Appalachian Air Canines is a non-profit social club of Frisbee dog enthusiasts in Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania. They hold competitions followed by social events about once a month throughout the year, and schedule playdays and other meetings in between. All dogs are welcome to participate in AAC activities.

Frisbee dog clubs are the backbone of the disc dog sport. They organize and promote the sport on a local level, and work with national organizations to run events. They offer people a way to learn more about the sport if they are new, and are a great place for the more experienced competitors to give back. Frisbee dog clubs are quite often active in local animal charities, helping to raise money and awareness for the groups that exist to help others.11866435_10152988027647213_2770368992520140248_n

Registration for competitors begins at 9AM on Sunday.  Competition begins at 10:00 AM and will run through around 3:00 PM.

AAC plans to run 3 games on Sunday during the Fair Hill event:  

1. Growlers of the Gridiron
2. PAWS Freestyle
3. The Rings Of Accuracy

 

Rings of Accuracy teams are allowed 60 seconds and two discs to score as many points as possible.  To receive points, the disc must be thrown through one of the rings, or be caught at a point beyond the structure. You’ll see that if you get it through a ring and have it caught, your points will double. Calculate your risk and reward accordingly!  Freestyle is the most advanced game in the sport, where teams use up to 5 discs to perform tricks and patterned dog maneuvers choreographed to a musical backdrop.

Fees for Competitors: For AAC members, $8 for first dog, $5 for each additional dog. Non-Members: $10 per dog.
