Aflac Outdoor Games!

Looks like the Outdoor Games are coming back (well sort of) with a new sponsor, Aflac! The dates are set, June 27 – 29, 2008 at South Commons in Columbus, Georgia.

The agility lineup isn't set yet, so if you'd like to give it a go, they are looking for a few good dogs! We'd love to participate, but even though I'm not nearly as speedy as some of the top national level dogs, I have my moments sometimes, and a highly competitive environment could just bring it out in me. Well...maybe not. And Georgia is just a bit too far for us to travel right now, with the current competition schedule we have going. Ahhh, we can dream for someday, right?

Here's a bit of info from their website...
The Aflac Outdoor Games is a 3-day event providing families and friends an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. The inaugural event is scheduled for June 27 – 29, 2008 at South Commons in Columbus, GA.
