The 2017 Water Trial Was SO Much FUN!

The weekend of August 4-6, 2017 was the PWDCNC Annual Water trials at Shadow Cliffs Regional Recreation Area in Pleasanton, CA. We couldn’t have asked for better weather for our 57 entries trialing under judge extraordinaire, Sarah Kahn. Temperatures had been predicted for triple digits but instead stayed cool in the mornings and warm, without being unbearably hot, by afternoon.

Friday afternoon 7 youngsters tried their hand at Junior level. All had a great time with some really close but not-quite-there performances.  On Saturday Apprentice through Master levels were judged with many impressive performances by the teams.

Following judging was the much anticipated Ducky Derby. Fifty-four rubber ducks were dumped into the lake and 3 lucky dogs were drawn to pick the winning ducks. The fun was followed by a dinner catered by Simply Elegance. A wonderful time was had by all getting a chance to relax and enjoy the delicious meal.

Sunday all levels were tested with many “oh so close” performances. The very last team of the day saved the day from going O-fer.

It was such a pleasure to have Sarah Kahn not just judging, but offering support and suggestions as the weekend progressed. Many of the competitors expressed their appreciation for her spending her weekend with us and helping us work toward more success and fun with our dogs.

We were joined by several new members who came out to see what all the fun was about. Hopefully we’ll see them joining in the fun next year!

We couldn’t have our trial running so smoothly without our expert guidance by Trial Secretary Barb Avila. And as always our equipment team headed up by Carl Craig had everything ship-shape and ready to go Friday then organized and stored back into the trailer Sunday afternoon. Thank you Anne Paterson for putting together the goody bags and so many other tasks for the weekend. Elaine Rasmussen once again arranged for delicious meals delivered to ringside. Linda Kelly did her always fantastic job of providing breakfast and snacks for everyone’s enjoyment. A very special thank you to Don and Barb Niemann for their contribution of a Kong Water Wubba for each team’s goody bag.

Thank you to all of our teams and volunteers for all your hard work making this wonderful weekend happen!
