Hello, Exhibitors!

Thank you for entering the August 2, 2013 USDAA Trial hosted by AgileDogs Agility Training.  This is your entry confirmation. With your help things will run smoothly; this is a small trial so if everyone helps out the day go faster.  We hope you will have fun this weekend. 

Please note: Please check your individual run information carefully.  You have until 6 pm on Monday, July 29th to email Kara Kingsbury aussiegirls77@hotmail.com with your move ups and/or corrections.  Any changes made after that date will incur a $10 charge per change.


Some important notes:

Sugar Bush Farm 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.           The Chittenden’s fenced in backyard area, including pond, will be available for swimming or playing during the trial, but please follow their rules for its use which will be announced in the general briefing in the morning.

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 or edges of clearings.

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


OVERNIGHT / rv PARKING:

If you have signed up to camp overnight at Sugar Bush Farm, make sure you contact Craig Chittenden, sugarbush761@aol.com, to let him know the size of your RV and if you’ll be using a generator or not.  If you’re staying in a tent or vehicle and indicated that on your form and have paid in full, you’re all set and do not need to contact him.  When you arrive, see Craig, who will escort you to your parking spot. 

Trial Format: 

One 100’ x 100’ ring will be used, and will be fully enclosed with entry/exit gates.  Electronic timing will be used.

DIRECTIONS TO TEST SITE
Sugar Bush Farm, 760 East Road, Stephentown, NY  12168

From the East: Take the Mass Pike to the end. Continue on I-90 to the next exit, B-3 in Canaan, NY. At the end of the ramp go right, 22 North. In New Lebanon, Route 20 and 22 run together for a short while. Make sure you stay on Route 22 by bearing left just before the a boarded-up gas station on the left. Continue approximately 4 miles to the traffic light in Stephentown where Routes 22 and 43 intersect. Follow Directions from the 22/43 Intersection below. 

From the West: Take I-90 East to Exit 11E - Route 20 East. Continue on Route 20 East until it joins Route 22 North (straight through the yellow blinking light in New Lebanon. In New Lebanon, Route 20 and 22 run together for a short while. Make sure you stay on Route 22 by bearing left just before the a boarded-up gas station on the left. Continue approximately 4 miles to the traffic light in Stephentown where Routes 22 and 43 intersect. Follow Directions from the 22/43 Intersection below. 

From the North: From Hoosick Falls you will take Route 22 South. Go through the towns of Berlin and North Stephentown.  Follow to the intersection of routes 22 and 43 in Stephentown.  Follow Directions from the 22/43 Intersection below. 

Directions from the 22/43 Intersection: Heading North on Route 22, you'll go up a hill where 22 becomes 2 lanes. It goes back down to one lane after you get to the top of the hill and you will pass a mobile home park on your right. Just after that there is a gray house with a small satellite dish. The road right next to that house is Giles Road or County Route 33.  Take that road, it takes a sharp right at a horse farm (you’ll see tan buildings and split rail fencing on the right). You will go over a little bridge, you'll see farm buildings and straight ahead on the right you will see the training building - white domed roof with tan walls and windows. There is a driveway marked by two metal fence posts just before the building; follow that driveway to the rings and parking.
