Banner Park

Omaha, NE 68157
Banner Park is a lovely flat park on mowed grass with abundant paved parking.


The weather for this weekend was much better than our last 2 Fast CATs not nearly as windy and we had only 1 hour rain delay.  It took longer on Saturday to get ribbons and times out as we worked with a new secretary.  This improved much for Sunday.  The numbers and new titles are as follows:

35 dogs participated in Fun Runs.

We had 289 runs with 260 qualifiers

Thank you to the participants and volunteers that made this a successful event.

Both trials had 13 entries. Trial #1 had 2 passes, Trial #2 had 4 passes. Congratulations to each of the passing teams!
