Alas, what would a good disc dog event be without weather, and weather we got. We drove up on Saturday and found ourselves drenched in some pretty decent rain on the drive in the wee early morning hours.
We helped set up, set up our own camp (An EZ-Up) and tackled the misty, blustery day as best we could.

It was a very long day with all the competitors that had shown up. Not only that, but we had to help break down the tournament event just so we could put it all back up the next day! (Oh, the heaviest rain of the day came while we were breaking down the competition gear. It stopped almost as soon as we finished.)
Sunday was a very different day, indeed.
On Sunday the much needed rain took its leave and we were left with moderate winds that either forced us to throw with the wind but into the sun, or into the wind, but with the sun at our backs.
But fates and a flustered or tired dog had a different plan for us.
Yes, I was a nervous wreck. I spent about 15 minutes working with Morgan on she could throw the disc and letting her and Vader play a bit so when she was on camera, she would have a practiced throw and Vader would go get it for her.
WHEW! On that count. But after that my day went a bit south.

The migraine did not help.
