For anyone familiar with flyball - Franklin achieved his ONYX (20,000 points) title this weekend, in just over 3 years. ... fun. He's the 5th FCR to achieve this, and hopefully will earn many more points in the next few years!

Congrats! I think it would be better for kids as well as dogs if more point accumulations were just about having fun.

Congratulations to you and Franklin!
To the non-flyballers in the group, Franklin and his team had to run 800 sub-24 second heats in order to accumulate this many points (or a whole buttload more over-24 second heats).
To date my BCs have earned their FMCH titles (15,000 points), and my JRT, who is newer to the game, has his FM (5,000 points).

We were at a tournament this past weekend, and as usual, I feel like I've been mugged. My ears are still ringing, and it would be easier to name the body parts that aren't sore than to list the ones that hurt. Even so, I'm looking forward to the next one three weeks from now.
