Just a heads up… July & August are event season in the PNW.
The July 4 Summer Spectacular & the August Sheep & Duck trial both have flyers posted. http://ascofwa.org/Events. There is conf & obedience too. Rally is at Summer Spectacular.
Molly & I (or at least me) will be at the Ninety Farms NW Classic Arlington USBCHA event August 10th & 11th. It’s Open & Nursery levels only. Which usually means there are buckets of top handlers to watch.
Vashon Island Classic USBCHA coming up if you are ok with getting on a boat. Sept 13 – 15 It’s v spectator friendly with bleachers & such. The coffee shop on the way to the trial site is fantastic. A must stop over.
AHBA has Large flock this weekend – one of my favorite AHBA classes. It’s at Fido’s and there will bw a raffle basket to benefit Lori & Joe. The Packleader trial (Gig Harbor ish) is July 19 – 21 – This is a big event BTW. The Spokane event is July 20-21. The GSD people also have an HCT/JHD sheep only in Roy, WA.
Still no word on Spokane’s Labor Day ASCA Event – though rumor is that they are taking a much needed break.
I think that’s it so far. There is more in Oregon, Idaho, Montana (they have great ASCA events coming up), but i’m just unloading my brain. I’ll do a big events post for the 3rd & 4th Quarters here in a few days. 🙂
