October 16/17, 2010 WWWA ASFA Results

We all held our collective breath the week before the trial, knowing that October's weather can be dismal, but Saturday morning dawned with clear, brilliant, blue skies and a definite nip of frost in the air! The temps were below freezing at the start of trial hours but we all knew that meant no rain later in the day so we did not complain. We were lucky to enjoy spectacular fall weather both days of the trial. We had a last minute judge change, when one of our published judges called in sick the day before the trial, but luckily we were able to find a substitute judge on short order. Provisional judge Avery McLeod drove home a day early from California, where he was attending the Italian Greyhound national, and was able to judge for us on Sunday. Thank you Avery for saving the day and we were glad the assignment was allowed to count towards his provisional requirements.

We had healthy entries in Whippets, with a full stake in open on Saturday, and Silken Windhounds both days. In fact on Sunday, with a full stake, the Silken entry was the biggest in the trial. We had a smattering of entries in the other breeds, for a total trial entry of 39 on Saturday and 35 on Sunday.

Thanks to so many - club members and non-club members alike - who pitched in wherever needed. We couldn't do it without you. Congrats to all the winners!
