It being COVID times and the U.S. Mail not as functional as usual, we will be accepting entries through the weekend. Entries can be submitted via email and we do take electronic payments (PayPal and Venmo).

Links for the entry form, the test schedule, and instructions for electronic payment are below.

The Premium List for the October 2-3, 2020 USDAA Trial is Posted

The time period for entering this trial is short and the U.S. Mail is not extremely reliable at the moment so email entries will be accepted.   (Hand delivered entries will also be taken at the Mid-Atlantic MADness trial).  Instructions for entering via email as well as other details about this trial are located here:

Barn Hunt Entries for this upcoming weekend

As we are all aware, the U.S. Mail is not currently being reliably delivered as usual. Although the trial is full one day and nearly full the next, our barn hunt trial secretary is concerned that not everyone’s entry made it to her in time. All entries received by today, 24 Aug, have been processed and confirmations have been sent out. If you believe you have entered this trial this weekend and have not yet received a confirmation , please email Charlene at odtcbhsec@gmail.com and she will work with you on this.

If you haven’t entered, and are interested, you can also contact Charlene to inquire about the few remaining spots on the one trial day.
