2016 Flowing Lake Water Trial Results

Saturday and Sunday, September 10 and 11, were a fabulous water trial days in the Pacific Northwest! We had beautiful, late summer weather meaning sunshine and no rain, great dogs, and wonderful people.

Special thanks to Suzanne Malick, our judge on Saturday, and to Greg Illchuk, our provisional judge on Sunday. We are happy you could join us!

Thanks to trial chair, Cynthia Kongorski who stepped up to take on the job in late July; trial secretary, Kathleen Jose; chief stewards, Katrina Jackson on Saturday and Sandy Overton on Sunday; equipment wrangler, Gary Masten; hospitality hostess extraordinaire, Kimberley Hart who arranged catering for lunches and our Saturday evening judges’ dinner at the lake; and T-shirts, Suzanne Malick. Special thanks to the many others who helped with set up, trial stewarding, rowing, and so on. Thanks to Suzanne Malick and Sarah Kahn who got trial preparations rolling early on. We send a shout out to Rick and Cindy Thorsen for their delicious breakfast sandwiches and for keeping the coffee pots brewing both days. Our volunteers really do make it all happen!

We had a few qualifiers, many others very close, and new faces as well. PNWPWDC awards a Team Spirit Award each day for a team the judge selects as particularly exemplifying a great working relationship, qualifying or not. Our Saturday Team Spirit Award went to Perry Massner and Aaroo in Apprentice. On Sunday the Team Spirit Award went to Mary Masten and Nemo in Apprentice.
