Since we decided to do a worker raffle only and just use club money to buy gift cards for prizes, the raffle organization was a snap. This left me free to pick up the job of chief ring steward. I must say, between set-up, tear down, keeping three dogs walked and watered, doing 20 runs, socializing the puppy and keeping volunteers rounded up I barely had time to enjoy myself! Next trial I should have a lighter (slightly) work load. But I did tell our president and trial chair I could only commit to one trial next year. I don't want to be stuck giving up another three day weekend working my butt off for other to people to have fun while I'm wishing i was sleeping in or at a nosework trial!
Anyway, the dogs did pretty well. Lyric ended up 4/8 with an especially killer tunnelers run. And Legend went 6/12 but failed to get a TNG Q which means we will be one, if not two short for champs. Fortunately you can typically get in without all the points.
Polly was a big hit, but didn't get adopted. She is doing better and better all the time. She met lots of new friends and had a really great time.
