Crating

There will be plenty of crating available at the venue and the rings area. Because there is an agility trial at the Crown Center on Saturday and Sunday being put on by another club, early access to crating for PVGRC agility and GRCA Agility will only be from 4 PM to 6 PM on Sunday evening. The building will reopen at 6:30 Monday morning.


There is a blue hardcourt surface that is available as well as ½ of Field 5.


TARPS ARE REQUIRED UNDER ALL CRATES

All dogs need to be removed from the Crown Center by 6 pm on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Crown Center will be open by 6:30 am.

On Tuesday evening, because of the Welcome Dinner at the Crown Center, dogs will be able to remain in the Sport Court (solid floor, primary crating area) and Field 5 until 11:00 pm. On this night, for the safety and security of the dogs, the crating area will be secured and protected by security personnel. They will have means to identify the owners if anything would appear suspicious. Daily cleaning of the crating area will be localized and manual.

PARADE OF TITLEHOLDERS
Anyone that is entered in the Parade of Titleholders can leave their dogs in the crating area where they are already set up. Dogs that are in the parade but not entered at any Crown events can crate in a reserved area on Field 5 starting at 5 PM. Dogs will be able to remain in the Sport Court (solid floor, primary crating area) and Field 5 until 11:00 pm.
On this night, for the safety and security of the dogs, the crating area will be secured and protected by security personnel. They will have means to identify the owners if anything would appear suspicious.

TARPS ARE REQUIRED UNDER ALL CRATES.

Additional Information

The GRCA National is only a single day of events but we are working hard to make sure exhibitors will have several days of Agility at a single location, we will include an independent Agility trial hosted by PVGRC along with the GRCA National Agility. In addition, Salisbury MD Kennel Club will hold an all breed agility trial Sept 23 and 24 at the Crown Center. PVGRC on Monday and GRCA on Tuesday are for Goldens only. Stay tuned for updates on this. The venue has plenty of parking, and also parking for RV's. But we do not have hook ups for those RVs at this site.

Please Note: Agility, Obedience and Rally will be held indoors on an artificial, non-toxic grass sport surface. Lines, circles and dots may be visible. Prior practice on similar surfaces is recommended. Excuses will not be accepted.
