COVID-19 Updates as they relate to SuperPup trials:
1. Classes: All classes and privates are CANCELLED until further notice.
2. Trials: Based on Governor Hogan's announcement on 3/16/20, I am not currently allowed by Maryland law to hold a trial until the 10-person ban on gatherings is lifted. We will respect and follow this law for as long as it is in effect and will also abide by any/all BHA protocols.
3. Since it is only 2 weeks away and the virus is still spreading, the April 4-5 trial has been cancelled as this will not be resolved by then.
4. The May trial: Since everything is in a constant state of flux on this issue, I am not going to officially make any decisions about cancelling the May trial until about two weeks before, like maybe on closing date. I would love to be able to host it so am going forward with planning with that goal in mind. Here is what you need to know so you can decide if you want to sign up in advance or not:
a. All currently listed closing dates and associated fees still apply. So, the general closing date is still April 17th. Late closing time/date is still 6 p.m. April 29th and includes an additional $5/run. Day of Show (DOS) entries will be taken from 7:15-7:30 a.m. for all classes, and 9:30-9:40 a.m. for instinct, novice, and open and includes an additional $8/run. These dates/fees will not be changing so if you don't want to pay a late or DOS fee, get your entries in the mail or put in on-line by midnight April 17th.
b. If you choose to enter in advance and the trial is cancelled, you will receive a full refund with the exception of any non-refundable Pay Pal fees, assuming you entered on-line. Checks will not be cashed until the final decision is made after the closing date. If we cancel, you will be notified and all checks will be shredded.
c. If we hold the trial and you have pre-entered and choose not to come, you will not receive a refund same as with any other trial.
d. If we hold the trial but you have been tested for COVID-19 and are under quarantine, you will receive a 75% refund consistent with a dog being injured, as noted in the premium. You must provide some paperwork from your doctor/medical facility prior to the close of the trial - please scan and send it via email to email@example.com. This does not apply if you have a cold, the flu, allergies or any other malady - it is strictly related to COVID-19 and the paperwork must state that.
I hope this gives you the information you need to make a decision on whether to enter this trial or not. I remain ever hopeful we can hold the May trial.
