    OMG :yikes: it rained at that years Regionals in Orono!!!!!!!!!!! People were falling and getting hurt. A very good rainsuit was absolutey needed. EZ Ups and tent camping were flooded out, people couldn't keep dry. Thankfully I was there with a camper and we were able to stay nice a warm and dry off between runs.
    There were about 4 inches of water in the bottom of the tunnels!! Mud everywhere, they kept putting shavings down in the worse places on course and it helps somewhat but it was nasty lol.
    lol it was raining so hard at one point dogs were going into tunnels and not coming out.

    And that was on grass............

    I remember that regionals. They day of the major rain.. I was a volunteer. For a while my job was to kneel in the teeming (and I mean TEEMING) rain and hold the chute open for the little dogs. I don't think I have ever felt that soggy.

    lol, I remember while waiting under the tent and being about 3 dogs away from running in the standard class, that it couldn't rain any harder.........I was wrong lol. It was raining so hard you couldn't see the other side of the ring!!
    This Petie doing the frame during that run, all that grey is the rain lol.

    Yikes. I was so not into agility yet that year. I only knew it had been close to home, I hadn't realized it had poured rain. Looks like a trying year that year too. Wow.
