Limited space in each session is available and pre-registration is required. There will be no day of registration. Those attending must be at least 12 years of age with dog handlers being 16 years or older.

The fee is $5.00 per person. All persons entering the event must be registered in advance.  Registration for dogs is not required. Registration is currently available through WebTrac or by visiting the front desk at Ida Lee Recreation Center. Walk-up registration on the day of the event is not available.
