Ring Party for BATS (Luton)

Sunday 20th May

We are on Ring 4 at BATS on Sunday. If you want to come along and help on the ring and don’t have a ring party pass, you can collect one from the club on Tuesday.

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t been to a show before, someone will show you what to do.

Donation to Huntingdon Rugby Club

Following our successful Agility Show at Huntingdon Racecourse last year, the Club donated £500.00 to Huntingdon Rugby Club (our hosts for the clubhouse, ring and camping areas) to be spent on equipment for their youth teams. They have purchased some banner feather flags for their mini age group teams to make it easier for everyone to find the correct age group.

Ring Parties

Each year we provide ring party at shows for other clubs. They reciprocate by providing a ring party at our show in September. Anybody who works on the ring for which we have provided ring party all day at these shows will receive a packed lunch, priority camping or car parking.

When entering any of these shows please put Letchworth Ring Party in the helper box on the entry form to ensure you are allocated to the Letchworth ring. If your dog is not yet ready to compete, you can still help at a show. Please see below for how to enter a dog “Not For Competition” (NFC).

  • 7/8 Apr Spring at Ramsey – Sandra is judging
  • 20 May BATS – David
  • 7/8 Jul Wellingborough – Mark
  • 29/30 Sep Suffolk Five Rivers – TBA

Not For Competition Dogs

If you would like to come and help at the show and want to bring a dog with you who is not competing, you will need to enter your dog “Not For Competition”. Dogs must be at least 4 calendar months of age and must be registered with the Kennel Club: either on the Breed Register or the Activity Register.

  • Print out an entry form for the show – these can be found at Agilitynet Show Diary
  • Fill in your details as owner and the dog’s KC name, KC number, breed, date of birth and “NFC” in the Classes box.
  • Provided you have sent off the form to register your dog on the Activity Register, you can still enter your dog in the show by putting NAF (name applied for) after your dog’s name.
  • Sign the form and hand it in at the Secretary’s marquee at the show.

Activity Register

To register your dog on the Activity Register (for crossbreeds and pedigree dogs not on the Breed Register):

  • Print out and complete Form 5 – Registration of a dog on the Activity Register
  • The registration fee is £15
  • The Kennel Club will send you an Activity Registration Certificate – this will include your dog’s Activity Name (KC name) and KC number

Agility: Chiltern Inter-Club Match Runs

Sunday 12th November

Due to each club in the Inter-Club Match being restricted to 120 entries over all classes, some of those who entered the Match may not be able to run in all of their classes. We have tried to give everyone as many runs as possible.

Please collect your ring cards on the day.

Please bring a raffle prize for the Match charity, Keech Cottage Hospice.
