WELCOME STATEMENT

Welcome Field Trialers,

The grounds is a very large brome field with consistent cover just below the knee. The field has no obstacles or obstructions. There will be pheasants for the All-Age Stakes and pigeons for the Puppy Stake. Address is GPS friendly.

SAFETY:
All participants and spectators are required to wear at least one piece of blaze orange above the waist while in the field, an orange hat is not considered enough per the AKC & parent club. 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 guidelines as well as adopting some of the suggestions from the AKC. We will expect everyone to follow the guidelines. Since the State guidelines 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. We will have hand sanitizer available also.

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