This is a reminder to those not on the PerformanceGSPs list
that the 2008 NSS Agility trial has opened for entries. We are doing a
random draw this year, and there are two opening periods – for the
all-breed trials on the weekends the initial draw is for GSPs only. With
a limit of 330 runs this initial opening period will not fill and this is your
chance to guarantee that you will get into all three trials. Your entry
must be received before 3/6 at Trial Secretary Karen Comb’s address to be
included in this draw. Starting on 3/7 through 4/10 will be a second
accumulation period of entries. This second draw does not give preference
to GSPs for the two all-breed trials and will be conducted if required on 4/10.
If any of the trials have not filled, the final closing date will be 4/18
after which you cannot withdraw from the trial unless you have a bitch come
into season. It is likely that we will not achieve 330 GSP only runs for
the Monday trial, so for that trial only you’d be likely to make the
entry up through the 4/18 closing date if you suddenly decide to come to the NSS
at the last minute. We predict the second draw period will close out the
two all breed trials. The trial itself will be conducted on 5/3, 5/4, and
5/5 – where Monday 5/5 will be the GSP-only trial.
The premium list is available on the GSPCA national web site
and is also available in the PerformanceGSPs files section.
Hopefully this will make sense to those that do agility –
