United States Mondio Ring Association
2016 National Championships
30 April – 1 May 2016
Well the trial is over. All in all I think it was a great success. Today threw us for a loop with some extreme winds but literally everyone pulled together and moved the field from outside to the indoor horse arena. It was incredible to see everyone come together and work together to get the trial going. Thank you!
Jos Helsen, Tommy Verschueren, Francois Massart, Kevin Bain, and John E. Lugo put together an incredibly difficult trial with only 3/13 dogs passing at lvl 1, only 2/5 dogs passing at lvl 2 and 3/13 dogs passing at lvl 3. I can’t thank everyone enough who came and supported our National Championship and stepped out on that field. There are so many people to thank – the trial secretaries, the field help, those that helped with diw, the photographers, Videographers, the vendors, sponsors, everyone who donated to the raffle, those that helped build the items, set the field, the judges secretaries, deputy judge, the help with the raffle and shirts, then all the help tearing down the field. I can’t thank everyone enough. I’m sure I’m missing others but it’s been a long day.
We had a great turn out. Over 200 spectators, over 2300 people logged onto the livestream on Leerburg.com from over 30 countries. That is incredible!
Thank you everyone!
Special thanks to Leerburg for live-streaming the trial.
