As the course was actually set, the weaves were at more of a right angle to the tire. I opted to take only a modest lead out since I decided to stay on the right side of the teeter and push to #5. From the table, I once again just took a small lead out so I could push to #10 and support #11. Then I took off running so I could get to the right side of the weaves as Belle was approaching the bottom of the dogwalk. I decided the best way for me to handle the tire was to take Belle there on my left, making sure we approached it head on. (Since Belle is relatively small, I often have her slice an AKC tire. But the smaller diameter of the USDAA makes that a non-option.)
Here's the course map for Sunday's PIII Standard run. This course ran a lot smoother and easier for me. Possibly because we didn't need the Q :-) Unfortunately, I was unable to get this one taped. But I ran it pretty much as indicated. In order to ensure a nice approach to the dogwalk, I traveled at least as far to the left as the tunnel exit. At the table, I only lead out a stride or so in order to promote a straight line to the tire. From then on it was pedal to the metal.
