Gibson Ranch 2019

A message from trial organizer Patti Sowell...


Let me start with the finish. Wow Northern California Sheepdog Association Club Members, awesome job! So many stayed after the trial and helped bring in the course panels, pen, take down fencing and remove the exhaust pen. With all your help we got it done before the rain returned. Thanks to you all!

What a great group we had to work with Tom Spencer and LisAnn Spencer, (who go above and beyond supporting this sport with all the trials they put on) provided sheep and did set out all day Saturday. And they always jump in to help.

Steve AlongiMelinda Alongi  and Amy Alongi provided sheep, corral panels, wire, t-posts, etc. and all the labor helping put it all together. Extra thanks to our Club President Amy Alongi for such great organization with the necessary paperwork.

The very important job of working in the set out pens: Thank You Hunter Spencer!

Thank you also to:

Virginia Dains for hauling the club trailer and help setting up, setting out all day Sunday, then breaking down and hauling it all back out.

Jean Singer for setting out Sunday and then helping with “take down.”

Yvette Cook for keeping the help happy and well fed. Great Hostess!

Rusty Jeffers and Suzy Applegate for judging.

Thank You All!!
