USDAA Letter
By Ken Tatsch

We want to thank everyone who attended the 2017 Cynosport® World Games in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. We hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did.

There are many people who play a role in making Cynosport the success that it is. A special thank you to all the volunteers, and to all the competitors who stepped in to help whenever possible. We could not run Cynosport without your support.

We are already well underway in planning Cynopsort® 2018 in Scottsdale, Arizona from October 31 through November 4. With Thanksgiving quickly approaching please take note of the dates for regional championships and these other important events for 2018:  two Title Mania® events and the Masters Challenge Agility CupSM. You can find all event date information at http://usdaa.com/events.cfm.

We are in the process of naming three advisory committees for 2018. These will be small working committees who will have their pulse on regulations & course design, special events & awards, and marketing. Anyone who feels they have expertise in one of these areas and may be interested in contributing by serving on one of these committees should download, complete and submit the Advisory Committee Information Form. Information on the committees and the application form can be found at http://usdaa.com/article.cfm?newsID=3656Forms should be submitted by 12:00 noonMonday, November 20.

We all have much to be thankful for, and the entire USDAA staff wishes you and your family a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

Rescue Dog's First Cynosport Experience

"From the street to the GP Semis!" said Fly's delighted owner, Karen Stinnett. Fly was a Border Collie puppy who wandered down the road near her property. He was sick with fleas, ringworm, ehrlichia and anemia and was hungry and dehydrated. Karen took him in and three years later, Fly attended Cynosport and exceeded her expectations.

Although Fly didn't end up on the podium, he handled all of the activity with aplomb! Read more about his story on the USDAA website.
