Much like Ben's National Final's run. After a fantastic season, lack of experience caught up with him. After a good session on the practice field the day before I was looking forward to running Ben. He left my feet the way I expected, but when he got to the top he was spooked by the set out crew (no fault of theirs, they were completely consistent through the week), lost his sheep back to set out and we retired. Such is life running young dogs.
Having said that, we had a Fantastic time at the finals in Klamath Falls. Many thanks to the everyone who made these finals a success. We spent the week watching great teams run, visiting "Texas and California", closing down a party or two, and just plain visiting with old friends we don't to see often enough as well as meeting new friends we'd like to see more often.
I didn't take any pictures, but Kristi Oikawa took a bunch of great ones. Her slide show really says it all.
Looking forward to doing it all again next year.
