2005 Super Singles Fun Day

October 22, 2005
Cheltenham, MD

We were determined to have fun at our Super Singles Fun Day on Saturday despite the rainy weather! We had a drenching downpour for the morning setup, but by the time we got started running marks, the rain had subsided. Although the day was heavily clouded with occassional mist — it wasn’t bad all in all. Thanks to everyone who came out and participated, pitched-in to work, and made it a great event!! Special thanks to our judges Al Jenkins and Tony Hunt for doing a great job judging the event!! Chris and I would also like to thank Judy Gladson for procuring birds (and Bob Hux for providing them) and both Judy and John Bulger for lending equipment as well. And we greatly appreciated all the work and effort Richard Streett and Deb Brady put into providing us with hot coffee in the morning, and a wonderful BBQ meal with all the trimmings. The day was a true testiment to our community working together to make a fun and successful day! It was wonderful watching dogs and handlers display their talents, and great fun watching the puppies run out to their marks — some discovering very early what this game is all about! To watch them run out, look at the bird or bumper, and instinctively pick it up and run back is not only a wonder to see, but an affirmation of the working ability in our breed. Congratulations to all the participants, and kudos to the following dogs and handlers who displayed their skills and earned placements and judges award of merits (JAMs) for the day: (breed indicated after names)
