Every agility class is fun, but some are way more fun than others. Last night was one of those. It was Nedra's Monday Night Competitive Handling. 9 of us were there (Cheryl H, Lisa, Nedra, Georgie, Loralie, Michele S., Sandy R, me, and Sheryl Mc came with Charlie to observe--all of us competitors at various stages. Everyone was in a jovial mood, despite the heat. Excitement was in the air, with talk of recent successes and upcoming competitions. Everyone gathered to walk the course and discuss different handling options, watched each other's runs with interest, felt free to make constructive comments from the sidelines, and even jump up and demonstrate another way to handle a section to get better results. People cheered each run at the end. I felt watched, mentored, cared about, and listened to, and that's what made it FUN!
