Welcome to our Tailgate Splash 2022!
COVID PLAN – Lincoln and Lancaster County remain under a Mask Mandate DHM inside public buildings. Our event is running as normal, but we continue to encourage physical distancing. Masks are strongly encouraged outside when physical distancing cannot be maintained.
- If you pre-register, you must pay for all splashes at the time of initial check in. If you choose to remove any splashes that were pre-registered it will count as a no-show for each dog entered in splashes dropped.
- You MUST arrive and register AT LEAST 30 minutes prior to your first splash of the event.
- Handlers meeting and Roll Call will be 15 minutes before each splash for all competitors. We will review any rules questions and set the running order, which will be posted on the whiteboard at the entrance to the dock.
- Friday Registration and open dock practice open at 1pm.
- Saturday and Sunday Registration and open dock practice open at 9am.
- Running Order will be alphabetical by dog’s name. Friday/Saturday are A to Z, Sunday is Z to A.
- Jami Campisi will be on site Saturday and Sunday offering massage for our canine competitors!
- Off Street parking in front of our building. Pool is in the back of the facility. Please stop at our front desk and let them know you are here for the dock diving event. They may do a quick check over your dog and then bring you to the pool area for check in and staging areas. All dogs entering our facility get a quick check for any visible contagious warts, fleas, or any injuries we need to be aware of. This is for the safety of all dogs entering our facility.
- Our primary crating area will be inside, down half a flight of stairs from the doors to the pool. This area is one of our indoor play parks which is air conditioned and has K9 Grass. There will be a small amount of crating space available outside in the yard near the pool, but as there is limited shade, we recommend utilizing our primary crating area inside. Assistance will be available if you need help getting your dog up and down the stairs due to health concerns.
- We have a fairly small parking lot, so easy-ups will be on a first-come, first-serve basis in the parking lot. Tents will be allowed in the pool area depending on available space.
- Indoor Restrooms available
- Photos will be posted in the week after the event on our Facebook page
- Lunch options will likely be available Saturday and Sunday.
- Please let us know of any concerns or questions you may have at the time they happen. We always want to solve any issues or concerns immediately and help make sure your weekend is the best possible competition experience for you and your dogs.
