this weekend and to Krieger from FNF for helping our Open team on Saturday.
HUGE congrats to Robyn & Finnick on Finnick’s amazing debut during this tournament! Finnick earned his FD, FDX & FDCh - the title trifecta! Robyn has worked incredibly hard with Finnick and that hard work paid off! Our rock solid Nitsa also earned her FMX!
Big shout out to our green dogs: Sky & Bond who rocked green dogs on Saturday. These two are improving every week!
Last but not least, we were super stoked to re-set the Regional Record for a second tournament in a row to a 15.552! WOW! We certainly were not expecting that first race on Sunday, but our dogs had other plans!
Up next we head to Debert May 26 & 27th for Paws on Deck’s last tournament. Super sad to hear that this will be Donna & George’s last time hosting.
Until next time,
