(4/20/18) 25th Anniversary L’Argus NADAC Trial
We will be hosting our 25th annual L’Argus trial June 22 – 24 at Argus
Ranch in Auburn, WA. This will be a 2 ring, 2 judge NADAC trial, which will celebrate double digit dogs on Saturday, and will also be a NADAC Regional event! The Regional scoring will take place alongside the normal weekend trial scoring (Regular runs only). 2018 Regional winners receive an invitation to
2018 NADAC Championships in Gillette, Wyoming as well as a “bye” into the Championship Finals. For additional information about how Regionals will be scored, and what Regional winners receive, please visit www.nadac.com/Regionals.html.
All levels and classes normally offered will still be offered at L’Argus, and RAT invites all NADAC members to enter the trial.
Additionally, on Saturday, June 23, NADAC will offer a test class for an updated version of Gamblers. There will be no entry fees for the test class, and no Qs will be given for that class. Depending on the
size of the trial, the test class may be limited to Elite level dogs. Entries for the test Gamblers class will be taken during the day of the trial, with the runs being held at the end of the day.
Please review the premium We hope to see you June 22-24 at Argus!
