How popular is the sport of Frisbee becoming? Very, very popular and there is little doubt it is grabbing everyone’s attention. The club is the pacesetter in the sport having the largest number of participants competing at the Canine Disc competitions. Each Tuesday night Frisbee training sessions are held starting at 7pm. The second Tuesday in the month is the beginners night so come along and you will be surprised how much the dogs enjoy this sport. Be a little earlier than 7pm as to have a chat to your instructor and meet other members in the class.
Carol Lightfoot prepared the following report about the club’s recent comp.
The club’s March 15 (2015) competition drew 139 entries possibly the biggest so far. Our Pads club had terrific representation with 16 members with 23 dogs providing a total of 23 teams competing. We were excited for our sport of Frisbee with 18 competitors competing in the Beginners grade and it was first time starter Tony Gray and his dog Baxter that took out first place. Pads also had success with winning the Excellent and Open divisions as well as being 1st and 2nd in the Freestyle Pro Skills comp. Our Pads club won 4 out of 7 events which was a terrific effort by our team. The contribution by our club members with setting up, line judging and catering was truly appreciated.
Our club members did attend a dual event at the Woodford show-grounds in late March. The Gympie club held its comp on the Saturday while the Sun-Coast club was the host club on the Sunday. Most of us camped over night at the grounds. Frisbee results from this event shortly.
