Drills and Skills Continued and Applied at the Line for Marks
Depending on who comes, we can introduce some new lining drills and diversion drills for those dogs who know a “back” pile. We will divide into 2 groups, most likely according to handler experience/knowledge.
Last chance to get some personal help on managing (turning/cuing) your dogs on the line before flyer days!
Please RSVP to Debbie Tandoc no later than 3 days prior to event to ensure enough equipment is available. All information for the event will be e-mailed upon receipt of RSVP.

This is a Norcal Golden Retriever Club training day, so there are no guest fees for Denverton CRTA. However, if you are not a Denverton CRTA member, you will need to sign a hold-harmless form. (If you are a member, but have not signed a form this year, you will also need to sign one.) You will find the hold harmless form here.
Please read the first page AND print out the last page, sign and bring with you. We also have the regular sign in sheet and I will have a separate one for us with everyone’s name on it. This separate sign in page is at the kiosk, please find your name on the sign in form, and leave your hold harmless on the clip board behind the sign-in form. If you are a CRTA member, please still sign in on the separate sign-in sheet with your name on it.
Please stay on the gravel road and do NOT try to drive around puddles on the side of the road. If you get stuck in the mud and have to have a tow truck come, it is very, very, very expensive and AAA will not come out. In addition, you are responsible for costs to repair any damage to the grounds due to your vehicle.
