Nationals Decision

So I have decided that I am not going to Nationals this year. I have been thinking about it a lot and there are a few reasons why it isn't going to happen. The biggest reason is expense.  I am hoping that it will be closer next year! It would be so awesome if I didn't have to fly...

I am super stoked about Regionals though- it will be a lot of fun I am sure. This year, I feel much more confident in myself, and my dog. I have been trying hard to work on my "mental game" as that is what really hurt last year.  I've been doing lots of reading, and have some things to try out at the next few trials.

I am also looking forward to Pixel's debut at a Regional event. Exciting!


Speaking of which they are desperate for volunteers!!! Volunteers are crucial for the event to be run smoothly. It is not hard, and you will have the best seat in the house. They will train you and everything. Click on the poster for more information.

Hey - thanks for the plug about volunteers! Yes, we are pretty desperate - in fact some of us may have to pull our dogs so that we can fill some positions...

Nats is definitely expensive, both the traveling and just the entry! Especially running two dogs, that'd be crazy expensive...and I can't imagine people running three or four dogs at nats.

I'm really looking forward to hearing how little Pixel will do at Regionals this year, I'm sure she'll do GREAT! And Wicca too, of course. I'm sure you'll have lots of success at this years regs, and lots of fun too!

Thanks for giving me all of those ideas on how to improve in Snooker and Gamblers; they help a lot! They give me more of a focused plan to follow :)
