Other Notes

Welcome to the 2023 Pioneer Days Festival

presented by Cle Elum Downtown Association




The administration desk, board and dock will open one hour before the first competitive splash of the day. 

Open dock participants will be limited to 2 jumps or 2 minute per dog, whichever happens first.  We reserve the right to prioritize dry dogs or specialty disciplines or limit time allotment if necessary to allow as many dogs as possible the opportunity to participate in open dock practice.


We will offer "day-of" onsite registration, as well as Try Its as time permits. 

There will be 5 spaces per splash, in all three disciplines, held in reserve for this purpose.  We will begin selling these spaces on a first come, first served basis when registration opens until there is no space available.  We will continually assess our schedule and if we are able to open up more spaces throughout the day, it will be announced by the dock announcer and will be on a first come, first served basis as well, we will not have a waiting list.  


Hydro Dash and Air Retrieve competitors must be checked in 2 hours prior to the scheduled start of the splash and onsite 15 minutes before the scheduled start of the splash so they can attend the mandatory handler's meeting.

We will do our best to communicate any updates with our competitors throughout the competition in a timely manner, and we ask that you do the same for us and your fellow competitors


The dock diving community is made up of some of the most amazing people, so if you see a competitor who is in need of assistance, please offer to help them.  


As with everything since 2020, nothing is certain, except that we all want to play with our dogs.  So, we will be adhering to current local and national COVID requirements and restrictions.
