Hello, everyone!

This is your final confirmation for the TDAA trial to be held at Sugar Bush Farm in Stephentown, NY.  Your entry information will be coming in a separate email.  Please let me know ASAP if there are any errors.

The site will be open for setup starting at 8:00 a.m. on both days.  There will be no setup or check-in on Friday, April 9.  There is some crating space in the building; however, to maximize availability if it is cold outside, please stack crates as much as possible and no x-pens, please.  Remember that the building will be heated, if needed, to a balmy 55 degrees or so.

Measuring and check-in will be from 8:15 to 8:45 a.m. on Saturday, and from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m. on Sunday.  

Please note:  Per TDAA policy, if you did not include a copy of your dog’s permanent TDAA jump height card with your entry, you must present the card or a copy of it at check-in or the dog must be measured prior to running at this trial.  Please check your entry confirmation to determine if you must present the card or have the dog measured.

There will be a general briefing followed by obstacle familiarization immediately following check-in each day.  The judge’s briefing for the first class will take place immediately after this.

Thank you to all who volunteered to work!  Because TDAA trials are small, we need you all to help out.  We can’t do these trials without your help and, as thanks, we’ll have free snacks and lunch for everyone.

There will be no food vendor or photographer at this event.

A worker's schedule will be posted on the AgileDogs website by Thursday of this week.  We will have copies of the worker schedule available at the show as well.

We just received some new AgileDogs logo clothing, and it will be available for sale at the show site.

See you all there!  And, don't forget, we're offering day of show entries at $14 a run, so if you have another dog you'd like to run or if you have a friend with a dog that wants to come join the fun, bring them along!

Don’t forget FEO runs!  TDAA allows FEO entries for teams to re-run classes at the team’s competitive level or to run classes at a lower or higher level, but only after their competition run.  Didn’t like the way you handled that front cross in Standard?  See the trial secretary for an FEO run at the end of the class.  Figured out a new strategy for that point accumulation game that might earn more points?  See the trial secretary.  Think your Beginner dog is ready to tackle a Superior level Standard course?  You got it!  See the trial secretary!  FEO runs are a mere $8.

Our planned running order is:

Saturday:          Group Choice – all Games levels by height

(4/8/12/16)        Standard Run 1 – Beginner (B), Intermediate (I), Superior (S)

                        Standard Run 2 – S, I, B
