Winnegamie Dog Club – Agility Run Thrus
September 4th & October 2nd
Need: 2-3 Volunteers – Chelsea Wood ____________ & ______________ (somebody organizing outside the building, collecting money, and being the gate steward)
Chelsea Wood (and possibly a friend or two) will use hand sanitizer, unlock the building, and set the agility course. The agility course will be a modified course with no table and 1-3 contacts. Gates & guidewires will not be an option for the weave poles.
The running order will be posted outside. Height order will be established ahead of time.
A designated person (Marie Murphy?) will collect money outside.
Participants will crate out of their cars and agree to maintain safe distancing in the parking lot.
The gates to the yard will be open and dogs will be on leash at all times outside. No poop scoop will be used – Use a bag.
A designated person will be a gate steward outside. Everybody must use hand sanitizer before entering the building. Everybody will agree to wear a mask inside.
One person will be in the ring running (Chelsea Wood will be in the building, wearing a mask at all times – She will set all bars and she will time participants for 2 minutes).
The next person running will stand in a designated space just inside the door. This person is responsible for telling Chelsea their jump height.
The person running their dog in the ring will have 2 mins. And then they will exit out the secondary door and the next person can enter the ring. The handler will be responsible for their own “leash running” but the course design will help keep that efficient. The gate steward will watch when somebody exits so that they can send in the next participant to the waiting spot.
Running Order will be small to tall (in September, then in reverse for October). Each height will run, then run their second run again. Heights will be combined if there are 3 or less dogs.
Example Running Order – Piper (8”), Bond (8”), Syd (8”), Cruzr (8”), Piper, Bond, Syd, Cruzr, Kizzie (12”), Summer (16”), Cali (16”), Aspen (16”), Kizzie, Summer, Cali, Aspen, Zima (20”), Trail Mix (20”), Sam (20”), Liddy (20”), Spirit (24”), Zima, Trail Mix, Sam, Liddy, Spirit
An optional walk thru will be available between 6-6:30pm, participants must wear a mask the entire time they are inside the building. Paper copies of the course will be available outside the building – the gate steward will hand these out after sanitizing their hands.
Bathrooms will be available as needed – Person must wear a mask inside the building. They should wait to enter until there is not somebody in the waiting spot (the gate steward will help with this)
The front of the building will not be used, but doors will be open.
