I don't think any team was super cramped in their crating areas. It was absurdly loud in there, even for flyball, but otherwise was great.
Ptera was running Open with a team I haven't run with before, the Barnstormers. I found the team to be very well organized, which I appreciated. I don't enjoy running Open as much if it seems like no one knows what they are doing, or if small arguments break out all the time about who is running in what order.

It didn't end up being the most point-rich weekend for us. Despite that, I had a ton of fun, and would happily run with this team again. Ptera has just as much fun when she gets 500 points as when she gets 50, and the overall attitude remained one of having fun and being there to enjoy the sport with our dogs.
So many fun times at the tournament, for sure.
