  • Judging will be suspended from 12pm to 1pm for the agility demonstration.
  • Numbers and pass out stamps will be issued on entry.
  • Please do not enter the assembly area until the previous group has vacated and your group is called. There is ample time between groups.
  • Dogs are not permitted in the club house or canteen at any time.

Trolley space and gazebos:

  • Gazebos are not permitted in front of sheds 10 and 11.
