They ran very respectably however, posting a number of runs under 21 seconds.

On Sunday, they ensured their placement by racing undefeated all day to take first place.

  • There is a group of club members that are planning to attend the NADAC agility trial held by the Calgary Canine Centre on April 26, 2003.

  • January, 2003 - We went to the Calgary Canine Centre tournament with one team. We ran very well and consistent all weekend but simply had bad luck at the wrong time. We placed 2nd in division 3 on Saturday, losing only twice the entire day including one loss when our box malfunctioned. On Sunday, we again ran very well and were seeded first going into the final race. Due to the format however, a loss here dropped us down to fourth place. On the bright side, the teams in this division were all very closely seeded which led to exciting racing all weekend. A HUGE thanks to John Hendriks of the Northern Power Paws for boxloading for us over both days and for lending us his box while we worked out the problems with ours!
