It's on! The date for this year's trial is Sunday, September 27th. Like last year, this trial is a fundraiser for Ovarian Cancer Research, with ALL proceeds going to Joan Stout-Knight's team walking in the Gail Parkins Memorial Ovarian Cancer Awareness Walk. Joan is a great friend, has been sheepdog trialing in this area for many years and has been living with ovarian cancer for over 3 years now, and several of us decided this would be a fun way to raise some money for the effort. Here are copies of the entry form and trial information, in a couple of different formats:

The trial was a HUGE success last year with tons of folks pitching in to help, with lots of in-spirit entries from near and far. We hope you can join us to run a dog, spend a nice day in the country, partake in the yummy fund raiser lunch, or just hang out with some nice folks for the day. And even if you can't, please consider sending a donation to help out with this great cause!
