Southern California Frisbee Dog Challenge
“Wags for Wishes”

July 6-8 – Del Mar, CA

The DiscDoGG members who headed south to participate in this annual SoCal event had a great time. On Friday, Jason & Jasmine took 1st place in the USDDN Intermediate T&F division followed by Michelle with Harley in 5th and Lou with Tank in 12th place.

In the Novice T&F division Patrick and Sammy couldn’t buy a catch but back on the flyball field he was catching everything in sight, go figure! Cindy & Tank took a turn in the Judges run and placed dead last in 11th. Oh well, someone has to hold up the rear! 🙂

Saturday’s Open division saw Michelle enter with Harley and Jasmine and Patrick with Sammy. There were some fine moments in their routines.

Sunday’s line up of Toss and Fetch had over 100 entrants in the divisions offered. Overall a great event to check out with lots to do and see. Be sure to mark it on your calendars for next year.
