Welcome Field Trialers,

Grounds is a very large property consisting of brome grass located about 35 minutes from Alexandria. There will be pheasants for the All-Age Stakes and pigeons for the Puppy Stake. Address is GPS friendly.

All participants and spectators are required to wear at least one piece of blaze orange above the waist while in the field. Strongly recommend wearing safety glasses while in the field. No smoking is permitted on the grounds. ATV use on the grounds must be approved prior to use by the Field Trial Committee. A copy of the emergency procedures/disaster plan will be printed in the catalog.

We will be adhering to any State of Minnesota mandates as well as adopting some of the suggestions from the AKC, & we expect everyone to follow. Since the State mandates are ever changing, we will attempt to notify all participants in advance of the expectations. If masks are mandatory, we will have a limited number available for purchase, cash only. At this time, the State is requiring masks be used.

Thank you in advance for supporting the St. Croix Valley Spaniel Club!
