June marked the
beginning of a new season to collect those ASCA
points. Again the weather was great. It was even on the
cold side on saturday until the sun came out. Everything went
very smooth. Everyone had fun with the "NQ" raffles on Saturday
and Sunday. Erika Maurer was our trial secretary
while Susan Laursen did the trial chair job. This was a
pretty quiet trial - no ATCHes or other awards. Even so, Judge
Pamela Bryant-Meeks found some things to celebrate, giving us an ATCH
bar twirling show.

Thanks to trial chair, Donna
Highstreet and trial secretary, Dave Connet for a great trial.
The weather was outstanding and the
atmosphere was very pleasant. We had a little scare on Saturday
when our judge, Jason Meeks, was stranded in Texas because of
weather. Dave Grubel agreed to fill in until Jason arrived,
sacrificing the first two runs for his dogs. In spite of
that handicap, his Aussie, Tahoe, won the Veteran High in
The trial was almost
full. Saturday ran until almost
dark. We had our "NQ" raffle on Sunday which was a big
hit. We had three ATCH winners, all of them on a gamble.
Right away on Saturday Diana Land and Whoopie nailed the gamble and got
that ATCH. Stacey Fleischer and Cooper gave us a little more
suspense by getting the difficult weave/teeter discrimination gamble
Sunday morning. The very next pair, Kristi Cetrulo and Cinder
did the same. It was pretty exciting.
High in trial was pretty exciting,
as well. Open and Elite were
decided in the last class with Star winning on a tie-breaker.
Veteran Tahoe had an amazing performance doing the best overall even
though she was excluded from the first two runs when Dave was judge.
This was the first trial
in the Silver Buckle Series.
