Welcome to the February 15-17, 2019 AKC Agility trials.
This Trial is held under American Kennel Club Rules and Regulations.
National Western Stock Show Events Center
4655 Humboldt Street, Denver, Colorado 80216-2818
AGILITY TRIAL HOURS
Friday through Sunday: 7:00 a.m. – 30 minutes after the conclusion of last class
No Public Crating until Thursday, February 14th, 2019
All three rings will be run CONCURRENTLY
Results will be displayed on monitors near the secretary area. Additionally, there will be computers available to look-up all results by armband number. NCR copies of scribe sheets will NOT be available, except for the FAST classes, which will be available ringside. As always, you should view and confirm your results of your runs as quickly as possible. Any discrepancies can be viewed and resolved with the score table and/or judge, if identified early. Class results will be posted as quickly as possible after completion of the class/height group.
Because this trial is held concurrently with several other venues, as well as three agility rings, we are asking you to handle conflicts in the following manner. Please Check-in every morning for EVERY CLASS. There will be boards posted with all the Gate Sheets for that day. Only handlers with genuine conflicts will be allowed to move their dogs in the running order. If you anticipate a conflict in ANY class, you MUST mark your name with a “C”. If you do have a conflict with your run time that cannot be accommodated by moving within your height, if possible, you must walk/run in an earlier jump height, which allows the score table to close out classes. You must have permission from the Secretary, Chair, Gate Steward or Judge to move a dog to ANOTHER jump height.
If your conflict is only with your walkthrough, try to walk with an earlier group, so please plan ahead!
Ring 1, with the smaller classes, takes priority, and then Ring 2. Don’t panic, as long as the course is still available, we will work to get your runs in if you have marked your dog as a conflict.
You may only move your dog in the order IF you have a legitimate conflict. Separating multiple dogs is allowed only if you keep them in the original order if they are in the same height and, if possible, move the first dog up in the order. Exhibitors are solely responsible for having their dog at the ring when it is their turn to run. Judges are not required to wait for dogs. Be at the gate at least 4 dogs before your turn to go.
*** AT JUDGE’S OPTION, CLASSES WILL HAVE ADDITIONAL SPLIT WALK-THRU’S ***
SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE GIVEN DURING THE JUDGE’S BRIEFING.
B will run before A, followed by Preferred within each height group, unless otherwise noted.
All exhibitors will be allowed to walk the course, without dogs, before the start of their class.
The check-in process will be self-check-in for all handlers. No armbands will be provided. If you need to look up your armband number for the look-up computers, please use the catalog notebook provided at the check-in table. If you need to be measured, there will be measurement forms at check-in table to give to the VMO for measurement. Please have your information handy and complete the form before being measured.
Move-Up entries will be accepted for dogs that have completed a title after the closing date of February 1st, 2019. E-mail request for a move up is acceptable with return receipt verification from the secretary. Either a move up form or an e-mail must be completed and delivered to the Trial Secretary prior to 6:00p.m. February 11th, 2019. Move-up entries for Saturday or Sunday must be delivered to the Trial Secretary at the trial site within 30 minutes of the conclusion of judging of the class they are moving up from.
At closing, there were no wait-lists for any day.
