​​2022 PWDCA Sanctioned Sweepstakes and Supported Entry

We had wonderful weather, participants, volunteers, and judge at Canyon Lake in our 18th year of hosting PWDCA sanctioned water trials. It takes a community of friends to hold the trials, and we thank all who make our time together so special!
