Hey guys! Time for the second annual UpDog 4thTacular in Southwest Michigan!
Jason Rigler will be offering a 4 hour disc seminar on Saturday, and is sticking around to help judge this huge three-day event!
If you haven’t played UpDog Challenge disc dog games before, that’s A-OK! Head on over to UpDog’s Website to check out some general rules, then all of the game-specific rules, to get an idea of what you’d like to try. We love seeing new players out there having fun with their dogs, and these competitions are very “newb” friendly. We want to help you succeed! Don’t worry – there will be dog discs to purchase if you don’t have any, and a player’s meeting before each game to talk about rules and strategy. We also have three different divisions to enter for placement awards and will be offering overall awards with cash payouts.
If you have played UpDog before, then awesome! You’ll have a very good idea of what to expect.
Where: Private residence at 15060 31st. St. Gobles, MI 49055 – 25 minutes northwest of Kalamazoo City.
Parking and tenting WILL be available field side. We will be running two fields simultaneously. Porta Potty onsite, limited access to running water – PLEASE bring water for your dogs, drinks/coolers/snacks for yourselves. There are restaurants, gas stations, etc. less than a mile from the field if you need to stop morning of or make food/water runs. We will have electricity if you need it.
When and What:
Jason’s Seminar will be from 10am-2pm on Saturday, July 1st. Working spots are $50. The focus will be on sequencing and strategy. One hour will focus on tricks, one hour on sequencing, 30 minutes on strategy and the remaining time will be individual teaching. You don’t want to miss out on what this 2016 Skyhoundz World Champ has to offer!
Following Jason’s seminar, we will be starting competition late in the day with Far Out at 3pm and Freestyle at 5:30pm
Sunday we will split onto two fields – this is our tentative timing, which may change depending on sign ups. This is at a capped # of runs, so time may change to end sooner, should not change to end later. It will be a long day, but we are determined to make it fun with some raffles, giveaways, and human games like Closest To the Pin!
