Our first Barn Hunt Test was a success! 22 dogs, and 61 runs (Instinct/Novice/Open classes).
Special thanks to Mary Tamer for offering her farm. It was like Martha Stewart does Barn Hunt - very fun decorations and prizes right down to the little acorns (Hershey kiss, cookie acorn top with a chocolate chip on top). J
Also thank you to Sharon Jonas for donating her time to judge our event. You did a great job! Thank you to MASCUSA for providing Insurance for the event.
Folks had a great time, on an absolutely beautiful Fall day, AND we raised over $400 for Cenmas. We feel a bit closer to being ready to host a Barnhunt at our 2015 Nationals, but might want to do a Trial in the Spring fine tune everything. Competitors were WONDERFUL, and helped out with leash running, timing, inside rat wrangler, outside rat wrangler, scribe, and scoring. Barnhunt requires a lot of volunteers to run it, and we were so grateful that we had enough to make it run quickly and smoothly.
Looking forward to more events in the future. Rat! Rat!
EUKANUBA DEC. 12, 13, & 14
Are you going to Eukanuba this year? If so we need your help with our MEET THE BREED booth.
We need help with designing, implementing, setting up, hosting (with dogs) and taking down the booth when we're finished.
If we do not have enough volunteers MASCUSA won't be hosting a booth. We have had a great booth for the last two years and it would be wonderful to continue the tradition, especially since we will be going into full recognition.
Even of you are not planning on showing but live near the Orlando area we would appreciate your participation AND, as a plus we have a lot of fun!
Please email me at: email@example.com and let me know
1) if you are showing AND 2) if you can help.
Thanks in advance to all our great members,
liaison to the events committee

I think that the Working Aussie Source is one of the best locations on the net to find herding trials and clinics!
