Scent work:

10/9 (Sunday).    The Bouvier club is offering this event to be held off-site. 


Agility:

10/10 & 10/11/22 (Monday and Tuesday). 

The Bouvier club is bringing in a third-party to run the agility trials as they did in 2018.  This will be an all-breed event, but Giants would get second dibs after the Bouviers.


Carting:

10/11 & 10/12 (Tuesday and Wednesday).   The Bouvier club is sponsoring this and if space is available they will open it to Giants, as was done in 2014 and 2018. 

 

Obedience/Rally:

10/12, 10/13, & 10/14 (Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday).   The Basenji club is hosting all-breed OB/Rally trials on Wednesday.  Obedience will be limited to the regular classes (Novice, Open, and Utility) only due to judging limits.  Thursday and Friday events would be for Giants and Bouviers only.


Tracking:  To be determined.  Interest has been expressed for holding a Tracking Test (TDU and VST), but before a commitment can be made it has to be determined if there are enough folks that will be able to participate to pull it off.  Thanks to Teresa Higgins, Laura Feldt and their track layers, the GSCA offered tracking in 2018, but there were only two participants.  Putting on a tracking test requires a lot of effort and volunteers.  Ideally there would be 8 tracking teams entered to fill out the dance card.  Please let Sheila Lietz, Teresa Higgins or myself know if you can commit to entering a tracking test this October.  The Bouvier and Basenji show chairs have been asked to poll their members’ level of interest too.  If we go forward with tracking, it would be on Sunday October 9.  (A shoutout thanks to Teresa Higgins and Laura Feldt for offering to lead this effort if there is sufficient interest). 

Premiums for the various events listed above will be posted on the GSCA website as they become available.
