The Dragsters compete in NAFA Tournament



Clarksville Canine Sports Associations Flyball Team the Droolin Dragsters traveled to Talladega, AL to compete in a NAFA Flyball Tournament on September 8th & 9th.  We ran as an open team, with Lee Short and her dog Brigitte running with the team as our height dog.  The team had a great weekend.  We took a whole second off of our seed time running three heats over the weekend that were less than 22 seconds, and came in Third in our division on both days.  It was Madison’s first attempt at running with the team and she showed us again what green dogs are capable of – crossing over.  She got a little more than she bargained for and she ended up being chased by a german shepherd.

For two members, Steve Varner and Kara McHugh,newly home from Afghanistan, it was their first flyball tournament since returning stateside.

Lee Short and her Welsh Corgi, Brigitte, made a great addition to the team, and we are grateful for their help. The team cut about 1 ½ seconds off our seed time which made for a great weekend
