EUROPEAN TREIBBALL START 2023, Tachyon Sport Arena, Čerčany, 28. 1. 2023
On January 28, 2023, this year's first European treibball competition took place in the Tachyon Sport Arena.
And it was a truly European race, not just in name. Due to diseases of both dogs and handlers, from the
originally registered 48 teams, 36 teams from 4 countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Germany, and Austria)
finally took part in the. The main organizers were Pavla Hejčová Langová and Jiří Čedík, and since both had
their first time as organizers, our help in the preparation, during the races and in the processing
of the evaluation and video documentation was quite significant. We also prepared the program for the
SMART run, and I acted as a judge.
Generous sponsorships made it possible to pay for the luxurious hall while maintaining a reasonable entry
fee, as well as the purchase of nice trophies and valuable prizes.
The representation of breeds was very varied: Australian Kelpie, Australian Shepherd, Barzoi, Bohemian
Shepherd, Border Collie, Collie, Dachshund, Entlebuch Cattle Dog, Labrador, Malinois, Medium Poodle,
Miniature Schnauzer, Mudi, Poodle, Portugese Water Dog, Sheltie, Schnauzer, and many crossbreeds.
After her TPLO surgery for a torn cruciate knee ligament, Aisha was already walking beautifully at the
time of the races, but she will have to wait a few more months to start the races, so this time she has
participated as a spectator and only Barnie has competed.
At her almost 13 years, Barnie gave a beautiful performance in the TRB 2 L class (she had a little trouble
to reach the goal in the FAST run, but she did very well in the SMART run) and she finished in the incredible
second place. She was defeated by Pretty and Jirka, who train with Milan, so Milan raised a conqueror and
a potential successor.
In addition to Jirka's victory with Pretty, we were also pleased with the good performances and placings
of other teams that train with us in Pesopark. Our teams placed in medal positions in all the classes where

in the competition of older and more experienced rivals.
