Event Report: BARK-NH's July Trial

Great courses, great competitors, great fun! By Lo Baker

What a fun weekend we had at BARK's USDAA trial July 18-20! Thank you to judge Janet Gauntt for amazing courses on which competitors could test their skills. Not only is Janet skillful at designing the best nested courses, her music playlist was greatly appreciated also!

Thanks to the best crew ever: Val Duff, Kathy Clement, Sandi Bixler, Chris Frado, Bruce Thibodeau, Sue Paterson, and Amanda Dionne. Thank you for making BARK's reputation for hosting fun trials a reality.
