Congratuations to the 7th Annual Crystal's Spirit award winner. This year's winner was Erik Kessler and Desi, an Australian Shepherd. Erik is a junior handler, and besides working his butt off as a volunteer, he was a great, positive handler with the right attitude all weekend long.
Pictures coming soon!
Hello, Everyone! Thank you for entering the August 11-12, 2012 CPE trial hosted by AgileDogs Agility Training. This is your entry confirmation. Your individual entry confirmation has already come in a separate email. Please be sure to look at it closely and let me know of any errors or move ups. We have 187 dogs entered for 560 runs on Saturday and 545 runs on Sunday, and will be taking day of show entries, for $14 per run, so tell your friends to come!
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.
The seventh (wow!) annual Crystal’s Spirit Award is a judge’s choice award, given to the 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.
Check-in, Measuring, and Starting Times:
measuring, and day of show entries 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.
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
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.
The volunteer schedule will be posted on the AgileDogs website by Thursday. Thanks to all who volunteered! If you want to volunteer or have questions, please email Lisa Norris, firstname.lastname@example.org . 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.
