RIALP SUMMER AGILITY CUP 2023 is over. 1 year of intense work and preparation and a last month of total stress to have all the organization and logistics ready. This year the rain hasn’t made an appearance, but the strong wind has conditioned us a lot and broken some tents. This year we were able to have the Junior final and the Grand Final as planned. A great Final that sums up all the work, the stands and all around the ring full of people eager to see the show, the magnificent atmosphere, the desire to enjoy and dance during the set-ups and recognitions of the track. It was unthinkable and it was not planned for it to come out this way, it was amazing, I’m sure you all already want the next edition to arrive. Without a doubt it was the best Rialp Summer Agility Cup of all the ones I organized.
Immense thanks to all the staff of the Ciutat Comtal Agility Club, Heads of Rings, Assistant Judges, Ring Team, many of you were the first time to come to this madness and you have been immense worked hard, under the sun and wind, always with a smile so that all the competitors felt at home and we succeeded.
Thanks to the main tentteam, Rosa, Judit and Arantxa, you endured the stress with very good grades.
Thanks to our vets Carles and Alicia who have always been attentive to any incident.
Thanks to our DJ Germán who worked on the music to make everything work and made us enjoy and dance at the Grand Final with his original music and special effects.
Above all, I would like to congratulate my favorite student, Alina and Kumo, who every time they go out to compete, they show us that agility is for everyone and that there are no excuses. You have managed to level up to Grade 2!!
