The weather was not very cooperative with rain all day Friday and Saturday. Sunday we still had overcast but at least we were a little drier. We had a lot of scratches so we finished about 11 a.m. on Sunday. Had several new people come to the event so that was fun to meet new friends. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves despite the weather and mud.

We had 97 dogs in the event. Although we did end up with 37 scratches. We had breakfast and lunch. And dinner in the clubhouse on Friday and Saturday evening with about 25 people each evening. Many thanks to all who supported the kitchen. This helps with the expenses of the trial. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves despite the weather and mud.
