The 2015 Pipedream Farm Sheepdog Trial will be Sept 18-20 (Fri-Sun)

 

Fri & Sat will each have one open class

Sun will have one class each of Ranch, ProNovice, and Novice Novice

If we have enough Nursery dogs there will be 2 Nursery classes (days tbd).

 

Our Judge this year will be Werner Reitboeck from Ontario

 

Peggy Simpson and Todd Layfield will again be hosting a handlers' dinner (wonderful home cooked food) at their home (15-20min for the trial field)

 

Camping is allowed, no hook-ups

If you have a "big rig" (large 5th wheel, large class A) call for additional parking information

If you want me, I'd love to help on Friday and Saturday. I might be able to help on Thursday.

Let me know if there's anything I can do to help! (it'd be fun to play with your new zero-turn mower if that's what's useful, for example, though I think I'll bring my safety goggles to keep bugs out of my eyes!)

I guess I could share mowing duties with you, Lynn, only because it's you!

Definitely need sunglasses or other protective eyewear ;)

Seriously, this is a super fun trial for anyone interested in joining us!

Wish I could come run a youngster, but that's our sisters' weekend out! I'll aim for next year.

Em, you're on!!! (Assuming Mark and Renee trust me to drive their new zero-turn mower, that is!). I'll bring my safety glasses with the built-in bifocals needed by old coots such as myself. Brought my entry form to the conference - now just need to find time to mail it!

We have opened up an additional parking/camping area.  It is on the right just inside our drive.  The area is flat but a bit farther form the trial field.  The camping/parking are we have been using is still available.  Call us if you have any questions before you come.  I will be on site Thursday if you would like me to show you your options before coming down our narrow drive.
