PAWS & CUES  held their yearly DAM Team event in Williston, FL this past weekend.   This is one of my favorite outdoor events that is now on my list to attend every year.   Although the temps reached 91 on Sunday the morning were lovely and cool.   As always it was a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere with many familiar faces.

I went into the event scrambling for team members for Scorch and Raya.  I had recently decided to drop her into performance as she would be 10 years of age this year.   So, that meant I needed those 2 Performance DAM team Qs for the Nationals and Scorch just needed one more Q.  Well, my teamies did not disappoint.

Scorch was teamed up with Heather Wall and Twister and a last minute addition of Bonnie McDonald and Faith.  We had an ultra-creative name “Scorch, Twister & Faith”.   We thought long and hard over that one LOLOL.   I love some of these last minute team ups so much so that we ended up placing 1st overall in Championship.  Thanks to Heather and Bonnie for the team up.   Enjoyed it much!!

 

Scorch also won Steeplechase Round 1 and also placed 1st in Steeplechase finals.   Not only that but he placed 1st in every Team class as well.   Way to go Scorchie.

 

Raya also found a team mate at the last minute, Elizabeth Dott and Epic.  A great pair of great oldies (the dogs of course) who did us proud by placing 2nd overall in performance.  Elizabeth and I were not that shabby either LOLOL   Our main competition was Stuart & Patti Mah and they are a hard team to beat as everyone knows.  Thank you Elizabeth and Epic!!   Really enjoyed teaming with you

Raya also won Steeplechase Round 1 and also place 1st in Steeplechase Finals.  She also won Grand Prix and a bye to the regionals.  Way to go Mama Raya.
