A quick update on our first show in Moorsele, Belgium for those not on facebook!
It was a very successful show, we finished the first day in 5th place on 67.88%, the 2nd test on Saturday in 3rd on 69.77% and finally cracked the 70% barrier with a 4th place and 71% on Sunday for the musical test.
So we are well on track for meeting the NZ selection criteria for the World Champs in August, which is 3 average scores over 70%. Unfortunately the musical scores don't count but Saturdays was so close it has given me a lot of confidence. We have had great feedback from the judges and have more improvements we can make so back to the grind tomorrow before we move south to Mannheim on Thursday for the next show.
We compete Sunday, Monday & Tuesday and am looking forward to having my friend, sponsor and integral part of the team Debbie Rolmanis as support and to keep Don and I fresh and fit - I am definitely in need of a massage or 5!!
For now it is early to bed (after already having had a good nap!)
