PCA Agility 2008
agility will again be on monday, april 21. our judge this year is dr. Sam banks. dr. banks kindly helped us out last year and judged the overflow entry. He was pleased to be able to come back this year and judge the entire trial. after all, what could be more fun than judging all those Poodles in agility?
last year, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of PCa and also the 10th anniversary of the PCa agility trial, we held a special maCh parade. This year the parade of performance titleholders will be held on Tuesday, after the obedience trial. our premium list is nearly done, and will be sent to the PCA web site as soon as it is finished. If you just can’t wait to get the paper copy in the mail, or might not be on the mailing list, you can find it on the web site, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use good old snail mail and send a note to Jan hopper, 15220 9th ave n., Plymouth, minnesota, 55447.
it’s hard to believe that our nationals will be here in a few short months. final preparations are being made as i write this. The obedience and rally com- petition will take place on Tuesday, april 22nd, 2008, at the Wicomico Civic Center in Salisbury, maryland. Please note that judging will start an hour earlier this year, at 9:00am, to make time for the performance pa- rade of titleholders later in the day. The judging panel is as follows:
mr. Kent delancy-utility b & open a mrs. nancy glabicki-open b mr. John landis-novice b mrs. nancy Withers-utility a & novice b mr. Jerry iermiero-all rally Classes
The non regular classes will be assigned after entries have closed. We offer pre novice, graduate novice, graduate open, versatility, veterans, brace, and team.
as usual we always need volunteers to help us run this trial. We will be giving our hard working volunteers a lunch and also having our ever popular volunteer worker raffle. If you plan on coming to watch and would be willing to help out (the very best seats for viewing are located just inside the ring gates!) let me know. See above for contact information.
Please plan to stay for the judges and exhibitors din- ner which will start immediately at the completion of judging right there at the Wicomico Center. Contact ann mandelbaum for ticket information, or look in the premium.
i look forward to meeting everyone of you at the great- est poodle show on earth!
april will be here before we know it (yikes!) we hope to see you at the trial.
