WOW Tournament 07/08 May 2016

TimeFlyZ On A Roll!

On 7th and 8th May, TimeFlyZ travelled to Ryton, Coventry to take part in WOW Flyball Team’s indoor tournament. The sun was shining and the temperature soared over the weekend – so the ice-cream van was very welcome! 

We had two intermediate teams running on the Saturday, which gave some of our more inexperienced dogs some valuable time in a competition environment. For Bella, Mollie, Cleo, Neo, Whisky, and Jumangi, this was their debut in the ring! All the dogs coped brilliantly with the distracting environment and we were immensely proud of how they performed and focused on their job. As well as the dogs, it was also Scott and Marian’s first experience of handling their dogs at a tournament and the first time we have competed with our two newest human recruits, Lisa and Fiona! 

Sunday was the turn of our open team, TimeFlyZ, who were seeded 5th in Division 3. We welcomed Dali into the team for the first time, giving us some flexibility with a five dog team. Despite the baking heat, the dogs gave it their all and ran their paws off, pushing the team up the seedings list again with a fastest time of 17.76 seconds. There was some fantastically close racing with other teams; nonetheless, we managed to win each and every race to see us through to being division winners! 

A well organised competition at a great venue, with fun team mates & awesome dogs, made it a fantastic weekend for us all.
