Frisbee Dogs

Welcome back, Frisbee Dogs, on Sunday from 10:00 – 1:00 up by the VIP Tent!

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.

AAC plans to run 3 games on Sunday during the Fair Hill event:  Game 1  AAC Distance; Game 2 AAC Fetch; Game 3 PAWS Freestyle.

AAC will also be doing The Senior Dog Minute free of charge.

Toss/Fetch is the basic back-yard retrieve game where teams have 60 seconds to catch as many discs as possible. Points are awarded based on the distance of each catch with 40 yards being the maximum scoring zone.  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.
