AKC Agility National Championships

Today was the kick-off of the 2010 AKC Agility National Championships in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Today's event focused on individual state competition. So far I've been really impressed with AKC's coverage of the event. Results were posted on facebook within minutes final results and the full list of results have been posted on the championship website within 30 minutes of the final scores.

To top it off, so many of the "local" (New England) folks are out in Oklahoma kicking butt - it was fun to watch some of them walk and run their courses today (via the livestream).We hope to be out there with them next year - yeah, I'm putting it out there, Teller and I are going to shoot for the 2011 National Championship - We'll figure out the logistics once we get through the qualification criteria (6 QQ's and 400 points). We've got a long way to go. I am hoping it'll return to the eastern seaboard too - that'd be doubly nice..

To top off all of the super coverage by AKC, the good folks of Agility Vision are offering live-streaming and video on demand for three of the four rings. The quality of this product is outstanding and very reasonably priced. For those of use left behind it's almost like sitting ringside - only you get to sit ringside at three rings simultaneously...
