Approximately 3 weeks before the Fair, we will email you a parking pass and a link to purchase your discounted admission tickets.

Payment for splashes will be taken at the event.

Prizes will be awarded  each day to the top teams!  At the end of each day, the First place dog in each Open Distance division and the First place dog in all Lap Distance divisions combined, will win $25 and a Jefferson County Fair ribbon. Second and Third place in each Open Distance division and the Second and Third place dog in all Lap Distance divisions combined will win a Jefferson County Fair Ribbon.  


In order to qualify to win prizes and ribbons, a dog must jump in 3 total splashes in a given day.  You can jump a minimum of 1 Air Retrieve splash and 2 Distance splashes, or a minimum of 3  Distance splashes in a given day. You may jump in all 4 splashes in a given day if you wish.   However, only Distance splash scores will entered in the bubble. The bubble will not be cumulative over the 3 day event, but will start over each day.  The dog's longest jump of the day will be recorded as their end score in the bubble.  A dog may only place in one division per day.  The placements in the bubble for the Jefferson County Fair are independent of NADD scoring.  You will still receive any NADD titles you have earned at the event.  


Prizes will be awarded shortly after the end of the last splash each day.  If you are not present to collect your prizes, you must make arrangements to have someone pick them up for you or pick them up at another event.  Just let us know when and where you would like to pick them up.
