NOTE: we will NOT be offering any runs on Sunday. This is a Friday/Saturday only trial.

Volunteers – we will be asking for volunteers to help run the trial.  We do rely on our members but need help from everyone to ensure the trial runs smoothly and in a timely fashion. We ask that handlers watch the running order and be prepared for their turn at the post.  We will have an "on deck" holding area for you and your dog so it will be easy for everyone to see where we are in the running order. Please make use of this holding area.

Camping/RV information: There will be camping on the site of the trial. There are no hook-ups at this rural farm setting.
