See the winners of this cross-country event, and placement winners from the Mid-Atlantic Showcase as well!
On April 8-10, 2011, clubs in the Mid-Atlantic region worked together to offer The Mid-Atlantic Showcase in a three-day event. At the same time, Dog Gone Fun in Texas offered its own version of the trial, culminating with competitors in both locations running head-to-head across many miles, competing for prizes and bragging rights. The combined event was called Spring Festival of Dog Agility®, and the Mid-Atlantic portion was livestreamed and enjoyed by USDAA competitors everywhere (poor internet access at the site kept Dog Gone Fun from live streaming).
The tournament was made up of three classes in an individual triathlon event, where points were accumulated from Team/Performance Versatility Standard and Jumping classes, finishing with a third Standard run each for the Championship and Performance finals. Courses were set identically in both locations and scores were combined to determine the overall winners in each program.
This year, the overall winners all came from the Mid-Atlantic region. Congratulations to all!
The photos below show the overall winners (in the middle) and then the second and third place winners from the Mid-Atlantic Showcase portion of the event.
