The 2015 Blue Ridge Classic Cattle Dog Championship was held at Everett Farms in Pisgah Forest NC. Everett Farms is owned by George and Carrie Lenze and the farm manager is Joffery Merrill. A huge thank you to the Lenze family for hosting this event and to Joffery with his assistance before the trial. A tremendous thank you to the numerous volunteers: Seth Parker and Richard Swift- set out pen, Karen Owens, Caitlyn Owens -Horse Set out, Rae Parker- prepared our meal, Diane Swift -Judged and Francee Delaney -Scribed. Scott Johnson and Ellen Beasley helped with course set up and break down, Flo Hix and Cindy Carrington - Photography. All of the handlers helped through out the trial , especially set out Sunday and course break down: Kelly, Joe, Carol Anne, Brian, Michael, Mr. Hix.
