The VCNC 2016 Agility Trial held the weekend of February 6 and 7 went off without a hitch. Despite it being Super Bowl weekend the turnout was spectacular, with over 394 runs on Saturday and 364 on Sunday. The entry was large enough that Abba Dogs (manages the event for us) had to add another judge. And the number of Vizslas entered increased this year. Club member participants include Colleen and Bob Meacham, Judy Garland, Peggy Barker and Jessica Vetter. Colleen and Bob’s Havoc earned first place in Novice Standard, first place in Novice Fast preferred, earning his Novice Fast Preferred Title. Congratulations are in definitely order for both Havoc and his handler, Colleen. An event of this type cannot happen without volunteers and we had great club members who pitched in both days. Tim Hensel and Maria Potter co-chaired the event. They planned and managed its smooth running. Nancy Colwell was the board liaison and attended both days as did Colleen and Bob Meacham, Peggy Barker and Jessica Vetter. Jamie Menasco gave up her Sunday to help as well. And we all got to gather around Bob’s really big iPhone to watch the first half of the Super Bowl.
