Disc Dog State Championship

This past weekend the boys and I went camping for the MN Disc Dog State Championship.  Vito and I did our very first freestyle routine and some how managed to win the novice division. I'm not sure how since it was very evident that we had no actual routine planned and Vito didn't actually catch much of anything besides a few flips.  Of course he always has a blast.  I felt like an idiot.

We had a lot of these

 And a few of these

Vito got minimal points in T&C and Longshot was a complete bust.  I just wasn't able to get the disc out far enough ahead of him for Vito to catch it.  Instead he did his typical out running of the disc and leaping at it when he's underneath it.
We have one catch picture!!!

Pairs Catch-22 seemed to be our game though!  Adam, Vito, and I were a team and took turns tossing disc in opposite directions.  It was perfect for Vito since we were able to throw the next disc as he was running back and thus the disc was way out in front of him to actually judge take off. 

Lance escaped from his spot and ran over to us during the pairs award (3rd).  Adam figured he could stay since he's like a little mascot.

Thanks to Adam, JG, Emily, and Larry for the pictures!

Disc dog sounds like a lot of fun. That's so great that you won your division - at a state level!! Way to go! :)

I wouldn't consider it a state level competition. While it is the state championship competition and can sometimes attract disc doggers from out of state or further areas, the majority of the competitors are members of the club and thus from the Twin Cities or surrounding areas. So it feels more like a big end of the year bash that anything else :) But thank you!
