    Blinddogmaddie, I agree with you.

    Personally, I've organized nothing. RTF is essentially the "newspaper" that was used to announce the event. The big thanks go to Nancy and her husband and neighbors, as well as Stan and all of the many others pulling together to pitch in and have a fun training day.

    I'll be there tomorrow morning.

    I look forward to meeting lots of new folks and to a fun, low-stress, low-pressure day of throwing marks for each other!

    Chris

You can have a picnic anywhere and pick up the ingredients at virtually any grocery store or Wal Mart.
    What Nancy has made available to a great number of strangers is a training day on her grounds. She has opened her home to mostly strangers to frolic and enjoy a weekend with their dogs. You can't buy that at Wal Mart. Not only that, she has tolerated some huge ego's selflessly, which I know has caused her some grief. Most people would have said to hell with the headaches & ego trip and pulled the plug on this affair.
    Not Nancy, she has smiled through it all and worked her butt off & managed to provide you all an opportunity to have a fun filled enjoyable weekend on her land and her dime. I know she has a lot on her plate right now in addition to the added responsibility this weekend entails. In addition to all that you people will soon learn that not only has she cheerfully provided you all and your dogs a playground to train on; but that that playground is a world class playground for dogs. You will be hard pressed to find nicer training grounds anywhere than what Nancy has gracefully offered up to the RTF community.

    I wish I were there right now as originally planned.
    Thank You Nancy for all you do

    SALUTE!!!!
    Mark, I think Nancy is very gracious to do this and allow all of us on her property. I also know that we are all adults and have not yet arrived in Casey IL. You can rest assured that anyone in my family (my wife and I) will be sure to express our utmost gratitude to ALL involved with making the event go on as planned. Especially Nancy, but including the others that made communications about the event with the forum. Since about the age of 18, (which was so long ago I can barely remember it) I have not needed another adult to remind me how to conduct myself in public or private, or when to express appreciation for anything. Talk about egos...

    We cannot thank Nancy enough, no matter how many times, and in how many ways we say it. Nancy, you are the BEST!
