June 11, 2007 

Hello, Exhibitors!

Thank you for entering the June 16 and 17, 2007, CPE Trial hosted by AgileDogs Agility Training.  This is your entry confirmation. We have a total of 209 dogs entered for 735 runs on Saturday and 585 runs on Sunday.   

Please note:  if you decide to withdraw, please let us know as soon as possible so we may allow entries from our wait list. 

We thank everyone in advance for your help and support, and we hope you will have fun this weekend.  To help make the weekend go smoothly, please help whenever possible!

Some important notes:

Shatford 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.

  1. Bring your own chairs and shade.

3.       Wading pools and a water hose will be available for cooling your dogs.  There is also a creek running through the park.

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.

6.       A map of the park is posted on the AgileDogs website (www.agiledogs.net).


·         Perfect weekend rosettes will be awarded to teams achieving Q’s in all 9 runs.

Trial Format: 

Two 100’ x 100’ rings will be used.  Each class will be held in one ring, except Jumpers, which will be split between rings; lower levels (1, 2, 3, and S) will run in one ring and higher levels (4, 5 and C) will run in the other ring.  Electronic timing will be used in both rings. 

All walk-throughs will be timed at 7 minutes.  Please help us to run the trial as efficiently as possible so we can finish each day in a timely fashion.  Please notify your gate stewards of any conflicts between the two rings; all competitors and volunteers will be accommodated.

Check-in, Measuring, and Starting Times:

Friday:           Site available for set-up starting at 4:00 pm

                     Early check in and measuring will be from 5:30 – 7:00 pm

Saturday:       Check-in and measuring will be from 7:00 – 7:45

                     General / Judges’ briefing 7:45, 1st dog on the line in Ring 1:  8:00 AM, 1st dog on the line in Ring 2:  8:15 AM.

Sunday:         Check-in and measuring will be from 7:00 – 7:30

                     General / Judges’ briefing 7:30, 1st dog on the line in Ring 1: 7:45 AM, 1st dog on the line in Ring 2:  8:00 AM.

 There will be NO measuring of dogs AFTER the Judges Briefing begins each day – ALL DOGS WITHOUT A PERMANENT HEIGHT CARD MUST BE MEASURED before the Judges’ Briefing in order to show that day – THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS.


The volunteer schedule will be posted on the AgileDogs website the week before the trial.  Thanks to all who volunteered; more than 90% of the exhibitors have 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!

Directions to the Trial Site:
Park is located in New Lebanon; the street address is just north of 14755 Route 22. 

From the South: Take the New York State Thruway North to exit 21A, the "Berkshire Spur", and get off at exit B3 (Austerlitz/New Lebanon). * Follow signs for Route 22 North. Take Route 22 North for approximately 9 miles to the town of New Lebanon. At the red blinking light take a right to stay on Route 22 North. **About a mile later, take a left just before the Hess Gas Station to stay on Route 22 North; go 3/4 mile, past New Lebanon Central School.  You’ll see the park on the left.  Go past the park and take a left after the New Lebanon Town Hall onto Old Post Road.  Go 0.2 miles to the park entrance on the left. 

From the West: Take the New York State Thruway to exit 24, Albany. Stay on I-90 (this is a no-toll section) until exit 11E, which is Route 20 East.  Turn right onto 20 East, and follow it for approximately 17 miles; go straight through the blinking yellow light in New Lebanon.  Follow directions from ** above.

From the East: Take the Mass Turnpike to the New York State line, where it becomes the New York Thruway. Take the very first exit in New York, Exit B3 (Austerlitz/New Lebanon), and follow directions from * above.

From the North:  Take Route 22 South.  Go through the towns of Berlin and Stephentown.  1.8 miles after passing into Columbia County, take Old Post Road on the right (at the base of the hill).  Be careful, as the road comes up on you quickly.  Go 0.2 miles to the park entrance on the left.
