Sanctioned Agility Trial
April 3-4, 2010
High Goal Farm
(indoors, 1 ring on mats)
Our judge will be Jerry McKenzie
March 26, 2010
There are a few rules that we're asking people to follow so that we can use High Goal Farm for future trials. The pond, barn, livestock, woods, and Cerilli house are off limits to anyone at the trial. Anything else that is roped off is also off limits to anyone at the trial. There is a large field on the side of the agility building for exercising your dogs. Dogs not in the warm up area or in the ring must be leashed at all times. No smoking is allowed in the building. No alcohol or drugs are allowed at the trial site. Please clean up after yourself and your dog(s). There will be garbage receptacles for dog waste, cigarette butts, and any other garbage. Please bring water for your dogs. Crating space is limited, so please conserve space by stacking crates if possible and by using only high occupancy x-pens. Please be considerate of folks who will be crating their dogs in their vehicles by leaving the parking spaces adjacent to the building for them. Thanks in advance for complying with the above requests. In addition, please note that the building will be kept at approximately 58 degrees, so come prepared to dress in several light layers while in the building.
· Perfect weekend rosettes will be awarded to teams achieving Q’s in all 8 runs.

As a special treat for Easter, for the last class each day (Wildcard levels 3/4/5/C on Saturday and Standard level 1 on Sunday) we will have an Easter Egg drawing. Each worker for the last class will get to pick an egg and then take the wrapped gift that matches their egg number. Everyone’s a winner, and thanks in advance for working the last class each day!
Please do not worry about conflicts between classes you’re working and classes you’re running in. All workers will be accommodated. You can move your dog within a class to make sure you have time to concentrate on having a successful run with your 4-footed partner.
If your job for a given class is timer, scribe, assistant scribe, or gate steward, please report to the chief ring steward when the briefing for the class begins, so you can prepare for your job and so the judge can brief you if needed – thanks! If your job is anything not already mentioned, you can report any time before or during the walk through.
We are pleased to have a food vendor at our trial! It will be Pork n Jojo’s, Eric and Joanne Lapine, and they will be offering breakfast and lunch all weekend. Volunteers will get lunch tickets good at the food vendor.
During the trial, move-ups will be taken at the show, and
must be submitted to the Show Secretary before the completion of the last
class of the day. Thank you for your cooperation.
