Hello, Exhibitors!

Thank you for entering the Fathers Day weekend 2010 CPE Trial hosted by AgileDogs Agility Training.  This is your entry confirmation. Your entry confirmation will come in a separate email Monday evening.  Please to be sure to look at it closely and let me know of any errors or move ups.  We have a total of 163 dogs entered for 665 runs on Saturday and 633 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.



Perfect weekend rosettes will be awarded to teams achieving Q’s in all 8 runs.


Run Throughs Friday Afternoon:


We will have run throughs on a CPE standard course, 2 levels nested, $5 a run; each dog will get 2 minutes in the ring.  Toys and treats can 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 4pm, first dog on the line at 4:30.  We'll rotate through jump heights and have subsequent walk throughs.

NOTE: if you're interested in helping out (setting bars, being a gate steward, etc), please contact me.  Helpers get 2 free runs with one dog.


Check-in, Measuring, and Starting Times:

Only a few copies of the run catalog will be available at the trial.  The catalog will be available for download and printing on Tuesday 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.

OTHER VENDORS: Becky Therian, canine massage therapist, www.theanimaltouch.com


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 the end of day on Monday, June 14th.  Any changes to entries made after that date will be subject to a $5 service change fee.
