Hello, Everyone!  Thank you for entering the September 29-30, 2012 CPE trial hosted by AgileDogs Agility Training.  This is your entry confirmation. Your individual entry confirmation will come in a separate email.  Please be sure to look at it closely and let us know of any errors or move ups. 


Because of light entries, we are going to be using a one judge, 2 ring format.  Paul Stusalitus will be our judge.  If anyone wishes to drop out of the trial because of the judge change, please inform us ASAP.   We will be taking day of show entries, for $14 per run, from 7:00-7:30 each day, 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.


Check-in, Measuring, and Starting Times:


Saturday:         Check-in, measuring, and day of show entries will be from 7:00 – 7:30
                        General / Judges’ briefing 7:45; First dog on the line immediately after walk-throughs.

Sunday            Check-in, measuring, and day of show entries will be from 7:00 – 7: 30

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, jumpinbeandogs@hotmail.com .  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. 



Barry Rosen, www.barryrosenphoto.com, will be on site both days taking action shots and special request photos of our dogs!


During the trial, move-ups in Standard, Snooker and Jumpers 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, September 24th.  Any changes to entries made after that date will be subject to a $10 service change fee, regardless of who made the error.
