Off to Turlock We Go

Aaaaaand it's another CPE agility weekend. I'd rather be doing USDAA, but somehow I decided to do this weekend at CPE instead of next weekend's USDAA in Madera. In retrospect, I'm not quite sure why.

Will Tika ever earn a Level 3 Colors leg? She needs 2 to move to Level 4. She's already in Level 5 in 3 or 4 classes and Level 4 in the other 2 or 3. But can we get that Colors leg? Noooo--

Colors is a short course. Judge lays out 3 possible intertwining routes on the field, each of about 8 obstacles. Our problem is not doing the route--it's keeping the bars up. In CPE, you're allowed to earn a Qualifying score in most classes even if you knock a bar, but I guess they figure that with only 8 obstacles, you'd better be able to keep the bars up, because no dropped bars are allowed. So we've done lots of very nice on-course Colors runs with just a single bar dropped.
