2007 Cabela's Summer Tent Sale
Wheeling WV

Wheeling, WV - August 3-6, 2007.  Four teams from the Chesapeake Club drove to Wheeling WV for another National Event.  Congratulations to all four teams - everyone made either the Amateur or Professional Finals at this event.  Friday and Saturday was miserable - hot and humid - with temperatures in the high 90's with a big thunderstorm on Friday with cloud to ground lightning that stopped the jumping during the first wave for a short time.  Sunday was a lot cooler, in the low 70's, but it rained all day.

Sharon Rodgers & Thunder qualified for the Pro Finals with a 21' jump and finished in 12th place with a 17' 2" jump.  Terri Kieffer & Scram broke into the top four in the Amateur Division and finished in 2nd Place with a 17' 4" jump.  Carly Keane & Daisy Lou finished in 9th Place with a 15' 6" jump, and James Linde & Tasha finished in 11th Place with a 14' 11" jump.

Sharon & Thunder had a 1st Place finish in Cadet EV with a 5' 4" grab.  Thunder attempted to leap up to Top Guns and get new Personal Best of 6' but missed.  He hopes to try again at the Frederick MD Event.

Daisy Lou made a FIFTH run for freedom at an event after escaping from Tim Kline while practicing on the dock.  It was a short run - she tried to entice Thunder to join her in the escape, but Sharon caught her.  Thunder also made his name known when he decided to eat the hamburger buns but only damaged two. 
Congratulations to everyone who competed and we hope to see you all at the next event.  For more information click on Club Stats or Complete Results.
