Judges Brett Edstrom and Bob Saari did a super job.
A big thank you to all the folks who made this such a fun, successful field trial: Sig Degitz who did such a huge amount of work laying out courses, getting folks started in the club, working with Douglas County, arranging food, marshalling... Also club members Paul Cook who worked on the initial course set-ups and clearing and cleaning them and working with the county, John LeClair who was involved with courses and handles the financial business for the club, Brian Lengling-course worker, marshal and photograper; Members Jeff Banitt, Mike Jacobson (in charge of weather), John Edstrom, Neil Boos & Ben McKean who have helped in numerous ways with attending meetings with the county, course prep and helping at the trial. And all the folks who showed up for the work day to help get the grounds ready.
Please help me if I've missed anyone.
Also to the participants who blessed us with such great attitudes. It was a pleasure to see experienced handlers and new faces, also the new, young handlers, Joey and Travis.
