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 13th. 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.
Measuring and check-in will be from 8:15 to 8:45 a.m. on Saturday and 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.
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! We’ll announce sign ups for this additional class sometime during the day each day.
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.
