Turbo Track Competition 2012

 Hurrah..... It's finally August 9th and 10th.. Time for the Turbo Track competition... It's a two-day competition (mainly cuz, HH read the schedule wrong and put it up a day early.  MOL). The other event for today (8/10) is a Snoopendous Sniff-a-thon. Don't miss it.
  Anyway, we are excited if you dropped by yesterday and even more excited if you dropped by today for the first time. Enjoy the activities and the great performances by all the athletes.

We have been looking forward to this since Max suggested it.  Bugsy and Knuckles are avid Turbo Trackers... Here are a couple shots for illustration, and then we'll move on to the main competition...

Ellie wins the award as Best in Footwork... Look at her dance!

The second photo is cousin Trooper from

Ohhhh I want a Turbo Track! Love, Licks and Tummy Rubs (do you fuzzy kitties like these too?) From your new furiend Frank xxxxxx

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Hi Max - I enjoyed checking out your event...... it was so cool - I didn't have a turbo track otherwise I would have entered. Mum is not sure that she has ever seen the turbo track here in Australia - but she is sure that Angel Cleo (the cat that ruled the house before I came along) would have enjoyed a TT.

Tail Wuggles, Rubie xxx
