March BTWW at Argus update

always working on the computer

My continued struggle with technology reaches a new low as some exhibitors—who have never had a problem in the past—were not receiving their confirmation emails nor my direct reply to their emails. Turns out that when we renewed my Office 365 it hijacked my email settings at my web host. Hopefully it is fixed now—I had to wait 48 hours to be sure the (hold on for tech jargon) DNS was completely repopulated.

Because I don’t know how long this has been going on I am sending this message to everyone in my agility and obedience trial databases AND Facebook AND my newsletter folks. Apologies for the repeats but I could not think of any other way to reach folks.

If I have processed you for the March BTCWW all breed AKC agility trial you will be getting another (or maybe the first to actually reach you) email with confirmation attached.

Maybe you would like to join us for the March trial at Argus Ranch in Auburn WA?? Here is a direct link to the Premium

Thank you for your patience Theresa

Hey gang I have posted a corrected premium for the BTCWW all breed agility trial that is held in Elma WA January 1, 2 & 3 2016.

Here is the direct link to the Corrected Premium which has Premier added to the entry form and a few things changed to match AKC’s requirements. They have a standard premium they want us to use to be sure that  admin information is consistent.

The trial closes 12/18 so don’t wait to send in your entry–we don’t cash checks until after closing–and you don’t want to be thinking about this as you are winging your way to  AKC Invitational or holiday gatherings!! You can always use the your MY AKC account at AKC.org to sign up on line. I should have those entries caught up later today

Travel safe and dry!

The popular $5 Redo Runs will be available for every class!

You must be entered in the regular run to be eligible to pay $5 to redo the run again as ‘Not For Competition’ at the end of the class. Sign up for this is on the day of the trial.

If you have not tried UKI you are missing THE most competitor friendly venue.

Bitches in season are allowed to run at the end of each class.  See page 5 of premium for more details. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY – You can enter your first trial without registering. NFC OPTION- Any run can be made ‘Not for Competition’! Use entire course time for training contacts, weaves, start lines or other things, with any non-audible training aid. No food. FRIENDLY JUMP HEIGHT OPTIONS- Any class can be done with Select Jump Height option. No spreads and your dog jumps one height lower. SPEED STAKES PROGRAM- Want to do just jumps and tunnels with your dog? This is the perfect program for any dog that is young, undergoing rehab, unmotivated on standard courses, or needs work at keeping up bars at high speeds. INTERNATIONAL STYLE COURSE DESIGN- Want to try something a little bit different? UKI courses are designed with a touch of the European flair. They are always fun but just a bit more interesting.

Elma New Year’s agility trial is now open!!

it is that time again–Boston @ Elma hosting the all breed AKC agility trial

Trial-Agility-AKC BTCWW all breed agility trial opened 10/9 and closes 12/18. Two Rings indoors on dirt Two Judges Three Days.

You may enter online at www.akc.org using your “My AKC” account or download the premium from site under the Upcoming Events page

I am your trial secretary so email me at Theresa@K9EventsNW.com with BTCWW NEW YEARS in the subject line as I will have multiple trials open.

We are offering all levels all three days but remember for this trial the club likes Saturday and Sunday to have FAST and T2B run first so we have a little time in case the roads are less than perfect (they say a mild wet winter but who knows three months down the road).

Please note!! For this event we have first dog on the line Friday at 10am. That is  AFTER we build the rings and set up the trial so plan on arriving a little early to help get set up. It is just too expensive for the club to pay for Thursday set up—it is not just the facility it is also the extra lodging and such.
