Our judge was Bob Domfort - THANKS!
Monday, April 5, 2011 - Confirmations have gone out!
This is your final
confirmation for the TDAA trial to be held at Sugar Bush Farm in
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 8. 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.
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.
Volunteers: 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, courtesy of my Mom, Marge Stall. We will have copies of the worker schedule available at the show.
There will be no food vendor or photographer at this event.
Day of Show Entries: 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!
Add-on Class: In addition, if time permits, we will be offering an additional class at the end of the day on both Saturday and Sunday that will only cost $6 a run! Saturday the game will be FullHouse; Sunday the game will be Non-Traditional Jackpot. We’ll announce sign ups for this additional class sometime during the day each day.
Don’t forget FEO
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
Special Awards: There will be a couple of awards throughout the weekend. Among them are High Scoring Rescue Dog in Standard, and Perfect NQ day.
Our planned running order (subject to change at the trial):

Double or Nothing – all Games levels by height
