Holmes SDT. October 15,16,17,18
Open, Open Ranch, Ranch, Novice, and Nursery
Class order will be determined after entry's close.

Books open August first, close September first.
These are not post mark dates but actual receipt of entry dates

If the entry overfills a random draw will be done from entry's received.

We will not run on Thursday the 15th unless the entry numbers are very high.
Accommodating as many dogs as possible is our goal.

Entry fees $67 in open and nursery (per run), $64 (per run) in all others. Pay back is $40.00 in all classes
$7 and $4 go to sanction fees in the respective classes, $20 go to pay judge, set out and food cost.

No electric hook ups. These are reserved for those working the trial. So please don't ask.
Plenty of camper parking otherwise.

Judge is Kay Stephens for the open for sure and hopefully all the classes. If the entry's are huge I will get others to just a class or two.

Make your checks to TSDA and mail them to me at the address below.  Herbert Holmes, 9090 fm 1026, Gouldbusk, TX 76845.  That is also the physical address of the trial.   Checks cashed no sooner than one week before the trial.

No refunds after the books close unless the trial is over full and you do not get in.

You do not have the right to sell your spots.

Friday nite will be our handlers dinner nite, free to handlers and spouses. We will have a pit going Saturday nite to cook your food for you if you want to join us. There will be dancing with the distinct possibility of injury. So do so at your own risk. 

In conjunction with The Buck Ewe  trial we will be having a double lift finals consisting of the top 8 total scores from the two trials plus one open judge from each trial.  That will be Sunday pm and will not be the full international.
