We stayed to watch the challengers round and the finals both of which were so much fun to watch. No pomeranians make the finals though, maybe we can do something about that someday...
Anyway, I thought I'd share a few of my thoughts on the weekend. The trial site was pretty nice. Except for ring 4. It was dark and dusty and stuffed over in the area with the inside stall crating. It was not even as nice as most of the arenas local trials are held in and certainly didn't give you a "championship" feel. The PA system was terrible and depending on where you were sitting you could only make out about half of what was said if you were lucky. Also, we were relatively unimpressed with Reno as a city. It's not somewhere we would go back to. I thought the courses for rounds 1 and 2 were pretty straightforward but the hybrid round was definitely more challenging. Also the challengers and finals rounds looked like they presented some definite challenges even though I didn't get to run them. The vendors were so-so. There were a few with some good stuff and unique products but I was sort of expecting there to be more. But I guess it's good there not more, since I spent all of my budgeted vendor money on what was there! And as I mentioned before the clean run ribbons could have been nicer.
Well, that's all I can think of right now. We are spending a day or two in Lake Tahoe now, which so far seems super nice and we are looking forward to seeing more of it tomorrow.
