VSWC & RSVC HUNT TEST NOVEMBER 17 & 18 , 2018

Updated: 11/15/2018

 

Here is the running order for the weekend.

 

We start at 7:30 am and everyone should be there at 7:00 am just in case of any problems getting there.  They are closing the I 10 at 67th ave. to 51st ave. Eastbound from Friday night 9 pm to Sunday at 2 pm that will only affect you going home Saturday night.   You can go south to Van Buren where ever it starts backing up and I would go to 43rd ave.  then go north and get back on the freeway.  This is the only closure I know of so far, if anything else closes I will let you know.   Just ask your phone the best route home and it should help.

 

We will be changing braces around because of judges and handlers on other fields.  That’s why you need to be there early, we need to keep moving so we don’t go until sundown.

 

We will be having Rena’s Elk Chili Saturday and Sandwiches for Sunday so bring $5 for lunch each day,  We will also be having Rena’s Speed Raffle at lunch time on Saturday so bring extra money for that.

 

Is anyone staying on the grounds?   Please let me know if you are.

 

Thanks,

 

Good luck
