KDMA 8 Dog Championship

.
Photobucket
Today was day one of the KDMA 8 Dog Championship. It was a decent day outside. There was a thin layer of clouds in the sky but it still let the sun through. The temp was -5F with a 10mph west wind.

Here are the times, totals, day purse, and whatnot from Virgil's clipboard for those of you who are interested. I'll be back out there tomorrow for Day 2.

By the way, these photos were taken with my new Nikon D300. Still trying to figure the dang thing out. I think I need help. Lotsa help!
