August 5 - a special note from Jeff Boyer, trial chair:
"
Hi, Exhibitors (makes you feel like you're an "artiste" displaying your work in a gallery, huh?)
 
This is a small trial with a small number of competitors, so we will need all hands on deck to keep things running smoothly and efficiently.  To make things work best, we will have everyone sign up for what classes and what jobs they would like to work during the trial.  The signup sheets will be posted in the pavilion each day.  We will be issuing $2 coupons good toward the entry fees for a future AgileDogs trial for each class that you work.  We will also have a last class raffle each day.
 
Our Chief Ring Stewards will be Cassi Isachsen and Lisa Norris.  Don't make them come looking for you.
 
Thanks in advance for all of your help in making this a successful trial.
 
Jeff Boyer
Trial Chair
 
Debbie Wlodarski
Trial Secretary"



August 3
Confirmations have gone out!

Hello, Exhibitors!

Thank you for entering the August 6 through 8, 2010,
 USDAA Trial hosted by AgileDogs Agility Training.  This is your final entry confirmation.  With your help things will run smoothly and our days will not be long.  We hope you will have fun this weekend.  To help make the weekend go smoothly, please help whenever possible! 

Some important notes:

JUDGE CHANGES:

Because the number of entries is lower than expected, we have decided to go with a two-ring, one judge format.  Jean MacKenzie will judge all classes on Friday, and Dave Hanson will judge all classes on Saturday and Sunday.  To keep things moving, the classes originally scheduled to be judged by Greg Beck will be built in one ring, while those designed by Dave will be built and run in the other ring.

Exhibitors are reminded that if they take training classes with Ms. MacKenzie, they are not allowed to run in the additional trial classes she will be judging due to this change if they were in those training classes within 10 days prior to this event.


CORRECTIONS AND CHANGES:

PLEASE double check your entry information below carefully! Corrections and changes must be sent to honeysampson@yahoo.com by noon, Wednesday, August 4, 2010.  Corrections made after August 4th will be subject to a $5 change fee, no matter whose mistake it is. 

EAGLE MILLS FUN PARK DETAILS:

1.   It is absolutely required that you pick up after your dog.  Failure to do so will result in being excused from the trial.

2.   Bring your own chairs and shade.

3.   There is a creek and hiking trail on the park grounds, as well as a pond.

4.   Remember that ticks abound in this area, so be sure to check your dogs for ticks, especially if you walk them in the woods.

5.     Cars must be parked in designated areas, and may not be driven around the rings after the general briefing each day.

TRIAL FORMAT: 

Two 100’ x 100’ rings will be used.   We will alternate between rings.  Conflicts are inevitable, but we will make sure you never miss a run, so don't panic!  Every conflict will be accommodated as long as you tell the gate stewards that you have a conflict.  Electronic timing will be used in both rings. 

CHECK-IN, MEASURING, AND STARTING TIMES:

Show Site Opens Friday at 12:00 PM.  Saturday and Sunday, the site opens at 6:30 AM.

Volunteers:

The volunteer schedule will be posted on the AgileDogs website on Wednesday night before the trial.  Thanks to all who volunteered!

 

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 you didn't sign up to work and are interested in helping, we'd love to add you to our volunteer list!  Please contact Jeff Boyer at jeff@agiledogs.net if you would like to volunteer.  Also, if you're interested in helping out either with setup on Friday morning or takedown on Sunday afternoon, we'll be giving each person that helps us a special thank-you gift.  Contact Jeff if you can help out in this capacity.

Vendors:

·         Food Our food vendor will be Eagle Mills Cider Mill, providing breakfast and lunch.
