Raleigh, North Carolina                             January, 2020

Welcome to the DogGoneFast Winter WufFest!

Thank you for your entries; we have 28 teams and we will have 1 ring.  Please check the other links on our web site for seed chart, racing schedule, detailed directions/maps. Please note that we will not have a food vendor at our event. There are fast food locations within a reasonable drive and we will provide maps at the head table. The fairgrounds is a busy location so please keep a watchful eye on your possessions, be observant of the crating areas, and let me know if you see any issues.

Racing Format

The Racing Format is described on the seed chart. Warm-ups will be 120 seconds on both days.  Warm-up time may be reduced if necessary. Please use the assigned doors for entering and exiting the ring and do not cross behind the lanes while teams are racing.

We will be using flyball geek website to provide online access to ring assignments. Dave Thomas has graciously agreed to set up his pass-call cameras again, we are so lucky! Thanks to Jeremy for helping with the necessary WiFi setup to make it all work so well.

Remember that you must advise the judge that you wish a false start practice before the warmup period has completed.

Judges and Acting RD

Our judges will be Jon Bescher, Jeremiah Bolton, and Amy Brubaker will step in if needed for breaks. Please thank our judges!

Alena Tune from Blue Ridge Blast will be the acting RD for the flyball weekend. Thank you!
