Pawmetto Pack: Fast and Furriest Flyball Tournament, Feb 10 & 11, 2018

The weather was warmer than in December, so the doors were opened for much of the weekend, making for much better lighting in the lanes. High humidity left the concrete floor wet on Sunday morning (condensation dripped from the steel beams above) - delaying the start of Sunday's racing. Had fun with the Valentine's studio set-up again, thanks to all who stopped by for pictures!

Here are some favorites from the racing pictures:

We had a weather event that threatened the Winter WufFest again - 6 inches of snow (more to the west where several of our club members as well as tournament participants live). Snow in NC means impassable secondary and back roads until everything thaws; people can't drive out of their neighborhoods, which made Friday setup a challenge. This year instead of a cancellation like in 2016, DGF delayed the start of Saturday's racing, and warm temps the rest of the weekend took care of the roads. Whew! Successful WufFest!

UFLI Champs 2017

October 23, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

The weekend following CanAm this year was another International Flyball Championship -UFLI Champs. So instead of driving home after CanAm, I spent a few days with our son in Detroit, then headed for Purina Farms outside of St Louis, MO to photograph UFLI Champs. Liz Werner of Paws in Motion Photography https://pawsinmotionpet.smugmug.com helped out with the 4 rings of racing. Thank you UFLI for your invitation to photograph this tournament!

CanAm 2017

There were 3 of us shooting CanAm this year, Dana Nichols (http://www.altitudedogphotos.com), Adam Short (http://www.ambient-exposure-photography.com), and I. Seven rings this year, and good weather provided the wonderful lighting that I look forward to at the venue at the State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, IN.

Here are some of my favorites from the 3 days of racing!
