    Exclamation **** Red River Trial Postponed ****

    Red River Trial will be postponed until Dec 13-15. For cast this weekend calls for sleet and ice. Due to safety concerns it was decided to error on the side of safety and delay the trial. Please pass the word.

    Chris/Vicky,

    I'd like to leave this on the main forum in order to give those attending the trial a chance to see this update, sometimes things get lost in the Events forum.

    p.s. Mike got your text, was about to post a notice myself (saw Becky's FB post)

    I certainly understand the reasoning for this but what accommodations are being made for Qual and Derby dogs that are already signed up at the D/Q in Madisonville on the weekend of Dec. 14-15? There are many dogs signed up in both trials on the same weekend now - will Red River be refunding the entry fees for those dogs that now have a conflict?

    Thank you for the information!

    Approximately 20 of the 35 Qual dogs and 21 of the 35 Derby dogs will be in conflict...

    I would think that those who scratch would have to get their money back. But, It is a wise decision by the Red River FT Committee. They are in an ice storm now, and it will only get worse.

    Take a look at Event Info here. Red River was able to switch days of their Qual and Derby as to not conflict with PW as much as possible. RR Derby is now on Friday and the Q is on Saturday.
