Smokey Mountain U-Fli Qualifer Flyball Tournament

The Dragsters headed back to Chattanooga to compete in the Smokey Mountain U-Fli Qualifer March 10th and 11th. The Qualifier was on Saturday and The Dragsters pulled first in Division 9 – we are going to the Nationals in August! Rebecca came up from Georgia to help with the box loading and running dogs and brought a friend with her. We kept them busy as well as new team members Edie and Joe Blackmon. They were back this weekend to run Mandy in singles. Mandy ran preflight and although she didn’t complete all her runs we have a new team member to help us in August. We had a great weekend culminating with Houston pulling in enough points that he is the #1 rated English Cocker in U-Fli!! Way to go Houston!

NAFA Crazy Train 2012 Flyball Tournament

The Droolin Dragsters traveled to Chattanooga, TN to compete in the Crazy Train 2012 NAFA flyball tournament February 25th and 26th. For two members, Steve Varner and Kara McHugh,newly home from Afghanistan, it was their first flyball tournament since returning stateside. It was great to have them safely back and competing with the team again. We were running open class and had a guest dog running with us to complete the team. 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

Division 9 U-Fli National Champions

The Droolin Dragsters traveled to Gray Summit, Mo to compete in the U-Fli National Championships on November, 12th and 13th, 2011. We came home with First Place in division nine! This is the fifth year in a row that the Dragsters have won our division in the Nationals.

It was a great weekend altogether. On Friday, Max competed in singles. He placed third in the tournament and the exciting news was he had a 4.3 second run. Fantastic run Max!

We had a visitor both Saturday and Sunday, our team member Sheila Shelley came out to visit. We lost Sheila and her racing members several years ago when her job moved her to St Louis. She is now working for Purina and came out wearing team colors. Although she recently lost both Trinity and Bailey she has two new family members and they all came out to cheer on the team.
