Canby, OR arena
« on: September 26, 2012, 11:25:47 AM »
Hi, group.
     Becky Woodruff and Arlene Courtney will be offering an eight week training session at the Canby, OR site after the Championships!!!  Sign up for this exciting opportunity to learn from two great NADAC teams and instructors!!  Class will be on Thursdays.

      We will be leaving the Canby site after this winter, as the entries do not support a facility of this size and expense.  We cannot continue to lose $5000-$6000 each month trying to offer NADAC in an area that already has enough area to keep everyone happy!  We thought that we could offer enough trials to not over-saturate the area and that there were enough competitors from the Oregon-Washington area to support the facility.  But the economy and travel expenses have taken their toll and it is time to discontinue the loss and move from the facility.  This is a beautiful facility and I wish it would continue as a dog facility but we cannot continue past January.

    Be sure to sign up for the handling class from two of the best NADAC instructors!  Becky will be leaving the area after the classes are completed, so learn from one of the best before she is gone!!

Sadly and disappointed, but looking at reality for the site,

I totally understand the financial reality, but want you to know that we are going to miss having you here in the area!!
Besides being great to be able to take advantage of more opportunities to run our dogs, it has been awesome to get to see Sharon, Amanda, Chris, Becky, Marg & Arlene run their dogs from time to time.  Thanks to all of you for putting in the time and effort to give Sunnybrook a try!
Best regards,
Tanya & Joe
Jake & Indy too!!

Well, Gee Whiz . . . that pretty much sucks . . .

. . . then again, it doesn't make sense to keep throwing away those kinds of $$$ every month . . .

After all is said and done at Champs and at the Canby classes . . . perhaps it's time for Mama (Sharon) and Auntie (Becky) NADAC to throw another log on the fire, kick back . . . open a bottle or 6 of wine, snack on some jerky and dried apples . . . and REST!!!

Well, darn! Still it was great while it lasted. Thank you for coming!

Are there going to continue to be FRs in Bend? Hope so. We'd make it over there very so often, at least when there isn't snow in the passes.

Another thought: can we go back to having FRs in Corvallis in May/June?

Thank you for letting us know. Many of us have been wondering when the final decision would be announced. Could you please clarify what you mean by "after winter"? Do you mean after Dec or in mid-Mar when the season ends?

Thank you,

Just want to check: Will there be trials at the Canby facility through the rest of January, or is the New Year's trial the last one before it closes?

Thanks,

Cheryl

Thanks. Just want to confirm straight from the source: Is it official that Canby really is closing after January? It seems like there was a hint that it could possibly continue so it would be good to get the final word.

NADAC will no longer be leasing the Canby, OR site after the end of January.  The facility is still available to be rented on the weekends for agility trials anytime after that.
