Chesapeake DockDogs Participants
2007 Ducks Unlimited
Great Green America Fest
Mount Hope Estate & Winery - July 14 - 15, 2007. Another sunny and hot weekend for a great DockDogs event. The setting was beautiful - lot of trees for shade within a large grassy area. And, despite all our worries, close parking with a drop-off area. The only thing we were lacking was a close bathroom.
The club made a great showing this weekend! Sharon Rodgers & Thunder with a new National Personal Best of 22' 6" made it to the Pro Finals and finished in 9th Place with a 21' 1" jump. Brian Rutledge & Mishka also received a new National Personal Best of 20' 10" in the Top Four, was the first seed, and won the Amateur Finals. Also in the Amateur Finals, Terri Kieffer & Scram finished in 5th Place with a 20' 2" and Brandy Fowler & Buddy finished in 12th Place with a 17' 8". Also, this was Jane Harford & Peanuts first National Event and she finished with a National Personal Best of 10' 9"
Buddy and Thunder, with another yellow and black challenge, battled it out again in Cadet EV. Buddy knocked it down at 5' 4", missed the first jump at 5' 6", and decided to pass on the second jump to take it up to 5' 8" where Buddy missed his first try. Thunder grabbed at 5' 8" and tried for a new personal best of 6' to get to Top Gun but missed. They're both looking forward to their next Cadet EV event at Frederick.
During the tear-down there was much excitement when Sharon punctured her hand with a knife and had to rushed to the hospital by Tim. After 3 hours and 3 stitches, she was good to go and Carly got her home safely. Luckily, it's not her throwing hand. Thanks to everyone who helped with Daisy Lou (Angie Jones) and Thunder (Brandy Fowler) and everyone else who made sure Carly got everything packed up. Congratulations to everyone who competed and we hope to see you at the next event. For more information click on Club Stats or Complete Event Results.
