Running on All Cylinders!

We have had so many things going on in April and May!  We have held two of the three agility trials this month, including our very first UKI trial as Shadow Dog Sports.   We recently completed a very successful Show 'n Go.  Coming up, we have the third agility trial, a "C" match the night before our obedience trial, and of course, the obedience trial itself.  Whew!  

I know that you have noticed the recent e-mails asking for help, but I have to add my plea for your assistance.  Some folks have been members for years and support us even when they don't have a dog to train!  Some are brand new and immediately expressed a willingness to assist. Some are there every single time we send out a request for help.  Spending time giving to the club enables you to participate in our growth.  And you connect with like-minded, dog-loving enthusiasts. How cool is that?

Consider volunteering for one or more of these urgent needs:

We need a few more volunteers to assist with tearing down the equipment after the completion of the last agility trial on Monday, May 1.  Robin Hutson thinks 20 folks showing up about 3:00 p.m. on Sunday would have everything completed in an hour.  And of course, we could use some help as ring crews and other jobs during each event.  No experience necessary.  A great job is sitting in a chair watching all the dogs compete and re-setting dropped bars!  Not hard at all! 

We need folks to help provide the lunches for the obedience trial.  We used to do this all the time!  I remember the room at the Fairgrounds filled with everyone's contributions.  It was a feast!  And this year we have returned to that tradition, and we need you to go back to the old habit of cooking your specialties and bringing them in.  We love your cooking, so share, please!

And as you know from earlier e-mails, Caroline Hair needs stewards for the trial.


Please help us out!  E-mail me,  and I will get you connected to the event that fits your schedule. Or you can call me @ 803-553-0671.  

Thanks so much,

    The carting demonstration was fun to watch and I'd be interested in a class.
