Pine Tree Marathon

The marathon is over, and it is always considered successful when there are no accidents, turnovers or protests.  The weather didn’t turn out as the weather channel predicted.  It never got to 70 with sun.  Rather it stayed in the low 60s at best with clouds. Good for the horses and ponies, however.  As mentioned previously, Section A was rough, but all made it through.  In Section E, the obstacles were placed so that two could easily be viewed without much movement by spectators and fans, and all six could be see if one wanted to exert oneself just a little bit.  I’m sorry that I can post some photos tonight, but will get them up tomorrow.  Complete results can be viewed at www.drivingnews.us but here are the highlights:
