This pull is going to be open for pre-registration starting in July. Day-of entries will be allowed. However, if not pre-registered, exhibitors must pay $10 per person to get into the New York State fair. If you pre-enter, you will be mailed $3 exhibitor passes which will be asorbed by your entry fee. Please notify how many passes you will need. 1 pass per dog entry, maximum passes is 2. This is expected to be one of the largest IWPA entries seen in quite awhile. Maybe ever! We are trying to expose and make this sport better known in our area. We are expecting possible entries of 100+ dogs. Let's open the 2011 season with a BANG!
