Club flags from the National

The artist in me loved looking at all the club flags hung along the fence line as you drove in to the National site for Breed, Agility and Obedience. I took some pictures to commemorate the Golden Only events that Sophie and I have attended over the years.

So we'll start the journey down memory lane with the GRCA Flag.
No need to recap that event, I'm sure you all remember how stellar our performances were!

Here is the Gunpowder River GRC of MD flag. Sophie and I went to this show in April 2008. It was our first entry in Open A Obedience and we took first place. We also took first place in Rally Advanced B. Great indoor show site - long drive south!

Potomac Valley GRC hosts great indoor agility trials in MD. Sophie and I went down for one day in June of 2008 and took first place in Novice Standard. We also went to their trial in August 2008 - which was a 'golden only' trial and took a first and a second in Novice Standard and a first in Novice Jumpers. This is where we finished our NA. Love their show site!

Yankee was the host of the first day of agility trials at the 2008 National... and for that matter, the host of the National!

We took the dreadful drive to Long Island in February of 2008 for a bumper leg in Novice Obedience. Sophie had a great performance but got weird on the stays. NQ, but really great working class!

Garden State GRC holds an annual specialty in October. Last year (2007) we entered that show in Rally Novice A. Sophie took first place and got a great score for never having practiced Rally before. We also got a really nice plaque to commemorate the experience.

At the Trenton Kennel Club show in May of 2008, NJ Pine Barrens GRC offered prizes for the highest scoring Golden Retrievers in Obedience and Rally Classes. Sophie took the prize for Highest Scoring Golden Retriever in Rally Excellent B.
