July 20 @ 8:30 am 3:30 pm



The Midwest Jack Russel Terrier Club is hosting a fun day on Saturday the 20th of July at the county fairgrounds in Sandwich Illinois. (Same location as our Summer Celebration Trial in August – the July Funday events will be held in the area where Racing normally occurs at the August trial.)  All Terriers and earthdogs who measure 15” or under at the shoulders can take part in the racing and tunneling events. ALL DOGS of any size are welcome to play on our barn hunt course.

The schedule for the day is:

Racing begins at 8:30. When everyone has had the opportunity to run their dogs as much as they want, we’ll ask everyone to help break down and pack away all the racing gear.

Lunch break will be taken around mid-day. Bring your own lunch or go out into town to pick up something.  After lunch we’ll open the tunneling events and the barn hunt course.

The day will wrap up around 3:30 and it will be greatly appreciated if all participants can help pack up the tunnels and barn hunt equipment.

Cost to play all day is $10 per dog for MWJRTC members; $20 per dog for non-members. You can pay the day of the event – cash or check is preferred.  The event fees can also be paid on the website: midwestjackrussellterrierclub.com, on the home page, using the Pay Now button.
