In July, my Shelby earned her RAE, and on October 20 and 21, she earned her Preferred Open title with three straight qualifying scores, three first place ribbons, and three High in Preferred Classes awards. On Saturday, she scored 198 twice, the best we have ever done. Shelby is my treasured partner, and I love that feeling.
