Till the start of the winter show circuit and most of us have colds, it’s wet and there are not many suitable places to rehearse! The stress levels are rising in both the parents and the children!
We don’t have far to drive now to get to Gympie where we start our circuit competing at the Gympie show then the following day (Sunday) performing at the Gympie RSCPC Million Paws Walk.

When it rains we often cannot train and travelling up the east coast there are not many free camps where we can pull up for a couple of days and set up the agility equipment!
I’m sure it will all work out, it always does. I remember a few years back a few days before our first of the year show telling the girls that their routines needed a lot of work, in fact I just may or may not have told them that their routines sucked! BUT on the day, they shone! I know this year will be the same.
We did train/rehearse this week after spending time at the beach, when we found an amphitheatre. Some of the locals/tourists enjoyed a free show.
Playing at the beach was a good stress reliever and the girls did well with the rehearsal, but need a bit of polishing before the first show in two weeks!
