As with all USDAA trials, entries are unlimited, as long as the entry is received by the closing date of March 13, 2019.

Wrapup for the Jan 2019 Tournament MADness

This year’s all tournament trial was a bit smaller than usual, but there were plenty of great runs to be had on judge Tammy Domico’s courses.   Both team tournaments had some real drama going as placements shifted around dramatically from class to class.  Final winners were:

Dog Agility Masters tournament:  “Mutt Crackers” with Portia/Laurene Galgano, Ringo Phire/Lynn Sigman, and Mouse/Tracey Luggiero

Performance Versatility Pairs tournament: “Wild Cards” with Jack/Sandy Morris, and Duke/Brad Kimmel.

Full results and course diagrams can be found below.
