Blogging Slacker!

Guess I haven’t been too good about updates here. Enzo’s contacts are still holding up although maybe not quite as fast as I would like so I’m working on speed in practice now. Double Q’s are coming a lot easier now and hopefully we’re catching in the Invitational point standings. He’s earned about 550 points since mid-December. Last weekend we trialed 3 days and Enzo Q’d in 5 out of 6 runs 2nd place to Dash in 4 of the runs and 1st place in one run. He got his 18th and 19th double Q’s on Friday and Saturday. Went for his MACH for the first time last Sunday but he took an off course tunnel. Totally my fault for not decelerating. I ran Tooney after Enzo and at least managed to execute my plan properly for her.

This weekend our trial got rained out. The rain was done by the weekend but the fields were too wet so they wouldn’t let us run on them.

Here’s the videos from last weekend.

Also here’s some videos from New Years weekend that I never posted on here. He was flying in JWW that day and got 1st place.

Crazy week of training

The New Year started with my 2nd annual Jam Camp. Every year it’s 2-3 days of training with some of the best frisbee freestylers around. Intended primarily for human freestyle, but it is very helpful for disc doggers. There were loads of world champions and people who invented most of the throws and tricks we use today. Almost as many instructors as students! Some of my favorite instructors are Dave Lewis, Stork, Dave Schiller and Ron Watson.

After that long weekend I was completely worn out, but just a few days later on Wednesday I had my private lesson with Ron Watson. He went over all sorts of different concepts, throws and tricks. It was about 4 hours of instruction.

Then we had a group seminar with Ron Watson the following weekend, which was another 7 hours of instruction. I’m physically and mentally exhausted.

I can’t even say specifically what I’ve learned because it was just an overwhelming amount of information. I will say that it was mostly just rehash of things I already knew or was at least familiar with. It was fun and probably down the road I’ll pull something out that I learned.
