Right I forgot about the no food (timers/scribes can't leave while a ring is running. The same ring MUST have the same timer/scribe for the entire day) by the time our ring ended. You would think they would have ordered enough, or at least saved some for the people in the ring that is still running. Erg 7 am till 6 ish is a long time to go with no food. /vent

Most regular trials feed volunteers very well. Acton trials have ooooodles of food lol. Maybe she needs to be part of running the Ont regionals.

Kathryne would make sure we were fed healthy food, Sandy would make sure we had loads of variety and junk lol.

Ok avoid the position of timer/scribe at all costs, heh. Well now I'm nervous. They were advertising it at my school and I jumped at the chance since it sounded like a cool opportunity (never been to a dog sport event of any kind). They said they really needed people for the 'ring crew' position, so I e-mailed back saying that I was available for the times that they needed the ring crew. I don't know a lot about agility so I have been doing some reading, it seems that the 'ring crew' means different things for different groups. Any tips?

Actually I LOVE timing. Ring crew means you will set jump heights, straighten the chute etc.

I did ring crew when I volunteered. Essentially, you sit on a chair in the ring and after each run you fix the obstacles you were assigned (straighten chute, replace knocked jumps, raise height of jumps/tire)

No worries. If you are a newb, timer, gate keeper and scribe aren't things they'll have you do. They try to get experienced people as you can't really ask Qs while doing it. You likely will be reseting jumps and changing their height

Miracle of miracles, not only am I off work and available, but I HAVE MY CAR! Sierra and I are in!

Dekka will you have a spot where Sierra's crate can crash like last time? Otherwise I'll just set it up in the bug and leave it open. She might need some away from other dogs time.

YAY FUN!

Oh Crappity crap crap.

I just remembered that's the day I agreed to cover a shift for one of my co-workers. Now I'm annoyed. I hardly ever agree to work Saturdays!

I'm going to see if someone else will cover it. It's times like this I didn't wish we had such a teeny tiny staff.
