Judges Bio - Dan Yielding: I am honored that you have asked me to judge at FAST, at your July Trial. I started in agility, watching
Lynda play with her Toller, Shadow, who is now 13 years old. I decided that this was an activity that I wanted to get into, because it
looked like a lot of fun, and the people were great people. I started competing with Spryte, my own new Toller, in 2001, and I was
hooked right away! Spryte earned her Bronze before retiring; and her daughter, Rebecca has her Bronze, and is still carrying the Toller
torch, for Muskoka Agility Dogs (MAD)!

As judges, both Lynda and I have been privileged to travel from coast to coast, and have met and become friends with agility folks
right across Canada. Both of us have a special warm spot in our hearts for you in the Maritimes. You demonstrate in a very real way,
what we believe in so strongly: the Spirit of Agility. That means that you support one another... that you celebrate successes.... all
successes....that you build on each other's strengths.....and that you always see that the glass is at least half – full!

I am so looking forward to being in the Maritimes again in July! Good luck to everybody!
