24th Annual Hyperflite Skyhoundz Frisbee Dog Competition

by Harriman Real Estate on July 26, 2016

23rd Annual Hyperflite Skyhoundz Frisbee Dog CompetitionWhen I was a kid, we had a dog who loved to chase frisbees.

Notice I said “chase”, not “catch”.

If you threw the frisbee, Shep would run underneath it and watch it until it hit the ground, then he’d wait until it was finished bouncing, rolling, skidding or otherwise came to a full stop before he’d pick it up and bring it back to you, covered in doggy drool, and drop it at your feet, waiting for you to launch it into space again.

Those were the days…

Well, if you can relate to my Heinz 57 mutt and maybe have one yourself that actually catches the frisbee BEFORE it hits the ground, then this event just might be for you.

On Wednesday, July 27th from 6 – 8:30 PM, the Wallingford Department of Parks & Recreation will hold their Annual Hyperflite Skyhoundz Frisbee Dog Competition at Doolittle Park. Sponsored by Hyperflite, the premiere maker of doggie flying discs, this will be the 24th edition of this amazing competition to find the area’s best frisbee fetcher. At the first event in 1993 there were six competitors, but now this contest has grown to over fifty frisky entrants, and they can’t wait to see that first disc whizz into the air! Be sure to bring along a picnic lunch and watch all sorts of leaps, bounds and amazing catches by some talented animals. There will also be a baked potato truck there selling some tasty spuds!

To help beat the heat, there will be water pools available for the dogs to cool off in, and the competition rounds will be 60 seconds each and not back-to-back.

All dogs must be on a leash when not competing. Registration is open to anyone who is interested in seeing how their K-9 companion matches up against the best of the best, and Hyperflite will provide plaques to the top three finishers. In case of rain, the event will be held Thursday, July 28th.

By the way, my Shep would NOT have gotten a plaque…

Art Open House for Wallingford Camera Club

As you know, it is our pleasure to feature the work of local artists on our “Wallingford Inspires…” art wall throughout the year, sometimes solo artists, sometimes a group of artists. This time around we have had the pleasure of featuring the work of a very talented group of photographers, the Wallingford Camera Club.

Founded in 1976, the Wallingford Camera Club has long offered a friendly, pressure-free environment for anyone interested in photography to learn and share photography information. The club has members of every skill level, from professional photographers to vacation-snapshot photographers. We have included some examples of their work in this post, and we’re sure you’ll agree that it is of the very highest caliber.

As we do with all our artists, we are holding an art open house for the Wallingford Camera Club so everyone can come in and see their amazing photography. Read on for details…

Keep Our Independence Day Fireworks Alive

by Harriman Real Estate on April 18, 2016

For as long as I’ve lived in Wallingford, and for many years prior to my arrival, the town has marked the Independence Day holiday with a spectacular fireworks display that draws thousands, residents and non-residents alike. In 2009, the town stopped funding the fireworks but found funds for them from savings on a town insurance policy. Beginning the following year, however, funding for the annual event was again eliminated from the town budget, this time for good. Thanks to the heroic efforts of Jason Zandri and a group of volunteers, funds were raised from private sources to ensure that the holiday spectacle would continue. They have successfully raised the funds each year, allowing the citizenry to enjoy a long-standing family tradition of coming together in civic pride and community spirit. Now, however, that too has come to an end.

This year, the volunteer group has decided that the responsibility for the fireworks display should once again be taken up by the town, as it has been for so many years in the past. To assist them in convincing the Mayor and Town Council to find a place for the fireworks in the budget, I have created an online petition to try to get as many signatures as possible in support of the town resuming funding of the fireworks display. The petition has been live for about 2 weeks now and has garnered over 800 signatures as of this writing.

Fireworks displays have become almost as synonymous with America as baseball and apple pie; they bring communities together in the spirit of patriotism and pride, and remind us of how far we’ve come in two and a half centuries. They also provide a vehicle for teaching our children about history and freedom, and to never take it for granted. If our tradition of celebrating the birth of our great nation was to be stripped from us, we are all diminished by it. John Adams, delegate from Massachusetts to the Second Continental Congress, wrote home to his wife Abigail that future generations would celebrate July 2, the date the Congress voted to approve Richard Henry Lee’s resolution declaring independence from Britain for 13 of the British colonies in America. He said:

Independence Day Fireworks

While history has moved the importance of the event to the fourth of July instead of the second, Adams’ sentiment is no less valid.

If you would like to support us in our mission to save the Wallingford Fireworks, please feel free to sign the petition. You can access it by clicking on the image below, or by clicking this link:
