Rivanna Schutzhund & Police Club Trial!

Rivanna Schutzhund & Police Club held our 2014 Winter Trial January 18-19 with SV Judge Ferdinand Diermayr.  The weather cooperated, with conditions perfect for the dogs, and the (bundled up) spectators.

Eleven teams started, and all deserve praise for their hard work and sportsmanship.  We finished with three new IPO titles, a new FH 1, and four BHs.  Our visiting team from Tidewater brought with them a large contingent who considerably added to the gemütlichkeit with their enthusiastic support for all the dogs and handlers.

And, as always, thanks to everyone who helped out: Helper, tracklayer, & major organizer Armin, tracklayer Max, Secretary Anita, the obedience group, and of course, everyone who contributed food for our once again memorable lunches and judges dinner.
Trial Results...

If all you photographers will send me a selection of your favorites, I promise to post them quickly.  Please crop them and size them for the web.  Preferably no more than 400-600 pixels on the larger dimension, and no more than 40-50K bytes.  Color and contrast corrected would be nice, too.
