BLOCK 1: 330pm-530pm (last name A-K)

BLOCK 2: 545pm-745pm (last name L-Z)


*The above link has the current blocks and waiver info








As of 6/29/20, Gov. Kemp has extended the current order which limits 'large gatherings' to 50 or less. Due to this we will be running this event in TWO time blocks each day (4pm and 6pm) to limit the # of bodies on the property during each block. To make things easier on all parties, the time blocks will be divided using your LAST NAME of the alphabet. 


CHECK IN for BLOCK 1 SATURDAY/SUNDAY: 330pm, splashes to start as soon as all parties have checked-in

CHECK IN for BLOCK 2 SATURDAY/SUNDAY: 545pm, splashes to start as soon as all parties have checked-in

AR will run "as is" for Friday PM


These blocks will be a bit different this time since this is a 'smaller' event --


- BLOCK 1 for Saturday & Sunday will be done via LAST NAMES A-K

- BLOCK 2 for Saturday & Sunday will be done via LAST NAMES L-Z


If you have a holder with a last name who is not in your time block, I would highly recommend seeking out individuals who are in your time block first who can hold for your dog. We will do our absolute best to accommodate those that need a specific person to hold their dog (please e-mail ahead of time!!!!), but we cannot make promises as we have other group classes and private lessons being held in the evenings that we have to account for. 


There will be NO "day of entries" but if you were looking to add additional splashes please e-mail me to request those if we get competitors who pull from this event ( I will get the blocks out listing competitors via last name for you all to see by July 10th if not sooner with the final draft posted after the event closes. Please bring a copy of your NADD/COVID & Brightside Waiver, payment will be Venmo or Check only (please refrain from paying until you check in).


As always we appreciate you for choosing The Brightside, we are looking forward to another chance to jump our dogs!!
