SUMMARY: Some videos from the USDAA trial.Certain people were encouraging me to post videos of my weave pole training. Well, I took some, and it's pretty bad. Maybe I'll still post it. But meanwhile I decided to try to upload the 3 measly vids I managed to remember to do out of 32 runs last weekend, and since I do this so seldom, that was 2 hours of time (between waiting for upload from my camera & then upload to youtube, and all the figuring out what I needed to do, picking the part of the video to include,and so on--no captions, no music, dunno how you all have time for that sort of nicety!).
Boost Masters Snooker SaturdayThis is just the opening--four reds (numbered obstacles are #4 jump, #6 Aframe twice, and #7 weaves), followed by #3 in the closing because my brain was so focused on getting past the offcourse jump before the tunnel that I forgot to do the correct #2 right after the weaves. You'll hear the video person comment on that.
Of course, BEFORE that, she veers off a jump that's RIGHT IN FRONT of her, then pulls off an Aframe that's RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER. But she does make her weave entry nicely, and keeps her bars up.
Then you'll see how fast she can bounce-run backwards in front of me. And then go find her leashie on the chair.
Tika Masters (p3) Snooker SaturdayI did one fewer reds with Tika in the opening, so it's just the #6 Aframe twice, #7 weaves, and I *remember* to do the #2 jump with her. However, after the #3 tunnel, I attempt a deep serpentine after the #4 jump and I'm very late, kind of in her way, and she knocks the bar. Stuff like this is why we were #4 in the country last year and this year don't even show up in the Top 25 list. Doh.
You can tell that she's happy and feeling good because she grabs my feet at the end. Funny girl.
Boost Masters Standard SaturdayIn which we miss the danged perfectly obvious weave entry, thereby negating an otherwise lovely run. She even gets a sharp rear cross right at the end, which normally would be a refusal.
Of course, she also leaves the teeter without waiting for a release, so I have to "down" her so that I can get a couple of steps ahead so she doesn't bounce-run backwards in front of me and get a refusal or runout on the next obstacle. Otherwise, her contacts were nice.
