We will allow dogs that have not had a chance to get wet to get in the pool in between splashes if time allows.

    Run order will be alphabetical Saturday and reverse alphabetical Sunday. I try to change the order around each event to make it fair.  If time allows, we will be offering AR/HD between splashes. We will also keep the splashes moving if we are ahead of schedule, if you cannot be there until the scheduled time of the splash not a problem, we will get your jumps in when you arrive if we have already finished the splash early. AR and HD will follow shortly after the 2PM splash so please be on time and ready.

    We will be allowing try its time permitting, competition jumps have priority over try its. We will try are best to make sure everyone that wants to get a try it does. Try its are $10 for 6 minutes.

    We will allow day of registration, so if you want to add more jumps you are more than welcome or if you know someone else that would like to come they may do so.

     You will be responsible for your own Blue qualifying ribbons. We will have the ribbons set out for you to pick up. Title ribbons will be available as soon as possible.

    Due to the neighbors, we can only have the speakers so load. We apologize for this and we will do our best to make sure everyone can hear.
