Our first official online trial – courses published and entries open-8-22 January 2021. Judging 23/24 January!

‘TRIAL TDR® TRIAL’ ON 29TH NOVEMBER AT ELHAM VILLAGE HALL, KENT 

Hi everyone! We hope you are all staying safe and keeping well. 

Our judges have been discussing how best to get live trials back under way and we have come up with the following idea for a ‘Trial’ Trial to see how it works. 

Jacky and Sue will be holding a small trial running as follows: 

1 hour time slots for 4 people (1 in, 1 out policy) 

eg: 9-10am would have Bob at 9, Jo at 9:15, Ken at 9:30 and Mary at 9:45 (made up names!) 

So Bob will arrive, walk his dog in designated area, and register his attendance with assistant in car park, then Bob and his dog will go into the hall or the outside ring via the “IN” door and once done will exit via the “out” door and leave. 

By then Jo will have done the same and be ready to be called at her time slot…. and so on… (so Bob, jo, Ken and Mary would have been asked to arrive at 9am to be gone at 10 when the next hours group arrive)   

Then each competitor comes in at allotted time for their competition. They come in one door, exit the other and go home. All rosettes due will be awarded at the end of each round. 

Competitors will be asked to wait in their cars until their allotted time slot – there will be a helper in the carpark with strict instructions for everyone’s safety so please do not argue or try to bend the rules. Safety is our number one priority. 

There will be a designated exercise area for dogs and 1 toilet for humans (again 1 in 1 out) 

This trial will be Covid secure and competitors will be expected to bring their own equipment, poo bags, water bowl etc.   

Competitors will be asked to wear masks at all times, unless in their car and use sanitizers (preferably bring your own but there will be available stations) 

There will be hand wash and sanitizers available on site too. 

Please remember it’s YOUR responsibility to look after your dog’s and your own health and safety. 

THIS TRIAL IS FOR KENT PEOPLE ONLY. IF YOU ARE VULNERABLE IN ANY WAY PLEASE DO NOT CONSIDER APPLYING FOR ENTRY. 

PLEASE CONTACT JACKY OR SUE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING.
