Countdown to the Finals!

By Linda Spindor on Nov. 1, 2021 at 09:17 PM

The TSDA Board of Directors is looking forward to seeing all of you at the Finals on November 12-14 at the home of Chuck and Vicki Riley in Bowie.  What a great place to celebrate our 40th year!  Thank you to our generous sponsors who have made this event possible.

The run order and volunteer work schedule will be emailed to you soon.  Please note where you are to be and at approximately what time.  Thank you for helping us ensure things run smoothly.  As always, check onsite for any last-minute changes.  For a complete schedule of events, please go to

To save on printing, we are also sending the year-to-date financial report.  Don’t forget the membership meeting on Friday night following the Handler Fiesta.  Afterwards,  The Old Geezadours of Texas will be playing in the barn.  Plan to scoot your boots!

• Please return your ballot for the Directors election to Linda no later than noon on Friday. 
• Bring your silent auction item to Vicki Riley, Beverly Rhidenour or Kathy Young.  They will be setting up in the barn. 
• If you won a perpetual trophy last year, don’t forget to bring it back!

A few new items this year:
• The Dabbling Diva will be on site this year to provide breakfast, lunch and snack items.  No need to cook!  Please plan to support our concession stand!
• We will have a flag ceremony and a ribbon cutting with the Bowie Chamber at noon on Friday during the lunch break.  Please come meet and greet!
• Dinner will be served Friday and Saturday night in the big white tent by the barn.
• Please see the provided map for the layout of the trial site. Of special note is the Lower Field which will be running east/west this year instead of north/south.  Therefore, you will need to go down the road to access the field.  Again, please see the note on the map.

Most of all, come relax and enjoy three days with good friends and great dogs!
