I apologize for lack of practices in June, but with a new litter of puppies due the week following practice, we won't be going anywhere for awhile. However, Cascade Coursing Club is having two practices in June. Please check their web site or the ASFA Region 1 calendar for further information..
Practice will begin at 11:00 and run until everybody's had at least two runs. Please remember that all participants and any guests will be signing an indemnity agreement. We will be starting over for the new practice year. We ask that you bring crates with to confine your dogs except during warm up, running, and cool down. Appropriate collars for your dogs while being walked are martingales (when pulled up tight the rings should be an inch or two apart) or choke collars (if you have a choke collar and don't know how to properly fit it, hollar and I will show you). Poop bags and water are a necessity. Anything that comes in with you goes out with you. There are no garbage facilities at the field. However there is a bathroom for the humans! I will e-mail a reminder to everybody mid week prior to practice. Be sure to check your e-mail morning of. If the weather does not cooperate or David has to work the weekend, I will have an e-mail out by 8:00 the morning of the practice. Cost is the same as last year. $5.00 for the owner of the field and $2.00 per dog. Minimum two practice runs, with the possibility of three or four dependent upon how many dogs show up.
Practices will be held at the Cascade Family Fliers field south of Snohomish. One last thing, my phone number is 425-293-3776. Please don’t use the number on the Cascade Family Fliers website. That goes directly to the field owner, Mark. I’m quite active on my computer. If you e-mail me with questions, almost for sure, I will be back to you within a day if not sooner.
As usual, I will remind everybody mid-week prior and if there is to be a cancellation I will let everybody know by the latest 8:00 day of.
