Hope everyone made it home safely.  The weather turned out to be a little nicer then forecast especially on Sat.  Sun started out a little cool but also turned into a super nice day.  Went from heat to air conditioning in one day.  The food was excellent.  Nanci brought her chicken chili which was a perfect choice for the weekend weather.  There was plenty of food thanks to everyone.  We had a long day on Sat.  We didn't get out of there until almost 7.  Sun went a little faster and were on the road by 4:30 pm.
 
First I want to thank KC from 4 Dog Night for lending us Izzi as our open height dog.  She does such a great job for a green dog.  Congratulations to Flyers for placing 1st and Throttle placed 3rd.  Out of 42 heats Flyers won all but 5 heats.  Throttle had a few problems but did well for themselves on Sun.  Congratulations to Stephanie and Tara earning their FM!  A special thank you to Stephanie who gave up one of her races so that Roxy could make her debut.  Congratulations to Nanci and Roxy earning their FD and FDX. Roxy did really well for her first full race.  She had to pass into Bizzi, and quickly was dragging Nanci into the racing lane when she figured out that as soon as he ran by she could go too.  Also it was a great weekend for Cathy and Flye.  Flye broke that 4.0 barrier by running a 3.984 her second heat of the first race on Sat.  Unfortunately because of the speed the dogs were running we broke out with a 20.893, so we had to put the brakes on but Flye followed in the 3rd heat with a 3.997 and then a 3.992.   The rest of the weekend the slowest Flye ran was a 4.4 and that was in the last race last heat of the tournament.  It was very exciting to see Flye turn on the way she did.  All and all it was a very good weekend.  I think we all had a great time, wish all of you could have been there.
