Hi Jamboree Attendees!
I just wanted to let you all know that there will be a waiver to sign that will be available in hardcopy when you arrive. You will also receive one at in your email address, that's tied to your RTF account.
I'm very pleased 1) that Nancy and Bart Pals have agreed to allow the attendees to use their property for this training day.
2) I also want to thank Stan Bullock very much for taking the initiative to not only suggest the concept, but also take the ball and run with it, organizing this fun training day.
I'm glad that the RTF resource has been a mechanism through which some folks can meet, do a little training, and have some fun. Please note, this is NOT a sanctioned event of any kind with any registry. This is NOT a seminar, or a workshop. This is NOT a competition. It is a fun training day and we are there to have fun training the dog at the line at that moment. We are not there to compare one dog against any others, nor to "test" any dog.
It is fun training...period, with a social spin. Meet a new friend or two, have a laugh or two, and SAFELY enjoy a training day together.
Special thanks to David Carrington and AVERY. We have been given the opportunity to distribute to a few folks, the newest version of the Avery hexabumper. They have the new Avery Sporting dog logo, and the plasticizer chemistry has been adjusted to make them more flexible and perhaps even more cold temperature forgiving in times of cold induced brittleness. (a fact of polymer chemistry) I think a recent gripe on the product review board may have assisted in triggering this.
We have a few other Avery items also to pass out to participants in the event.
Our legal advisor has suggested that we make it clear now, in advance, that a waiver signature will be a condition of participation. This way, if anyone has issue, they know now rather than after taking it upon themselves to drive.
It's all good. It's all fun.
