A Spooktacular time was had at BARK's USDAA trial on Halloween weekend in Manchester, NH. Thank you to judge Paul Stolzenburg for a fun weekend and fun courses. Thanks for the lesson in your timing system. Makes perfect sense to me!
Thanks to my usual cronies with helping set up: Levi and Amanda Dionne, Sue Paterson and Mich Powers. You guys are the best Wack Pack I could ever hope for.
Thank you to BARK's amazing Team: Valori Duff, Seth Dunn, Kathy Clement and Sandi Bixler. Courses were built and scores were posted so fast. I am blessed to have you. Also a huge thank you to the most amazing volunteers. Whenever we needed some help in the ring, someone always stepped in.
A very special thanks to Donna Kelliher, Kathy Clement, Seth and Val who stayed to the bitter end and helped pick things up and put them down.
