Sylvia indicated the agility information is out and today the conformation schedule is on the Jim Rau website. Unfortunately, we won't be bringing Onyx this time.

I don't want to miss any of the forum dogs' competition. Please let us know who will be doing what, when, and your armband number (if you have it) so we can cheer each other on!

Hi,

Rosey and Solo will compete in agility (Thurs and Friday). Solo will compete in obedience (Sat and Sun). Rosey will compete in obedience on Sat only. The obedience classes start at 9:00 AM each day. Solo will go in about 9:15 on Saturday and at 9:00 on Sunday. I estimate Rosey will go in about 9:45 on Saturday.


Agility starts at 8:00 AM on Thursday and Friday. Unlike conformation classes that have rather definite start times for each class, agility classes just continue one after another.
Agility has 4 different events (FAST, Standard, T2B (Time to Beat) and Jumpers). The events have 2-3 different height levels. And most events have 3 different competition levels. So the only reliable guess as to when a dog is going to run is for the classes that start first thing in the morning. FAST is the first class to run and it starts with the excellent level and 12" height -- which is Rosey's class. Solo is in the next class, FAST, Excellent, 16" height.
In FAST, Rosey will be running at about 8:03 and Solo will run about 8:10 AM. Rosey will also compete in Excellent 12" Standard and Jumpers. Solo will compete in Excellent 16" Standard, Jumpers, and Time to Beat. Those run will occur throughout the morning.

Gee, and I thought I had a hard time understanding when you talk about their runs :lol2
I think I am going to have to map out a calendar for the weekend.

I can't wait to watch them in action!

Star is running in agility on Thursday and Friday. We are in ExcA FAST which is the very first class on Thursday and Friday mornings which starts at 8:00 a.m. She is in Open Standard, Time 2 Beat and Open Jumpers. Star jumps 12" like most cockers in this trial.

If you want to really see Star in action be there for the FAST run that is her ultimate favorite! (She can pretty much do whatever she wants except for in the distance section and that makes her very happy!

I don't know, Sally, she is still fast but I'm not sure about much better, she is still wild and still a Ms. Know it All so may take extra obstacles. She likes those "extra credit" points. We are in harder classes now so more is expected than when we were Novice.

I will be over at the Obedience ring with Harley.....same times as Colleen, so if you see a Red and White boy being a clown, that's me :roll I am surprised that the numbers are so few this year in Obedience and Rally...must be a sign of the economy.

I'm not sure it is the economy as much as lack of encouragement by breeders to find/notify their puppy buyers about cocker nationals and the classes that are appropriate for newbies. I urged ASC to add Beginner Novice Obedience to the July show and that class has one of the largest entries. What surprised me is the big drop-off in entries on Sunday :dk . Are you the other Open A dog on Sunday?

Cocker breeders don't really seem to support Obedience/Rally or even Agility to much. I feel like we the red-headed step child in most cases. One of the Indiana cocker clubs shut down rather than let performance people in.

If you have to be back at work on Monday morning and travel any distance, Sundays are difficult. (especially if you draw a late class) We are only 3-4 hour from St. Louis, so hopefully we can do both next year.

Hope everyone is having great success and a great time in Sturbridge!

Good Luck everyone. I wish I could see your kids in action. I don't know anything about showing or agility/obedience etc but I think it would be fun to watch.

I posted videos of Star's runs on the Performance section so that all who are not here can feel as if you are, minus the horrendous heat that we are experiencing.
