JUDGING SCHEDULE
MARKED CATALOG

Apocalyptic rain and wind, our first big atmospheric river of the season, hurricane wind warning on the coast, entire state under flood watch, holy moly! Actually the TD tracks ran before the worst of the wind, and we had four out of four passes, woo hoo! Then the winds started to kick up. One TDX pass out of three, pretty damn amazing. The other super good news from the test is that everyone’s drive home was safe if somewhat adventurous.

Belgian Waffle ISC Cup 2023

Belgian Waffle Cup

A day of AKC-ISC classes hosted by Redwood Belgian Terv Fanciers! Chair Roger says: “ISC courses are larger, faster, international-style courses that, at the higher levels, push handlers in the US further than they are used to (and don’t get a chance to experience locally).  And the Level 1 versions of these classes (which we will be offering) are very flowy, forward-focused courses that novice handlers and dogs can be successful at.” Also good towards qualifying for world team/EO tryouts.

WHAT: RBTF ISC day, A1/J1, A2/J2, Finals will be A3.
WHEN: Friday August 25 2023, prepended to the SMART USDAA that weekend
WHERE: Manzanita Park, Prunedale CA
JUDGE: Bill Pinder, courses by Hugo Santos

Closes Aug 16.
