2009 Deep Lake Water Trial Results

We all know it wouldn’t be a water trial in the Pacific Northwest without rain, and this year was no exception! But the Saturday morning drizzle couldn’t put a damper on a wonderful PNWPWDC water trial at Deep Lake. Our thanks go out to Catherine Gadd who was an outstanding judge in every way–very encouraging and always positive and upbeat.

What a wonderful group of participants and volunteers we had this year. Our usual cast of characters was at work (Jim Smith as Equipment Chair, helped by Dave Sliger; Suzanne Malick as Chief Steward; Sandy Overton and Janet Boyd providing hospitality; Suzanne Malick and Julie and Peri Hicks with the fantastic goody bags and the Ducky Derby and Raffle) along with loads of other volunteers that jumped in at every turn. There are far too many to thank here individually, but please know that we appreciate your work–you are invaluable.

The teams were outstanding this year, and I am so proud of our local competitors as well as our friends from Canada–we so enjoy seeing you every year. Catherine commented on the overall quality of the dogs and handlers at this trial, and I can assure you that those that didn’t qualify this year missed by the slimmest of margins. I know you’ll be back next year ready to move up!

Congratulations to all the qualifying teams! Results for the weekend are:
