Also known as the second annual non-tsunami trial! Named so because of the tsunami threatening our island 2 years ago during the 2nd annual Sweetheart NADAC Trial. Boy was the judge excited – he was staying at a hotel on Alii Dr. Then we had to change from an oceanfront restaurant to a higher ground restaurant for our Judge’s Dinner that evening,Â but that’s another blog.
This year, our trial had a lot of interesting things going on…as the club grows, it only gets better and better.Â Two varieties of Jamba Juice were offered to help raise money for our clubâ€”thank you Jamba Juice and Lani Shackelton!
Thanks to Jamba Juice for participating in our fund raising and to Lani for making it happen
Another fund-raiser is our Raffle Table hosted by Anne Pitts with daughters Savannah and Amber
Participates enjoy a weekend competing and bonding with their dogs
Dog agility is becoming one of the fastest growing sports on the mainland and here in Hawai’i also
This is our spectator’s tent. More and more people are coming to see what dog agility is all about. We also have people from the east side of the island participating in our trial. Their club is OIDA, which stands for Orchid Isle Dog Agility.
Toni Barnhart, owner/handler, with Oscar from OIDAâ€”thanks for joining us, Toni, and to all the others that come quite a distance to enjoy the trial
Lani Shackelton, owner/handler, with Hapa
Imagine running this course with your dog in 17.19 seconds. Yes, that’s right, Hapa completed this obstacle course in 17.19 seconds…seconds.
Junior handlers are those who are under 18 years of age and our club really encourages their participation
