AKC Annual Agility Trial
Our 2023 KCKC AKC All Breed Agility Trial will be held Saturday, September 1 through Monday, September 3, 2023 at the Nicollet County Fairgrounds in St. Peter. We will begin preparing the fairgrounds on Friday, August 31, 2023.
Just like our May show, we will need plenty of volunteers: Please RSVP by AUGUST 27th.
We will also need your favorite potluck items to add to the meal for all of our hard working volunteers and judges. The club will be providing the main course, but salads, fruits, vegetables, and desserts are needed. Please bring them to the fairgrounds before 10AM on Saturday, September 1, 2023. Please contact Pat Hooey (507-386-7488) if you have any questions or if you would like to volunteer anything additional for hospitality.
Don’t forget to bring a lawn chair, and dress according to the weather.
Scribe–Responsible for watching the judge for the simple hand signals used to represent course faults.
Assistant Scribe–Responsible for recording the run time from the timer and keeping the scribe’s sheets in order for the scribe.
Timer–Responsible for starting the dogs when the judge is ready. Uses the electronic timers to time the run and quickly gives the run time to the assistant scribe.
Gate Steward–Responsible for making sure that the exhibitors & their dogs are ready at the starting line. Usually tries to keep 3 dogs ahead to move the trial along quickly. Informs the ring stewards when it is time to change the jump height (usuallyconsists of yelling “last dog this height”), keeps the dogs in catalog order or notifies the assistant scribe of any change in order.
Course Builder–Responsible for moving equipment into & around the ring according to the judge’s course plan. The course changes from Novice to Open to Excellent so equipment will need to be added and/or removed. After a course is set, the builders won’t be needed until a new course change, so these people would be excellent as equipment setters also.
Equipment Setter/Ring Steward–Responsible for adjusting the equipment during the runs. These people will need to bring chairs to sit on the edge of the ring and are expected to be ready to adjust anything that needs adjusting.
Runner–There are 2 different runners needed:
leash runners &scor ecard runners. The leash runner brings the dog’s leash from the starting gate to the finish gate. The scorecard runner takes the finished scorecards from the assistant scribe and brings them to the secretary.
Our trial is held Outside. Be ready for rain or heat and sun.
The trial will be held rain or shine!
