WELCOME STATEMENT

Welcome to our 31th Annual AKC Licensed English Springer Spaniel Field Trial.

To all dog handlers planning to enter the 2020 ESS field trial of Long Island. These are unique times we find ourselves in and as such this trial will be like no other trial we have run before. The following rules for the trial may seem like an inconvenience to some but we hope that 2020 will be the only time we have to resort to this unique way of conducting our trial and thus return to “the old normal” sooner than later.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the following field trial guidelines will be in effect to provide as much safety as possible with the understanding that there can never be a 100% guarantee of safety. Each person who is considering entering the trial must review the safety protocols that are listed below and decide if he/she is willing to accept the risk.
Link to AKC Suggested COVID19 Practices

Please bring the following with you to the trial:
1. Masks/face covering, at least 2 for each day.
2. Hand sanitizer.
3. Disinfect wipes.
4. Disposable gloves if needed
5. Any other PPE you might use to feel safe at the trial.
6. Food and drink.

There will be a MAXIMUM OF 50 PEOPLE allowed at the trial each day. This includes, guns, judges, bird planters, field trial committee, marshals and any other officials such as AKC representatives, handlers and their helpers.

As such, entries will be CAPPED at 38 entries (people not dogs) and will be on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE determined by entering on Huntsecretary.com

Unfortunately we ask that NO OTHER GUESTS OR OBSERVERS be permitted at the trial or trial grounds.

Masks/face covering must be worn AT ALL TIMES WHILE IN THE FIELD with the exception of while running your dog. If you don't have a mask, one will be provided for you.

Handlers will refrain from turning to face the judge to speak to them once you have removed your mask. Masks/face coverings may be removed once you HAVE LEFT the gallery area or at the line before casting off your dog.

For their own safety, Judges are encouraged to wear a mask/face covering when a minimum of a 6-foot distance cannot be maintained.

When handing the retrieve to the judge, just put it behind your back, they will take it and put it in the shaggers basket, who will have their back to the judge, and will then return to their position, at least six feet behind them.

Guns have the option of wearing a mask/face covering while shooting if they prefer but MUST WEAR a mask/face covering while in the field and not shooting.

We ask that everyone keep a minimum of approx. 6’ social distance AT ALL TIMES whenever possible. Please do not congregate in the parking area by your cars.

If you have multiple dogs entered you should bring an assistant to bring your dogs out to hold your dogs.
As always, Judges may not “tap to send”, they may use verbal commands.

Judge's instructions and Field Trial instructions will be available the day of the trial or will be broadcast over the radio. This way we can eliminate the morning meeting each day as well as any last minute changes that might need to be put in place due to NYS COVID-19 guideline updates.

Entries are being accepted on huntsecretary.com in which these instructions will be contained in the premium as well as a waiver, in addition to the standard trial waiver and a questionnaire which will be filled out and signed the day of the trial and given to you with your catalog and running order. All handler support people are required to complete a waiver and questionnaire.

If for any reason you feel you have been exposed to the virus, or feel sick in any way. Please stay home. We will gladly refund your money. Please see refund policy for further information.

If, after the trial, you test positive for Covid-19, you will notify the ESSCLI Field Trial chairman or trial secretary as soon as possible.
