March 25, 2011 - Confirmations have gone out!

Hello, Everyone!  Thank you for entering our April 2011 CPE Trial hosted by AgileDogs Agility Training.  This is your entry confirmation. We have a total of 135 dogs entered for 409 runs on Saturday and 389 runs on Sunday.   

This trial is full to capacity!  We are going to do our best to move the trial along efficiently while making sure everyone has a safe and successful run and gets their time in the ring.  Walk throughs will be timed at 7 minutes all weekend long.  We will be counting on our volunteers (thank you so, so much!) to help make the weekend go smoothly.  Please listen to both the general briefing in the morning and the judge’s class briefings for ways we can make the trial run more efficiently.

Site Details:   

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.

Friday:          Check in, Measuring and Setup on Friday night from 5:00-6:30 PM. 

Also, from 4-8 pm Wendy Cerilli will be holding run throughs at the trial site, on a nested standard course.  The cost is $6 for the first run and $4 for each additional run with the same dog.  Even if you have not pre-registered, you can still participate in run throughs.  Contact Wendy Cerilli, agilitytraining@yahoo.com 518-692-8758, for more information.

The volunteer schedule will be posted on the AgileDogs website by Wednesday 3/30 at 6pm.  Thanks to all who volunteered!

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 yet again to have Pork n Jojos, Eric and Joanne Lapine, as our food vendor!  They will be offering breakfast and lunch all weekend, and will be located outside at the “back” end of the building.  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. 

The deadline for contacting the secretary with move ups or corrections before the trial is Monday, March 28th, 6pm.  Any changes to entries made after that date will be subject to a $5 service change fee.
