With August half way through and the Scheels Expos, featuring the SRS Super Dock, about to come to a close, we start to look toward the last Retriever Trial Qualifier and the SRS Crown Championship. The Super Dock Crews have been on the road with 2 different docks since mid July and have had a blast at the Scheels Expos all over the country. We had new events on the dock made their debut, announced UKC titles on the dock and have had many qualified for the Crown Championship this fall in Huntsville, Al. We have only a few more qualifiers on the road and a last chance qualifier for the dock on Friday, October 31, 2014 in Huntsville at the Crown Championship.
