Utility Day & BBQ Picture Gallery ~ 6th July 2011

A new discipline, Rally-o was introduced at the Midlands BCC Utility evening on 6th July 2011.

Rally-o is fast becoming popular as a new sport and it was decided to hold a small introduction and competition at our Utility evening to see whether it was going to attract enough interest to maybe adopt into our Utility Certificate. This obviously has to be discussed by the Committee but those who took part were enthusiastic about Rally-O and all enjoyed the session, which was presented by Betty Keepax, a Member of Rugby Dog Training Club who has competed and qualified in Rally-O.

The competition after the initial presentation was well attended and we would like to thank Betty for her time and expertise given during the evening.

The results were as follows:

1st jointly were Sue McCrilley and Womble AND Val Moss and Molly with a score of 187
3rd Janet Garratt and Abbie
4th Pauline Goddard and Sal
5th Amanda Jinks and Olive
6th Melanie Man with Tia
The other competitors were Amanda Jinks with Jumbo, Diane Savage with Parsley, and Melanie Man with Dilla.

We hope Rally-O will become one of our disciplines as anyone can take part and a few minutes of practise can get you started at the basic level. Thanks to everyone who took part.
