“Matt is one of my best friends so it was a tough match to play. I managed to get going from 5-2 down and
in the end it was a dramatic finish. I have been pretty unlucky this
season so far so hopefully this is the sign of things turning round.”
Neil came from 5-2 down to beat Matthew Selt 6-5 and reach the
last 16 of the International Championship in Daqing. 31/10/2017
Here’s our Standard and Jumpers run from the trial this past weekend.
I’d say Standard was our messiest run of the day (zoomies, plus an off course fault). Gatsby also did an early run by during Jumpers.
Our best run of the day was our Snooker run, which I have yet to upload.
Gatsby was considerably slower during our Jumpers run, most likely due to the heat and because he was tired (agility trial days are loooong days). Still super duper pleased with how well he ran though.
With this particular qualifying score in Jumpers, we are now in Level 4.
Oh, and one more thing: the judge for that weekend is a corgi owner. She LOVED Gatsby. She said to me, “so, uh, don’t be surprised if your corgi goes missing at the end of the day because I’m totally taking him home with me.” And during one of our runs, after she said “Good luck!” (she says this to everyone running) she said, “UNLEASH THAT CORGI!” And during one other run, she said, “GO CORGI POWER!” I love her. She’s judging again in July so I’m definitely going to enter us in that one.
