Thank you so much Wollongong Wonder Woofs for hosting the 2018 Flyball Nationals at Kiama, With Redlands Flyball traveling down with all three of our Flyball teams.

The haul of trophies

And what a fantastic weekend it turned out to be for everyone at Redlands Flyball Racing Club! With weather conditions ranging from blazing heat to VERY cold with 40 knot winds thrown in just to make it interesting, our three teams did themselves proud against all the other clubs.

Turn’n’Burn in division 9 taking out 3rd place with great passing during both days.Hit’n’Burn in division 5 with a completely new racing order jelled together as a team and taking out 3rd place.

Burn’n’Bolt came out on top and placed 1st in division 2 with the added bonus of also receiving the special Maggie memorial trophy! What an amazing result!

Molly and her Trophy

Special mention too goes to Molly and Lilian, who came first in the Singles, and also to Jorja and Kelly and Bessie and Mirella, who did extremely well in the Beginners division.

A massive thank you to our amazing box loaders Matt and Justin, who, with Dave’s help, kept our teams on time and in the right ring as they set up for each race most definitely could not have done anything without their invaluable efforts!

A big thank you to our ball shaggers – Katelin, Corey, Holly and Elaine you guys rock!

A special thank you to Kelly and Lilian, who faithfully recorded the stats over the three days not the most exciting job, but so necessary. Also thank you to lorelei that took our dogs out for walkies when everyone was out in the lanes.

Well done to our team captains Mirella, Kym and Craig – who encouraged, cheered on and guided their teams to achieving at their best. Last of all, and most importantly, a BIG cheer for our wonderful fur babies who ran, jumped, turned, barked, and generally did what they do best trying to please their ‘hoomans’ while having the time of their life!

Bring on the 2019 Nationals! (But let’s have a little well-earned break first…)
