January and February practice schedule

This year's race meets and lure trials are coming up quickly!  Below, is our schedule for practices for January and February.  We will be bringing the two hole boxes with us.  The first practice will be held at the Frohning farm located on Tualco Loop Rd just south of Monroe.  Parking as usual behind the barn staying on the gravel only. Since we will have only three or four practices before the first race meet, they will be held unless there is torrential rain and the field isn't fit to run in.  If the practice has to be called off due to field conditions, I will have sent out an e-mail by 8:00 day of.

If anybody has questions or needs directions, drop me an e-mail.   March schedule will be out in another week or two.

January 24, Sunday, 11:00 February 6, Saturday, 11:00 February 20, Saturday, 11:00

Cost is the same as last year - $5.00 for the farmer and $2.00 per dog regardless how many runs.  All dogs get at least two runs, time permitting, more than two is usually possible.

Set up and tear down help is graciously accepted.  Anybody who would like to learn to run the lure or help with the lure operation, I'm pretty sure that David would be in seventh heaven! <g>

Practice is on for Thursday at 3:00.  It will be at the field behind the barn next to the Fish and Wildlife area.  But, please don't park at the Fish and Wildlife parking area as it is by permit only.  Directions as follows:
Either north from Duvall or south from Monroe, take the 203rd St. SE exit (goes west).  You will be driving thru the reformatory farms.  At the stop sign, turn right on Tualco Rd.  Turn left on Tualco Loop Rd.  The Frohning farm is the first house on the left.  Take the gravel road just past the house (left turn) and turn in behind the barn.  Please do not drive or park on the grass.  If you are coming from the north on Tualco Loop Rd. look for the tractor show sign in the yard and turn right on the gravel road.  Proceed to the barn.  Remember, there are no porta potties available.
We will not be bringing boxes as this is a lure coursing focus practice.
A reminder for those of you who are interested in and are ready for full up racing or need the use of the big boxes - there will be oval practice with the full up boxes at the Sowards (Goldendale) on the 4th and a race meet on the 5th.   Jo has also said that she can accomodate straight practices with the big boxes too.
