A Short History of the All Colorado Agility Team

All Colorado Agility Team (ACAT) celebrates their 25th Anniversary this year.


This past month ACAT celebrated the 25th Anniversary of their first event that was held in May 1992.  The celebration included reduced entry fees to thank all our exhibitors that have supported us over the years, a couple of retro games (strategic pairs and power and speed) and a catered BBQ on Saturday evening.  The weather was glorious and a good time was had by all at the Minnequa Lake Park Athletic Fields in Pueblo, CO. Patty Drom and Jan Skurzynski judged the event. Patty judged that first trial in 1992.


Kent Mahan attended his first USDAA trial in 1990. The next year after attending USDAA Nationals at the Astrohall in Houston, he put together the paperwork to establish the ACAT as the first Colorado USDAA club. The first trial was held at the Livestock Pavilion at the Colorado State Fair Grounds in May 1992 with The aforementioned Patty Drom judging. There were 35 dogs running representing 13 States. Exhibitors included Darlene Woz, Karen Gloor, Harry and Pat Guticz, Bud Houston and Scot Bartley among others. The club has held the spring trial on the third weekend in May ever since for many years at the soccer field at Colorado State University, Pueblo and more recently at Minnequa Lake Park in Pueblo. A second fall trial was added in the mid-90's and has been held at Aga Park in Fountain for many years and occasionally at other sites.
