How many years have you been a NADAC club? 6
How many members are in your club? Nonmember club
How many NADAC trials do you hold a year? 4 plus 2 Beginner Agility trials
Do you have any classes or training “get togethers”? GotDog? does provide classes year around. Also hosts several seminars during the year as well. During the summer months we host several VT nights.
Does your club hold any “special” trials? ( like a thanksgiving trial, Easter, etc etc, with special “dress up” stuff or games) I have a 3 day trial during 4th of July and also a 3 day trial during Thanksgiving.
Do you hold any special events during the year? (fundraising, awards dinners for members, etc.) GotDog? awards Trial Stars at each trial – Nov, Nov Vet, Nov JH, Open, Open Vet, Elite, and Elite Vet. Special medals were made and purchased for these awards. During the year points are tallied and the Top 15 teams are posted on the website. At the last trial of the year our GotDog? SUPER Star and Star winner are awarded with a big ribbon and an engraved plate plus a free entry for the Super Star and a half entry for the Star teams. It is based on Q pts. so any level of team could win. It really is fun and we always have different teams win each year. On our website we post pictures of the winners.
Why the name; GotDog? I wanted a name that was fun and easy to say and remember. It is derived after the slogan “Got Milk?” Figured…. Got a Dog? You need agility! Hence… GotDog? Need Agility! A good friend created the logo.
Anything else? Throughout the year GotDog? also posts Opinion Polls on the website. It is amazing the great honest feedback you get when people can be anonymous. After the hits seem to stop the polls are closed and the results are emailed to the Montana yahoo groups. The polls are also left on the site with all the answers if anyone is ever interested in going back to read them.
