“The Show must go on” was the motto for our show’s weekend tournaments and titling classes. Preparing months in advance as most clubs for their trials this was going to be our normal February dog agility show.
Team events were split between Friday and Saturday. Titling Classes for all levels were all three days. Grand Prix/PGP, Steeplechase/Perf. Speed Jumping Round 1 was Saturday. Round 2 of the Steeplechase/Perf. Speed Jumping along with the Master Challenge Biathlon was on Sunday; but the show committee had to make last minute decisions to run alternating rings with one judge and to add the Steeplechase Round 2 to Saturday’s classes because bad weather was forecasted for Sunday.
Our Chief Course Builder Chris Meyers and our awesome BRAT members stepped up building the fun challenging courses from Master Judge Kim Donnell, so they were ready to go as soon as the other class ended.
With changes that was made trying to squeeze in extra runs you could still see the friendly good sportsmen’s ship between the competitors. All the handlers were strategizing each course for their best possible runs.
BRAT strives to make our trials run smoothly and to give everyone a fun weekend with their dogs.
