The hosting site for this event is located at the home of Thad, Kelly, Whitney, and Wyatt Fleming. The Flemings have hosted many dog trials at their farm over the last several years; with as many as 330 dogs competing in one weekend with two fields running at the same time. These events have been very successful due to the support of many volunteers and handlers.
