We had judge Patty Leroy down from Calgary to join the fun. She brought some tough courses that bit a lot of us, but boy were they fun to run. She also brought good humor and good company... if loving Patty is wrong, we don't want to be right! ;)
There were several PZ teams making their big debuts at this trial:
Lisa and Bailey
Joan and Lucy
Megan and Mani
Our annual Fall Raffle was bigger and better than it has ever been! Thanks to the help of all of PAWZAZZ and our trial participants, both donating items and buying up those tickets, we were able to raise enough money to buy two new sets of 22" weave poles. Without the tireless efforts of Pat Moloney-Harmon and a select group of raffle worker bees, this event would never happen.
It was a great trial with great runs and great friends to share it with. And many milestones achieved. We send out huge congratulations to the following teams:
Phyllis and Zipper - Novice Triple Superior and Novice Superior Versatility!
Diane and Roxie - Novice Versatility, Superior Novice Jumpers, Superior Novice Weavers, Outstanding Novice Tunnelers!
Nicole and Mojo - Open Hoopers Title!
Lisa and Jasper - Novice Hoopers Title!
Mary and Roscoe - Outstanding Open Jumpers Title!
Beth and Flagg - Superior Novice Chances Title!
Leanne and Sydney - Novice Hoopers Title!
Leanne and Cody - Elite Tunnelers Title!
Leslie and Caly - Superior Elite Tunnelers Title, Superior Elite Touch-n-Go Title!
And lets not forget those teams that perservered on some TOUGH courses all weekend and received our High in Trial Awards:
Elite - Jean Wilkins and Kopper (10/12)
Open - Nicolette Eaton (substitute handling for Patty) and Kori (7/12)
Novice - Val Embry and Chloe (10/12)
Way to go to some awesome teams, both experienced and still new. We'll see you all again in January!
Split is so special she gets a cake, but we're not allowed to say why... :) (photo courtesy of Terry Wright)
