Si & EZ Ryder Take 1st-2nd at Curwood

Steele and Indigo took third place in the freestyle event, behind winner Ron Watson and runner-up Apryl Lea.


It was a glorious debut for the Si-Dogger and quite the clinic put on by veteran team, Apryl Lea & EZ Ryder. The contest was in Owosso, MI, on June 7th, a very pleasant and overcast day for discdoggin’. It was really cool to be able to hang out with our crazy buddies, Chip Baker and Bryan (& Heidi) Lamky, which was a special treat.

Next stop UKC Premier.
