Welcome to the DogGoneFast FlyBall XI!

Thank you for your entries; we are expecting 47 teams and we will have 2 rings.  Please check the other links on our web site for seed chart, racing schedule, and detailed directions/maps.

We have managed to provide each team with approximately 40 heats.    We are doing the “One Schedule for 2 Rings” format. A big thank you to the NC State Pre-Vet club for providing box and line judges for our tournament!  We have ribbons for 1 st, 2nd and 3rd placements, a raffle and great welcome gifts.

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. The two rings will be separated by a barricade.  Please use the assigned doors for entering and exiting your ring and do not ever cross behind the barricade while teams are racing.

Mike Durman and Geoff Brown will be our Maitre-Ds and will be providing ring assignments.  C2 forms will be delivered to the ring for you.

Judges and Acting RD

Brian Fay (Head judge) will be in charge of Ring B or Blue (the ring nearest to the maitre-d table). Kyle Mankes, Amy Brubaker, Carle Lee Detweiler and Jon Bescher will be judging in Ring A or Yellow (near the raffle table). Dirk Elber will be providing judge relief support. We are lucky to have so many fabulous judges available to us! Please thank our judges!
Donna Hunt, from First In Flight, has graciously agreed to be the acting RD for the weekend. Please see her if you have any RD type questions.

Venue Information

The Holshouser building will be open until at least 8pm on Friday night; you may drop off your flyball boxes if you wish.  There is no room for team crating in the racing building, exceptions have been given for judges, for folks that have special needs and for particularly old or young dogs. You must email the TD (Amanda) to request an exception.

Friday night racinge

We are holding Single Dog Racing on Friday night to raise money for AnimalKind. This terrific non-profit organization also provides The $20 Fix for low cost spay/neuter.   Races are best 3 of 5 for $5 with all proceeds to be given to AnimalKind. You may run against someone or unopposed. If your dog is not quite ready for racing, you can request 5 minutes for $5. This fundraiser is important to us, so please come out and support it. We have received permission to use the NAFA EJS during the Single Dog Racing and we will be writing down the dog’s racing times. We expect to start the SDR by 6pm.
