Confirmations have gone out!

Thank you for entering the AgileDogs March 2009 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. 

Wendy Cerilli will be holding run throughs Friday evening from 4-8 pm 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 pre-registered, you can still participate in run throughs.  Contact Wendy Cerilli, agilitytraining@yahoo.com or 518-692-8758, for more information.

On Saturday and Sunday, the site and building will open for setup starting at 6:45 AM.  Check in and measuring will be from 7-7:45 AM on Saturday, with judge's briefing at 7:45.  On Sunday, 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 weíll be getting subs on Saturday and pizza on Sunday for volunteers.  If youíre not volunteering (thatís not many of you, Iím sure!) and want lunch, you can pay $5 and participate, but I recommend simply volunteering J

Barry Rosen will be on site taking action photos of the dogs.  Check out his website at www.barryrosen.com.

There are a few rules that we're asking people to follow so that we can use High Goal Farm for all 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 x-pens.  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.

Your dog(s)' confirmations will be going out in a separate email.  Be sure to check for accuracy, and email me ASAP if you see any problem or mistake with your entry information. 

The catalog and workerís schedule will be available by Wednesday evening, March 25th, on the AgileDogs website. I will only have a limited number of catalogs available at the show, and will be posting several copies of the workerís schedule around the building, so if youíre interested please print your own catalog and help save a tree or two!

This trial is full to capacity (400 plus runs Saturday and Sunday), 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 Sunday evening.
