The PVSSC Barn Hunt will be held at The Isle of Calasis in Smithfield, VA. We are offering special awards for “Best Beard” and Highest Crazy 8 points each day, as well as high in class schnauzers.
Judges are Elizabeth Staley (Saturday) and Heidi Connolly (Sunday).
For detailed information, see the Barn Hunt premium.
☛NOTE: To participate in Barn Hunt, dogs need to be registered through the Barn Hunt
Association. To register, go to http://www.barnhunt.com/register.html. Registration is a onetime lifetime per dog fee of $30. There are no annual membership fees.
When Barn Hunt opens for entries, Standard Schnauzers and volunteers will get priority for the first two weeks. This year we are utilizing a website for online entries and you can pay via PayPal. All the info will be in the premium. Of course you can always mail your entries to the trial secretary as well.
On Friday, September 24, 2021, the day before the Barn Hunt, we will have run-throughs
available at the trial site in Smithfield, VA. You can introduce your dog to a rat or brush up on
your dog’s skills before the trial.

A PVSSC Fast CAT will be held in Finksburg, MD. The premium will be sent to members and will be located on https://www.sugarloafmountainracing.com. When it opens you will need to be on the website, ready to purchase your runs. It can fill very fast!
☛WE NEED CLUB MEMBERS TO VOLUNTEER TO HELP RUN THE FAST CAT! If you
volunteer you will get advanced entry! The jobs are easy and you will only need to commit to
8am – 1pm-ish on Saturday and/or Sunday. Last year we didn’t have enough members
volunteer and we had to get help from another club.
