2015 End of Year Awards Presentation Night




On Saturday 9 January, the Annual Awards Presentation function conducted by the Dogs Queensland Obedience State Trials Sub Committee was held at Durack.  The evening is a celebration of the achievements of individual competitors and Clubs, an opportunity to get together and relax with fellow enthusiasts, and to recognise excellence in our sports.

 Participants enjoyed an amazing smorgasbord of food, and great entertainment by Swing Magic, an ensemble of local musicians playing swing jazz and traditional music from the 1920s, 30s & 40s.  The ensemble includes double bass, saxophone, clarinet, rhythm guitar, flute and keyboard.   

 We were also delighted to welcome Dogs Queensland Directors, Lionel Blumel, Ainslie Carius and Norma Zimmerle and her husband, Kevin.   Barbara and Col Murfet sent their congratulations and best wishes from their travels in Europe.  Performance sports competitors really appreciate Directors taking an interest in and joining in the recognition of achievements in these fields.

 The evening saw the presentation of Championship and Grand Championship awards in Obedience, Tracking and Track and Search as well as Dog of the Year awards and Club shields.  Championship titles and Dog of the Year awards were based on applications from competitors;  others may have achieved similar accomplishments but did not apply for their recognition at this function.

 It was especially pleasing to see so many different breeds qualifying for top honours.
