Well our IFCS 2010 adventure began last weekend. We had a team practice locally and then the team came back to our place for dinner and a photo shoot. Our team managers Tracy Sklenar and her assistant Nina Durante have done a super job of organizing us all. From the group vet check on Friday before we left Canada to our low-stress 5 hour adventure as we waited for our dogs to clear quarantine here in the UK.
We all arrived safe and sound and have taken over a quiet little resort in a small village out side of Bristol England.
I had someone approach me with a great idea I thought I would share. With only left one week left for you to purchase the “Building the Team Fundraiser ebook” it seemed like good timing. What she wanted to do was purchase 5 ebooks to give to 5 Junior Handlers – – kids that could use the jumping, training and handling education found in the ebook but possibly not in a position to cough up the twenty bucks to buy one of their own.
So what about any of you? Great idea, get the email addresses of one, two or ten deserving Junior Handlers and buy them an ebook. It supports our Fundraiser and it helps out a raising agility star, maybe contribute to some young person being able to compete on the world stage for themselves one day.
I will leave you with some pics from our trip so far. For a more thorough update on our trip go to our team blog www.aacwt.com
