MEEKER I Dennis Gellings from British Columbia won the 2008 Meeker Classic Sheepdog Championship Trials, not Dennis Edwards, who was incorrectly given credit in the Sept. 13, 2012, issue of the Rio Blanco Herald Times.

The unique ability of border collies to locate and fetch sheep is demonstrated here by 2009 Meeker champ, Ethel. Veteran handler Chris Jobe and Western Border Collie rescue director Chris Goetz will explain this and more at one of the Meeker Classic’s special educational seminars, “Border Collies - Training, Trialing and Working.” Also not to be missed are Christine Halandras’s cooking seminar “Taste of Colorado Lamb”, and “Leatherwork, Repairs and Saddlemaking” presented by Bob Klenda and Mike Brennan on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (Sept. 9-11) at the 25th anniversary of the Meeker Classic Sheepdog Trials in Ute Park.
