Here's an alternative trial for all of you who aren't going to Lacamas this year:
Shaunavon is the little trial that could. It's been building every year and is turning into a nice quality trial.
Scott and Donnie won it last year and came home with lots and lots of goodies (dog food, all kinds of dog treats and products) and a beautiful belt buckle and Peter Gonnett and Taff won it in the inaugural year, 2009.
This year the trial is going to be one week before the Canadian Championships which are being held in BC. Both trials are sharing a judge and they are bringing over the many times South African Champion, Faansie Basson.
Shaunavon (Shaunavon, SK) : August 19-22, 2011
Canadian Championships (Cranbrook, BC) : August 25-28
