Redfest Fun & Games

This year saw the club take on Redfest over both days, with the Obedience, Agility and DWD display teams taking the limelight on the Sat and Flyball teams, including four from Redlands Flyball Racing gathering the crowds on the Sunday.

Our Sat Demo team!

It was an early start on both days with numerous pieces of equipment to set up, peg down and plug in. Saturday proved to be very windy so careful layout out and pegging down was required.

Whilst the crowds weren’t huge, the efforts of all the participants were well appreciated. Across the day there were a multitude of displays and demonstrations.

As usual Sharon and Holly captivated the crowd with their routines, but this year they were joined by, Anne, Paulo, Caroline and Soina in both a group routine with Strudle, Chicca and Winston, as well as Caroline and Adam doing their Ekka winning routine. It was amazing to see how far they had all come and how much they were all loving playing up to the crowd.

Not to be outdone, our Agility teams showed off their versatility and expertise with some great runs in tough, hot and windy conditions. Again we were placed next to the camels which proved a distraction to some more than others.

We had a variety of obedience displays, with all different levels showing their skills. It was great to see how far they had come and how well they worked in what was a hugely distracting environment.

All in all it was a great day, which was down to the hard work of all the participants, in both training for the event and setting it up!

Sunday saw the Redlands Flyball Racing Teams take to the Spring Sensations Competition. It has been a long season for our teams and with the Nationals fast approaching, the end of the season is in sight.

Another hot and windy day meant interesting conditions for racing but there were a couple of individual bests, including, Kelly and Jorja for running a pb of 4.5sec and Donna and Pippa with their pb of 5.6 sec.

Burn n Bolt also ran a new Queensland record of 17.147 seconds. What an amazing result.

Not bad results after a long year and the big one still to come! Huge thanks to the sponsors who helped make it a great day, in particular Ivory Coat.

As you see this was a huge weekend for the club, so there are quite a few thanks to go around. In no particular order,

Craig and Edna for keeping on top of all the comps this year and continuing to organise everything with four teams.

Kate Hutchinson for her amazing packing and driving skills.

Karin Burns for getting the demo team ready.

Julia Fenton for just being everywhere.

Pauline Oldman for continuing to support all aspects of the flyball team.

And everyone else that helps out and keeps the club running. We really couldn’t attend these events without a huge amount of effort and support. So thank you everyone.
