One Week to go!!!

The excitement builds as we approach our trip to Belgium.  Alpha Dogz and lots of teams from the BFA are busy preparing for the trip.  Note to team:  Must not forget important things  Which are :

DOGS (lol, pretty pointless without them really)

Passports ( us and Dogz)

Insurance Details (Us and Dogz)

EHIC card

Money/ Credit cards

As JC would say " everything else can be begged or bought"...  The above items are however crucial...

Roll on 27th May, it will soon be here......

 

21st May 2009 The divisions are announced...

The divisions for the Championships have been published on the EFC 09 website..  Alphas Abroad are in Division 9, and are the only UK hope in this division.

We are excited to be racing all foreign teams, from Belgium, Hungary, France and Germany.  We look forward to some close racing...

Alphas Abroad Results

We were very pleased to come 2nd in the round Robin stages of the tournament on Friday and Saturday.  This meant we had a bye through to the second round of the Double eliminator so the dogs could take it easy on Saturday afternoon.

Unfortunately we were beaten in our first two round of the Double eliminator on Sunday morning and therefore we out and placed 5th in the competition. 

We learned alot during our trip to Belgium and realised that DE racing was totally different to our system in the UK.   We were beaten fair and square by better teams who knew how to play the game.  We will return to EFC 10, with a better knowledge of the system and will hopefully fair a little better in the final stages of the competition.

Overall though we thought not bad for a first effort!!!!
