Western Regional Sheepdog finals slated for Bonanza
August 11, 2005

Fifty of the West Coast's top working border collies will gather at the Hubbard Ranch near Bonanza Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 for the Western States Regional Sheepdog Finals.

Geri Byrne, who has organized previous regional and national sheepdog events in the Klamath Basin over the past decade, said the event will showcase 50 working border collies from the eight western states. Byrne is serving as co-organizer with Amy Coapman of Montague, Calif.

"It will provide an excellent opportunity for those interested in stock dogs to see first hand these top dogs compete over a rigorous course," Byrne said.

Judging the event will be Scott Glen from Alberta, Canada. Glen is the reigning national sheepdog champion and reserve sheepdog champion for the United States and Canada.

"We are excited to have the top handler in North America be part of this prestigious event," Byrne said.

In addition to three days of sheepdog competition, there will be entertainment, food, a trade show and other "doggie activities."

Coapman and Byrne said they are receiving enthusiastic support from the event's sponsors.
