March 17, 2007 HLRSC Nationals - Prescott, AZ
Tracy and I decided to fly separately from the airports in our
area. Tracy had plans to fly out from Roanoke which is about a 1.5 hr
drive for her and I decided that flying out of Harrisburg International Airport
would be the smart way to go considering it's only less than 15 minutes from my
house. Anyway Tracy had to meet at the Roanoke AP Friday morning and I was
supposed to leave from HBG IAP at 12 noon that same day. The weather had
been in the 70s the whole week up until Friday when it decided to snow. My
12 noon flight was cancelled and I had no other way of getting to nationals.
I was especially looking forward to nationals this year since I missed
convention. I decided to take whatever was available so they booked me for
Saturday at 2:23 pm. A few minutes later I get a call from Tracy--her
flight had been cancelled too!!! Tracy was able to reschedule a flight from Lynchburg
which was a lot closer to her house. She arrived in Prescott later Friday
evening. It snowed throughout the night in PA.
On Saturday morning, a foot of snow later, it didn't look too
promising! Thankfully the sun tried to come out and made the snow a lot
easier to shovel so I figured things were looking up.
It was my first time flying alone and with the rabbits so I
wasn't sure what I was going to have in store. All I knew is that I wanted
to get there to hang out with Tracy and see all our friends and have a good
Bunnies getting on board. WHEW!! One down, a few
more stops to go.
All the flights went smoothly from Harrisburg to Cincinnati to
Phoenix. By the time I got into Phoenix the sun was about to set. I
had to wait for the shuttle van service to take me to my destination about an
hour and a half to Prescott. The longest hour and a half in my entire
When I arrived at 9:00 pm AZ time, Tracy was there waiting.
The banquet was over and everyone was leaving with their awards from nationals
that day. I felt bummed at the thought that it was already over, but at
the same time I was just happy to be there! We got some dinner at Bucky's
and went down to the Casino. I was pretty tired, so I went up to the room
to sleep while Tracy played on the slots. At 2:30 Tracy gets back to the
room with big news. She won $1500!
Sunday morning we went to get breakfast and then headed to the
The bunnies did well. See the results page!

Afterwards we went up to the room, hung out, and let some of
the bunnies run around on the floor.
Laz had the best time!
Do I know you?

Afterwards we went out with LeAnne & Melanie Caraway from OK
for pizza with her family. Thanks guys for taking care of us! We had
The Prescott Hotel Casino & Conference Center in AZ
(on the ride back home)
Tracy and I travelled back to Atlanta where were got on
different flights home. She left an hour earlier than me. Everything
was going smooth until I looked out the window and noticed a carrier with a few
empty holes, no cart attached, and a rabbit that didn't look like mine. I
had a feeling they switched our carriers around. Sooner or later I was
going to find out where my rabbits went. I called Tracy to let her know
and she was just arriving into Lynchburg (my flight was late taking off).
I arrived in HBG and Tracy calls to tell me that she didn't
get any rabbits on her flight! What seemed like longest wait in my entire
life in the check baggage I felt sick to my stomach. Having the worst
thoughts about where my carrier must be and what would happen next.
A half hour later Tracy's cart comes out followed by my cart. I had BOTH
of our shipping carriers and all of the rabbits. LOL. Thank god!
What a trip!

in the future ;)

MARLON is kicking bunny butt in Missouri - 9-26-06
N Rabbitry told me she tries not to walk around as proud as a peacock
but she just can't help it. She told me that Saynora's Marlon aka, Humpty just
keeps winning. A few notable wins are:
5-12-06 The Missouri Picnic BOV with Josh Humphries and BOS
and BOV with Gary Michaud.
6-4-06 Ozark Hare Raisers Anderson MO - BOB
8-26-06 Summer Shootout Claremore, OK - BOB
Harrisonville MO - BOB & BOS
All the other shows he placed 2nd. For the folks that didn't
attend HL Nationals, Classy Country Hollanders had their own trio up for raffle
and Saynora's Marlon was one of the bunnies in that trio. We wanted to put a
very nice rabbit, one that would make a difference in a breeder's herd.
We are glad that Marlon is doing well for new owners: Nicole
(Mom) & Brittany (daughter) Balwin. Good luck Marlon, Nicole &
ARBA Convention - THF Saynora has been asked to donate another
Holland Lop to this year's trio to benefit the
HLRSC. Be sure and get a raffle ticket, maybe you will find a bunny like
Marlon in the bunch ;P
