Event Notes

  • A NADD Registration Number is required to enter, purchase here for $35.00.
  • Splashes include up to four minutes on the dock for one optional practice jump and two judged jumps. You must inform the judge prior to your jump if you want it to be considered a "practice jump".
  • This event is being run by a NADD mobile dock. Info on parking and other event site info can be found on the event description or on our social media page.
  • This event is an Open Splash event. This is done at Portable Dock trials and other shows that have timing conflicts with other dog events. The time for each splash for the day will be set such as 9am for example for all the splashes. You have between the posted start time and end time (either before AR starts or the end of the last day, usually 3pm) to complete your splashes for the day. When you check in you will be handed “Splash Cards” for each splash that you pay for. When you are ready to jump during the day, hand a splash card to the wrangler to get put into the running order. It is the handler's responsibility to be sure to be present it before their turn to jump. Please be aware that at many events, the running order board fills very quickly and early in the day.
  • Please Note: You must pay for all pre registered splashes at time of check-in. Any splashes not paid for will be put back into the event's on-site registration availability list.
  • Each distance jumping Splash allows 2 judged jumps, back to back. The longest jump of them will be your Qualifying Score.
  • You can earn a Diving Dog Title at this event. You must have five Qualifying Scores within a Division. NADD titles are recognized by the AKC and CKC through their recognition programs. View their applications here (AKC) and here (CKC).
  • Please read the official NADD Rules before you attend the Trial.

Try-its at this event

  • Try-its will be allowed as space permits and during Splashes if no competitors are waiting to jump. Try-its cost $10.00 for two Try-it tickets. These tickets may be used on any day of the competition.
  • AS TIME ALLOWS: Each competing dog will get one Try-it ticket per day that they are entered, to use for an extra practice round. The handler must request this ticket at check-in. Each dog will be given three minutes on the dock. If a Try-it or competing dog wishes to have more time, they may purchase additional tickets as timing allows.

Other Notes

COVID Policy  - We will be following all local covid guidelines set forth by the State of VA. As these guidelines change frequently we will update competitors when the event pre-registration closes as to what the current guidelines are. 

Thursday  - Sunday, June 10-13
Thursday check in starts at 10am.

Friday check-in & practice starts at 8:30 am.
Friday & Saturday In addition to the late afternoon Hydrodash or AR, we will offer a  block of time at noon for either HydroDash or AR (depending on what's running that day) Sign up for that block will open each morning and be first come first serve.

Saturday and Sunday - Check in and practice is at 8am

Sunday - HydroDash will start at 8:30am or when everyone is checked in. We will start distance as soon as HD is finished (even if before 9am)

*** We will finish early on Sunday.  You must have been present and turned in your jump cards by 1PM to jump.

 

Typically Competitors must be check in and have cards turned in no later then 2 hrs before the end of distance jumping for the day. 

 

Please note that if any pre-entries that are not paid for on your first day entered they will be removed from the splash and will be sold as day-of entry price even if you want to pay for them later.

We will offer on-site registration as long we have spaces in our splashes available, as well as Try-Its as time allows.

 

Day of registrations will be allowed each day, on the day you wish to jump until there is no space. Air Retrieve will have day of spots available, but we will not have a waiting list once pre-registration fills. All spots are on a first come basis, as this is the fairest for everyone.



HOW IT WORKS:

When you arrive and get settled, come check in at the admin table (best without your dog) , usually under a pink Eukanuba tent, near the dock and pool.  Share a warm greeting and your dog(s) name and what you need (either checking in or needing to sign up) , then sign your waiver(s).    You will get a total for your jumps, etc, then pay (cash, check, credit, paypal) , and then receive your jump cards (HD and AR do not get cards).   Probably best to head right to the board and let the board boss know when and how you'd like to jump (pick your times and spacing between jumps/dogs).
Once on the board, keep an eye and an ear out for your turn as it can always shift a little earlier or later than you scheduled.  If you miss your turn within 30 mins we can usually get you right in but any longer and you may end up moving to later in the day. Just know we will do everything we can to accommodate your jump needs.

 

* Maximum of 12 distance splashes per event per dog.
