This is one of the great disc dog locals in the world. On Saturday May 30th, Ft. Collins will play host to a UFO local, the 11th Annual Payton Classic at City Park. This event is always a favorite, with great teams showing up to take part. The "Payton Classic" was named in honor of Colorado's first State Champion, Payton. This is a stop on the UFO World Cup Circuit and will be run using UFO rules.
Cool prizes, Colorado Cup points, and World Cup points will be on the line and of course, a few hours in the warm sun with your favorite buddy playing frisbee. What could be better!!
On site registration will open about 8:30 and the event will start about 9:30. There will be a additional $5 cost for those who have not Pre-Registered, with the exception of Novice teams. Bring your dog, your frisbees, your leash, some water, and maybe even a picnic lunch!
This event is a classic, with incredible weather, a wonderful location and loads of history. The event is named in honor of the first Frisbee Dog State Champion of Colorado, a border collie named Payton. She was owned and trained by Todd Stevens, one of the founders of the club. Todd and Payton were one of the first superstar teams to represent the state.
Weather permitting, we hope to allow everyone two rounds. We will be running two fields with the following order:
Field 1: Open Division Freestyle, Advanced Division/Open Division T&C
Field 2: Intermediate Division, Novice Division, Rec Division
The event host may elect to institute cuts for some divisions.
All divisions will be run in an ordered fashion, but we will be flexible for those teams/people/dogs that are running in multiple events on different fields.
