MacDonalds June trial results

Written by Sue MacDonald.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all your help and support of our MacDonald's Ewesful Acres SDT! The folks in the Pacific Northwest are just awesome! I am so greatfull that I live here! You are all so encouraging and helpful to others, help make things go smoothly and put up with my 'odd' courses! With the flags flying, we feel the trial was a great success! We had teams from not only Washington and Oregon, but also So. California, Colorado, British Columbia and Alberta. Our judge was from Wales, so some of the world was represented.

I didn't hear any complaints so I think most all of you also had some fun!

Now was that a potluck dinner or what???!!! The food was awesome thanks to Ron and Dorothy Whiteman. You guys are the greatest!!! With the help of both their sons, daughter in law and first grandbaby, they did a fantastic job. They also cooked breakfast, lunch each day and then that unbelievable dinner... and none of them even run a dog!!! Thanks you guys. You are true friends and we owe ya!

The raffle table was full of great and wonderful things, thanks to all of you guys, but most of all to Jeanne and Suzanne! Did they come up with some great things or what??? Border Collie Rescue will be getting some much needed help from that.

And then, how do I put this... thank you to all of you for the wonderful book. Thank you to Diane for thinking of it and for all of you signing it. It will be treasured forever. We enjoy hosting trials for you and it is wonderful to know that it is appreciated. Thank you all VERY much. It was a real surprise!!!

Bob Hickman gave the speech for the book. George and Sue in the middle with the book. Me on the side because I was commanded by Mr. Hickman. (added by Diane, photo by Suzanne Anaya from Calif)

We had a few special awards to give out, one of which was a quilt made by Kathy Rivers. This quilt was presented to the top open handler/dog team that competed in all three trials (Key Pen., Whidbey Island and Ewesful Acres). They had to run in both days at all three and the team with the most points would get the quilt. It went to Diane Pagel and Tess. Congratulations to you two, and Tess enjoy your retirement! Also the WASH club presented a gift to Ruedi Birendheide for his help and support of the web site for the club. Linda DeJong was presented a gift for her diligent work at score keeping and helping me keep things straight with run orders, etc. Thanks Linda, we can't do this without you. Thanks to Barb Davenport for the use of her Barb sheep. Our sheep were VERY happy yours came to play for one day!

And a VERY big thank you to Norm and Kathy Rivers. Norm was everywhere doing everything and Kathy did a fair amount of scribing, but also did make most all of our awards. They were beautiful!

I asked Cyril if he saw any dogs that he would like to take home, and of course he did! Several actually. We have some very nice dogs in this country, and a good many of them are right here in the Northwest.

So I'm sure you all would like to know how things went....
We ran 56 open teams on Saturday June 27th there were 110 points possible.
The course was a straight fetch with a Maltese cross at the end of the fetch, the second half of the cross was the start of the drive. Full drive and then a pen with a solid back wall on it. We used Barb sheep that are not familiar to this field or these types of dogs. They were consistent and worked very well.
