This trial is nearly 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 8 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.
Perfect weekend rosettes will be awarded to teams achieving Q’s in all 10 runs.
In addition we will be giving out the firth annual
Crystal's Spirit award. This award is given
in memory of
Run Throughs Friday Afternoon:
We will have run throughs on a CPE standard course, 2 levels nested, $5 for the first run, $3 for each additional run of the same dog; each dog will get 2 minutes in the ring. Toys and treats may be used, but please no crumbly treats (else we'll have to clean up the ring in the dark before the trial the next day!). Dogs should be comfortable on equipment; no other pre-requisites to come and play! No pre-registration required.
Walk throughs will begin at 4 pm, first dog on the line at 4:30. We'll rotate through jump heights and have subsequent walk throughs. Run throughs will end at or around 7 PM.
If you'd like to volunteer to help with run throughs, please contact Trisha at firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers will get 2 free runs in the run throughs for helping out. Jobs include taking money, facilitating the running order, setting bars, and running leashes. Volunteers must help for at least 90 minutes to get their free runs. Thank you!
Friday: Check-in, measuring, and setup on Friday night (6/18) from 6:00-7:30 PM.
Check-in and measuring will be from 7:00 – 7:30
The following class, level, and height order is tentative, and subject to change if necessary.
There will be NO measuring of dogs AFTER the Judges Briefing begins each day – ALL DOGS WITHOUT A PERMANENT HEIGHT CARD MUST BE MEASURED before the Judges’ Briefing in order to show that day – THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS.
Only a few copies of the run catalog will be available at the trial. The catalog will be available for download and printing on Wednesday night at www.agiledogs.net
The volunteer schedule will be posted on the AgileDogs website by Wednesday. 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.
Pet Massage: Becky Therian, www.theanimaltouch.com, canine massage (Chalupa recommends Becky quite highly).
We are pleased to have a food vendor at our trial! It will be Pork n Jojo’s (a.k.a. Eric and Joanne Lapine), and they will be offering breakfast and lunch all weekend. Volunteers will get lunch tickets good at the food vendor. (Chalupa is fond of their breakfast sandwiches.)
During the trial, move-ups in Standard 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.
