Hopefully everyone made it home safely and all dogs are happy and tired. It was a great wekend. Rain on Saturday and cold temperatures on Sunday didn't stop us from having a good time. The dogs always enjoy the cooler weather. Thanks to Nanci for keeping up warm inside and out. The hot food was superb and the warm tents were much appreciated.

Congratulations to our only title winner this weekend: Duffie and Dave on earning your FMX! Congratulations also go to Tammie and Marsha for setting a new personal best time of 5.910, and Misty and Becky on that perfect start. It's also so good to see Sampsyn making progress on the road to recovering his confidence, especially in the building where it all happened. He's coming right along.

For the most part, all the teams ran very well. Our Open Teams, Full Throttle and Experimental Aircraft, took First and Second with some fun and competitive racing against each other as we each vied to eck out that top spot. Regular division Wright Flyers ran smooth and consisitent although they didn't place in the ribbons.

Wright Stuff had a few bumps along the way, but still managed to pull in a fair amount of points. We are all going to have those occassional weekends where the team we're on just can't seem to get it together, and this was the case for this team. Every dog/handler team on Stuff had their share of early passes, bobbles, dropped balls or other issues. It happens. The dogs still had a great time. All we can do is smile because our dogs enjoyed themselves, and look to the next tournament where things will get better.

Special thanks for our wonderful boxloaders: Cam, Cathy, Mike, and Tracy. Tracy did a super job at her boxloading debut! I didn't see her make one mistake.
