Saturday was nice but Sunday was HOT and you all bore up with aplomb.
Once again, we hit all our marks. The judges waited for nothing and the handlers all complimented the Chapter on the show we put on.
We have a very solid membership core now, the best that I’ve seen in my five years with the Chapter. What’s also gratifying is the number of you who have moved past Natural Ability and are squaring up to the challenge of the Utility Test. The Chapter is here for you – we want to be sure you are learn the skills you need to train the dog you want. I hope that volunteering for the tests is giving you perspective on training that will pay dividends in the future.
Look for information soon on a chapter shoot. Please plan to attend our Christmas potluck and annual meeting in December to help us finalize our plans for 2017. And be ready to get a head start on your training in February in a covered county horse arena to be named later.
