Please be pleasant to volunteers. They are giving up their time for this, and trails cannot happen without them.
As soon as you arrive, go to the volunteer desk and see if there is anywhere you can help out.
Pick up after your dog, there are garbage cans on site.
Pick up you own garbage, there are garbage cans on site. If you see garbage in the ring or the field, it would be nice if you picked it up. Our lawn mowers do not like garbage.
Keep your dog on leash when not at the warm-up jumps or running an event.
Respect any dog that needs "space". If your dog needs "space" politely ask other handlers to respect it.
Check in with the gatekeeper before each even, either before the briefing or after walking the course. If you do not check in, the gatekeeper will assume you are not there.
If you need to change the running order for any reason, do not do it yourself. Have the gatekeeper do it, as they need to mark the running order in a way they understand, and notify the scribe.
As each event progresses, keep track of who is running. Be at the gate well before your turn and let the gatekeeper know you are there.
If you have a question or need to speak to the judge, fgo to the gatekeeper. They will wait until the current run is finished and alert the judge.
Respect the volunteer's job, especially the timer, scribe and gatekeeper. Refrain from speaking to them as this can distract them from their job. If you need someone to hold your dog or treats, or film a run, ask another handler.
(a) In the ring - the dog that is running
(b) On deck - the next dog (second)
(c) In the hole - the dog after that (third)
