The event photographer already has most of the competitors and phases up and videos coming soon. Very cool job considering the rain was awful for a good part of the weekend! It was great seeing everyone this weekend and looking forward to next year :)

I hope everyone has made it home without any problems and you all beat the bad weather that is stretching across the center of the country. I got home to below zero temps and it did't make it above zero all day. Makes the cold and rain in Florida seem downright balmy. Tracking was tough, and most of the competitors had wet weather on the obedience and protection field. Regardless, there were some very nice performances.

We did manage to have a great time, with a good deal of socializing along with the spirited competition. The host hotel had good food, a bar and music and was in a very convenient location. The dinner Saturday was a ton of fun - imagine a bunch of so-called adults with a pinata and plastic baseball bat.

I'd like to thank the judges, Willie Pope and Milos Kovac for their consistent judging and good critiques. Thanks also to our helpers and tracklayers. I don't want to forget to mention anyone, so it is probably best to issue an overall heartfelt thanks to everyone who worked so hard to put on the event, including the donors, members of the Spirit Working Dog Club, and other volunteers.

And I'd also like to thank all the members of the AWMA for their continued support of our organization. We may be small, but we are mighty. We are fortunate to have a dedicated group of breeders, trainers, and competitors and a cadre of phenomenal dogs.

Bravo Zulu to the Spirit Working Dog Club. I traveled from the great white north to see the best Malinois in the country and the event to showcase those dogs was Awesome. The host Hotel was top notch, good food, and entertainment in a safe part of town. The Draw was great, The helper work was safe, the Judging was Championship level and very consistent. I thought Milos Kovac maybe one of the best at his craft. I think more IPO championship needs this kind of judging....One of the biggest compliants I hear about SchH is that it is water down....Not this Championship!!!

I enjoyed meeting a lot of folks and seeing those I already am aquianted with. That was worth every penny I spent to come down. Thanks for throwing a great show Spirit!

There seems to be missing scores on the Results page of the Championship website. I'll trust that Ivan and Rock won :) but would love to see the remaining scores.

From memory...

David Green had a 94 Obedience, 95 Protection
Carrie Silva I think had a 90 obedience not sure protection
Don't remember Michael Lorraine, John Soares or Shawn Thompson scores.

John Soares was Helpers Choice.
Ivan was High Obedience.
Michael Morgan was High Protection.
Sean Rivera was High Tracking.

Glad to see the Championship results page has been updated with complete scores. I was 'a might' confused when looking at individual totals. Carrie and Ajax score is mis-totaled at 277 instead of 275. At first, second and third glace she was second place...until I totaled scores.

Big congrats to all!

The one in Plant City right?...I was there. The general concensus I got milling about in the crowd was that most concured with my observations. I am not sure what you thought was out of whack?...but I thought Milos explained very well where he took the points from. I also thought he looked at similar things on every dog. I also think getting a V under him was not an easy task. As it should be.

I so wish I could have been in FL. Now I have missed two Natls and I hope to be able to compete in 2010. Going through all the pictures was fantastic. Kudos to all of you who braved the pouring rain and perservered! Congrats to all of you!

My own little brag is that Helen Tyler with Axle Von Koewitz got 97 in protection and won the IPO I competition. Check out his pictures--he did the Courage test in a lake it looks like! Axle is my boy's son, and my puppy's brother, so rock on, Axle!!! I wanted to be there to cheer all of you on, and was at least there in spirit!
