I had wanted to post last night; however the entire hotel was without internet due to a small FIRE that occurred in the evening. Thankfully, no one was harmed, but last I heard there were still 20 rooms without electricity.
Today many people were participating in Berner University classes thanks to the efforts of Linda Seaver and her amazing team of volunteers.
The volunteers at registration were hard at work getting folks checked in and passing out their welcome bags full of goodies. This years bag is great, a large heavy duty tote bag that zips - I envision this one going to many a dog show in the future.
On to the results...
Today saw PERFECT tracking conditions - the sky was overcast, it was a little breezy and a little drizzly. No worries about the dogs overheating.
Here are the results for the tracking test: CONGRATS to all that earned new titles!

Tomorrow will be the beginning of Conformation with the Puppy Sweepstakes classes and there will be another two draft tests. Also, I will have the herding results to report! My apologies that this is being posted a bit late in the day, we had some technical difficulties with the copier that we are using to produce the newsletter.

Now to end on a fun note, with all of the chariots that are bringing the most precious cargo to Gettysburg, here is a small sampling of some of the vanity plates captured this morning.
Have a great night, and thanks for checking out this years BMDCA National Specialty results blog!
