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!

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
