We finished our USDAA trial today. Its cold days like this that I'm sooo happy trialing at heated Castle Rock instead of the Snow Meisters' Latigo with no heat. It was 9 degrees when we left the house today and never got warmer than about 19 all day, which is a far cry from the 60 we had just two days ago on Friday.
So today was a most excellent day for Skye and I. We went 4 for 4, with three 2nd places and a 1st place. This was our first trial at the P3 level for all events - the last USDAA trial a couple months ago we did one run at P3 for Snooker, but now we are P3 for everything. We did P3 Standard and managed a nice 2nd place performance. Then we did P3 Pairs, where I ran with my wife & Baby for the first time (her first trial trying out Performance) and we had a blazing run, but a 5pt jumped dogwalk contact pushed us to 2nd place. On our pairs run, there were only 2 other teams in Masters that had faster times than us, by not more than 1 second, and those teams were made up of a couple of the notoriously fast dogs. I'm still not sure how we did it.
Then we ran Snooker, and the 7pt obstacle was a combo of tunnel/jump and seemed verry doable. We got all the 7's and finished the closing for a 1st place and our first Super Q (on just our 2nd try in P3 snooker).
The day ended with P3 Jumpers, and we had a nice run, just 3/10ths out of first, so Yeah Skyeboy, good day!!!
