NEWS: December 25 - the
confirmation letters have gone out.
Thank you for entering the AgileDogs 2007 New Year's CPE trial! Special thanks for those who have volunteered to help. Trials could not happen without the wonderful folks who volunteer to work! If you have not yet volunteered but would like to, we still have openings on the schedule. Contact Trisha (Trisha@agiledogs.net or 518-794-0168). Volunteering is a great way to learn more about the sport of agility and be close to the action! We'll have a fun worker raffle plus lunch and snacks will be provided for all volunteers.
There will be 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 preregistered, you can still participate in run throughs. Contact Wendy Cerilli,firstname.lastname@example.org 518-692-8758, for more information.
On Saturday, Sunday, and Monday the building will be open for setup starting at 6:45am. Check in and measuring will be from 7-7:45 AM on Saturday, with judge's briefing at 7:45. On Sunday and Monday, check in will be from 7:15-7:30, with judge's briefing at 7:30. All dogs without a permanent height card must be measured before the first class of the day starts.
There will be no food vendor at this trial, but we’ll be getting subs on Saturday and Monday, and pizza on Sunday, for volunteers. If you’re not volunteering (that’s not many of you, I’m sure!) and want lunch, you can pay $5 and participate, but I recommend simply volunteering☺
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 xpens. 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.
The catalog and worker’s schedule will be available by Wednesday evening, December 26th on my website, www.agiledogs.net/trial-cpedec07.htm. I will only have a limited number of catalogs available at the show, and will be posting several copies of the worker’s schedule around the building, so if you’re interested please print your own catalog and help save a tree or two!
This trial is full to capacity (385 runs Saturday and Sunday, 370 runs on Monday), so your help in making the trial run smoothly by being ready to run when it's your turn and by helping to volunteer whenever you can, will help us all to finish in a timely manner each day and be able to get home safely and early on New Year's eve!
