Deedra Prigel of Dee Prigel Photos was on site for much of the day on Sunday. Her pictures capture last weekend’s gorgeous weather, the lush color of an outdoor trial in the Mid-Atlantic, the picturesqueness of the site with its cornfield backdrop, and of course our dogs! Be sure to take a look 🙂
Because of SARS-COV-2, we will not be having printed coursemaps this weekend. Courses will be posted on this website each morning at 4am. There will be an official posted course at the site as well if you want to bring your smartphone/tablet to capture it there.

This site offers plenty of room to run your dog when you’re not in the ring as well as parking for cars, tent campers, and RV’ers. (Note: this is one of the three remaining OUTDOOR USDAA trials in this area and it occurs at a GREAT time of year at a very friendly RV site with electric hookups available.
Our judge is Mike Murphy.
Since in these COVID-19 times we have *no* idea what to expect entry-wise, we’re going with a simple, 1 judge, 1 ring format. However… if the entry pleasantly surprises us we can easily expand back into a 2 ring and even 2 judge format.
Make sure you review the revised trial procedures for COVID-19 avoidance so that you understand what we’ll all need to do to keep everyone safe.
Entry fees for the titling classes are the typical low cost of $14 per titling class. This trial also features qualifiers for 2 of the 4 tournaments for the 2021 World Cynosport Games (aka the USDAA Nationals) located who knows where in a country which hopefully has the SARS-COV-2 virus under control by then. Hey – we can all dream; come to our field of dreams and dream with us 🙂
As with all USDAA trials, entries are unlimited. Actually… that’s no longer true of all USDAA trials since the rule changes, but *this* one is unlimited 😊
All checks received have now shredded. A complete list of these checks can be found in the tab labelled Mid-Atlantic MADness March 2020 in this spreadsheet:
For those of you that included vouchers and coupons with your entry: these will not be physically returned. The above spreadsheet records those items to be used towards your next entry. At such time that we return to offering trials, we will post instructions as to how use those items on your entry form.
Thank you for your support (and your early entry ^_^) and we hope to see everyone alive and healthy and running agility in a few months.
