PASA 2017 Obedience and Rally Trials

 PASA had two days of Obedience and Rally at Thorson's Arena in Morgan Hill, CA on November 18/19.  
They were held in conjunction with PASA Agility trials. 

November 18/19 Flier

Highlights of the weekend 

 Our trials last weekend were small, but everyone enjoyed themselves.
The highlight of our Obedience Trial was when day of entry, Rocky the  Golden Retriever owned by Noelene Byers, went High Combined, High Scoring Other Breed, and obtained the points needed to complete his OTCH 1!    We did not have any dogs eligible for the Double High Combined award.   Our Obedience judges were Barbara Arine and Lora Cox (UA/B) for AM and Anne Shope for PM.

The following day's Rally trial was slightly better attended.  The Double High Combined ( dog with the High Combined scores from both AM &
PM trials)  award went to Cherie Gessford & her Aussie, Hattie.  
The all around winner  was Richard Anderson and his Aussies Calvin ( HIT & High Scoring Aussie PM Obedience, HIT High Scoring Aussie Rally AM) and Kate (HIT, High Scoring Aussie PM Rally ).  In Rally, both Calvin & Kate had perfect 200 scores in the AM , and Kate earned another 200 in the PM trial. Calvin’s HIT Obedience score was a whopping 199.5!  Our rally judges were Anne Shope in the AM and Barbara Arine in the PM.

Our judges had a great time.  Anne Shope said she would love to come back again some time,    Barbara Arine is always a favorite. And her husband comes along and lends a hand whenever he can as a ring steward.  Rick Anderson also helped a lot, helping set up the rings both days & tear them down,setting rally courses, all in addition to running 2 dogs in a full slate of agility classes an Obedience & Rally.  I offered a package deal rate for those entering all four trials or those entering High Combined in Obedience or Rally in AM & PM trials. This was to be a popular idea.
