January Barn Hunt Fun Match Update

BHA-LogoAn update from match secretary Char ( and match chairman Jan (

Oriole’s Barn Hunt Fun Match is approximately 70% full already. If you are planning to enter, please do so quickly. We have decided to do a rat “Meet ‘n Greet” (probably around 8:15 a.m.) for dogs that are entered in instinct (i.e., new to the sport).

We also are exploring bringing in a second judge to accommodate additional runs.

Pre-entries postmarked by 22 Dec cost $8 for instinct and $10 for the other classes (novice, open, senior, and master). Late entries postmarked 23 Dec through 29 Dec cost $11 for instinct and $13 for the other classes. Day of Show entries will be accepted from 8:30 am to 9:00 am, and cost the same as late entries.

You do NOT need a Barn Hunt registration number to participate. Also, you can enter BOTH instinct and novice in the trial (instinct can’t be combined with any other class).

Come out and try it, or come to just check out a cool new sport!  Hope to see you there 🙂

We Made It !

We completed the move to our new location on Sunday, Nov 23rd!  Here’s a first look at the sports field set up for shared agility and obedience usage on a typical training night 🙂
