I just returned from judging the the PSA Midwest regiuonals this past weekend, hosted by Southern Ohio Protection Sports in Cincinnati OH. I had a great time visiting with old friends and meeting some new ones. Cory Dewberry with help from many quarters put on a great show. Darryl Richey the regional director of the midwest and PSA President came in from Texas, and the Asst Director Matt Faccento came in from Tennessee. Christie Meyer did a wonderful job administering the trial secretarial duties, and keeping the show organized amd moving.
There were Rottweillers, Dobermans, Pit Bulls, Malinois and some dogs I venture not to make a guess at breed competing. PSA opens its arms to all comers if they have the juice to compete. The midwest is growing and coming together, and it is nice to see. Vinnie Faccento won High in Trial, with an excellent performance with his Malinois Female, CJ.
I hope to see all of the competitors come to support their region in Cookeville TN for the 2008 PSA National Championships. Go to www.psak9.org to get information on the National Event which is looking to be quite a show. I am proud to say that Tarheel Canine will be a major event sponsor for the Nationals this year, and I invite you to come by and see our booth at the event.
