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.
If you have signed up to camp overnight at Sugar Bush Farm, make sure you contact Craig Chittenden, firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
One 100’ x 100’ ring will be used, and will be fully enclosed with entry/exit gates. Electronic timing will be used.
