Saturday runs smooth, as forecasts fall short. Steeplechase and Performance Speed Jumping provide climax to the day.
The looming thunderstorms of Friday proved to reduce themselves to early morning showers, permitting Saturday to get underway much as originally scheduled. The day was filled with titling classes and was concluded with the ever-popular Steeplechase Final Round, following conclusion of activities in other rings. The course proved to be challenging, with its subtleties wreaking havoc with many handlers. Hurdles #16-#18 left many shaking their heads, though commenting that it was an exciting course. While some may contend that assessment, the audience did not. It was seldom predictable which dog would fall victim, while at the same time watching handlers react in different ways, sometimes overhandling and thus presenting their own problems.
Below are the resuls for top winners in the Steeplechase and the Performance Speed Jumping final rounds. In Performance Speed Jumping, the placements were determined on the basis of cumulative scoring, rather than as a standalone round score. For a complete listing of results in these and other classes, log-in to the Subscriber Services area and click on "Results" for the Spring Festival of Dog Agility. Results should be posted by April 29.
