Three NW3 Titles are required to earn NW3-Elite. It is extremely unusual to Title at every single NW3 Trial entered (average is eight attempts to reach all three Titles), but Linda and Tigger accomplished just that! In February 2016, they earned their third and final NW3 Title plus NW3-Elite (and all four Element Ribbons), with a Third Place finish Overall.
