 Anne's Statement:  "I have been a certifier for over 20 years. Burns Llama Trailblazers has the longest running record for putting on annual pack trials in the organization, most of which I have been involved in certifying at some level.  I am also the Challenge Coordinator and would be glad to do both events and train challenge masters if the group was interested."

Lisa Wolf, Oregon
Lisa enjoys training certifiers and mentoring event organizers. She certifies all levels of pack trials.  She enjoys traveling outside her local area of SE Oregon to assist trial committees and certifiy trials, although she requires support from the sponsoring organization for distances of over 500 miles and a place to curl up in a sleeping bag. She is also happy to organize and run Challenge events. Lisa has been designing PLTA pack trial courses and certifying trials for 15 years. She has over 25 events and many trials to her credit.
