US Open UKI shared a post.
22 Hours traveling in freezing planes to get to Jacksonville, plus 22hours to fly back to Lisbon, 1101 entries judged in four days.
Tired? Yes a lot?
Worth it?
Yes off course!
An organizing team whose motto seems to be professionalism and well do everything and make everyone feeling as if we were home.
Adding to that, very nice competitors that make you feel very well BC they are nice and BC they give their very best with their dogs in the ring to run our courses.
Sorry for not mention everyone by name but I could not remember everybody´s name so I will not nominate anyone to prevent to be unfair to those that worked so hard and whose names I can´t remember, but allow me a special word to Iris the “Judge´s Babysitter”, Chris and Wayne and his assistant whose name I can´t remember, my ring managers, Lee Gibson and Greg that back me up during the Gambler and Lisa and Lee my scribes for ring one. consider all of you congratulated by the following sentence:
Thank you all so much Head of organization, Ring crews, Back office and all the others that somehow contributed for this grate event.
Final word to my judge colleagues it was a pleasure to judge alongside with you: Paula Collins, Peggy Hammond, Lisa Selthofer, Francisco Berjon and Darryl Power.
Thank you Greg and Laura for your trust in my judgements.
