Hello, Everyone! Thank you for entering the August 13-14, 2011 CPE trial hosted by AgileDogs Agility Training. This is your entry confirmation. Your individual entry confirmation will come in a separate email shortly. Please be sure to look at it closely and let me know of any errors or move ups. We have 164 dogs entered for 470 runs on Saturday and 465 runs on Sunday.
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.
Perfect weekend rosettes will be awarded to teams achieving Q’s in all 8 runs.
Annual Crystal’s Spirit Award – will be given to a dog/handler team that
aren’t necessarily the fastest or get the most Q’s, but that has the most
fun and the handler gets the most out of the dog.
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 may be used, but please no treats since we’ll be using the ring for the trial the whole weekend long. 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!
Check-in, Measuring, and Starting Times:
Friday: Check-in, measuring, and setup on Friday night from 5:30-6:30 PM.
Saturday: Check-in and
measuring will be from 7:15 – 7:45
Measuring: See the website (www.agiledogs.net) for the list of dogs who will need to get measured at this trial.
TENTATIVE CLASS SCHEDULE:
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 Thursday. 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 to again have 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.
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.
