We Need You!
Volunteers needed for the Agility Invitational
December 13-15 in Orlando, FL
New this year - Exhibitors who want to volunteer but prefer not to course build can now sign up to help work at the information table, awards table, merchandise table (souvenirs), or in the volunteer/hospitality area. Just indicate your preference on the volunteer form!
Volunteers make this event possible and we couldn’t do it without you. Come be a part of something very special.
Not only do the volunteers get to watch the top agility dogs in each breed compete for top honors, they get free admission to the event (which also includes access to the Obedience Invitational, breed competition, meet-the-breed booths, dock dog diving, over 100 vendors, and more), free parking, lunch, snacks, a t-shirt, and more. Also, the Junior Agility Competition will be held on Friday morning and there will be a T2B titling class on Friday afternoon. More information at http://www.akc.org/events/agility/invitational/index.cfm
Volunteers are also needed to help set up on Thursday. This is also an option you can check on the form.
Signing up to volunteer is quick and easy. Just fill out the Volunteer Form on the web site and hit the “submit” button at the bottom of the form. Here is a link to the form: http://www.tfaforms.com/294588
Don’t delay though; the deadline for submitting forms is Friday, October 18th.
We appreciate your help!
The below paragraph from the posted Information Booklet has been revised (see section in red).
As further explanation, if an invited foreign team dog (FCI) makes its way into finals, an additional dog from that jump height shall be selected as well, thus increasing the number of dogs who compete during the finals round. This is a recommendation from the 2013 Agility Advisory Committee.
The dog selected will be the “next, eligible” in our list. We shall ignore the breed of the foreign dog, hence it is possible two of the same breed may be in finals for a jump height.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
The Agility Invitational will consist of Round #1 Master Standard, Round #2 Master JWW, Round #3 Master JWW, Round #4 Hybrid (16-18 obstacles, two contacts), Round #5 Finals (open only to top 57 dogs overall through 4 Rounds of competition). For the finals round only one dog from each breed within each jump height will be invited to participate in the finals. Exception: If an FCI-invited dog is selected to compete in finals, the next, eligible dog within that jump height shall also be selected, increasing the number of dogs competing in finals. (revised 10/1/13)
