2008 Flowing Lake Water Trial Results

We had another great weekend at Flowing Lake for our annual post-Labor Day water trial September 6-7, 2008. We were so pleased to have Cindy McCullough judging for us on Saturday — her first time for us I think. On Sunday Cindy graciously supervised Suzanne Malick for her second Provisional assignment. Suzanne’s “judgeship” is right around the corner—many well deserved congratulations to her for pursuing her judging certification! Both Cindy and Suzanne were superb, and we’ll undoubtedly be seeing them both judging here in the Northwest again in the near future.

Such beautiful weather (well, forgive us the fog on Sunday morning, please—but it did make for some amazing photographs!) and wonderful teams make for a good weekend. Thanks to all the MANY volunteers who helped out—you know we can’t do it without you. The judges were upbeat and very supportive with the many lower level teams we had this year. Cindy’s post-trial training Q and A session was attended by Junior to Courier level trainers and very well received and much appreciated.

Congratulations to all the qualifiers, and to everyone who had the gumption to enter. We had many that were SOOO close, so we’ll plan to see you all next year!
