Just a heads up that the Rt. 896 bridge over the C&D canal will be closed this weekend. Also, portions of Chesapeake City road will be closed between the canal entrance and Rebel Ridge Farms. Follow Field Trial signs.
Please plan accordingly. Amateur will start at 8:00 a.m. at Rebel Ridge Farms; Open will start at 10:00 a.m. at the bowl at the canal; Qualifying will start 8:00 a.m. at the Mitchell Pond area of the canal.
Good luck to everyone.

Lois...I was just about to post this. In case the extra info help any one, here are some details on the bridge closure.
SUMMIT BRIDGE CLOSURE THIS WEEKEND!
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has rescheduled the closure of the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal Bridge (Summit Bridge). The bridge will be closed to traffic at 10 PM on Friday, April 26, until 5 AM, Monday, April 29, pending weather.
The closure is necessary to facilitate steel repairs and to accommodate the heavy machinery necessary to paint higher sections of the bridge and to replace several concrete barriers, called parapets, that separate traffic and provide protection at the edge of the outer lanes.
The detour is as follows:
Northbound U.S. Route 301 traffic will be detoured to Boyds Corner Road (DE Route 896), to U.S. Route 13 north, to DE Route 1 north, to DE Route 72 north, to U.S. Route 40 west, back to U.S. Route 301/DE Route 896.
Southbound U.S. Route 301/DE Route 896 traffic will be detoured to U.S. Route 40 east, to DE Route 72 south, to DE Route 1 south, to U.S. Route 13 south via Exit 148, to Boyds Corner Road (DE Route 896), back to U.S. Route 301.
Traffic will continue to be restricted to one-lane each way when the bridge is reopened Monday morning and for the remainder of the project.
