I LOVE the concept of snooker
all that thinking in one place … and it works for velcro dogs too – I can take as long as I want in the opening and see how far I can get in the closing
From the very first time I tried it at Morningstar in May 2007 I was hooked… I think it might be fair to say snookers is a cause of my addiction to agility. Brody and I laid out a thinking course – red – 6 point teeter- red- 6 point teeter – red- 7 point weaves and then he was in the perfect place to start the closing … number 2 tunnel; 3 tunnel; 4 aframe; 5 long spread out sequence of jumps (our downfall- we took wayyy too long here) and then back on 6 the teeter …SCREEEEEEEEEE the whistle blew as the board was tipping- making our first snookers outing just ONE point short of what we needed- actually I was glad as more time in starters snookers class will pay off when we get higher up.
With Sally’s only snookers outing she was eliminated bing bang – red jump, tunnel, second tunnel – SCRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEE – she’ll work so far away from me that convincing her NOT to make up a course on the way back to me will be tricky – she is a gal and a half tho
Thea did really well in her first snookers outing (CPE) she easily got the points needed for her q and had a blast doing so
AAC she’s running well – she’s zippy enough that I can aim to do either sequences and adores the frame too so can easily do it 4 times in a round .. that evil teeter came to early on our last course tho – worth only 4 points it meant her run stopped at 29!
I’d love a trial that was just snookers 🙂
