We are proud to announce the first annual 49er AB & Weight Pull Club all working dog event Oct. 19-20 2002. We will have something for everyone from the first time novice to seasoned veterans of Weight Pull & Iron Dog. We will have 2 days of IWPA sanctioned Pulls and a full Iron Dog Pentathlon hosted by Dave Putnam & judged by Rob Boyd. There will also be "stand alone " events such as a 25 yd Sled Pull which will be manageable for the most inexperienced and fun for the pros along with the Tug 'o War. We will also have a "Novice Pull" where the rules will be much more relaxed and the novice will be able to coax & handle his dog if need be. We will also have a limited supply of harness' for you to borrow if you don't have your own. This will all be topped off with seminars and a Bar B Que Saturday afternoon.
Our Event will be held at Western Gateway Park, nestled in the foothills of the Sierra's in beautiful and historic Nevada County just outside of Grass Valley&Nevada City in Penn Valley. The Park itself is very nice with plenty of giant Oaks for shade and a year round creek running through it with nice swimming holes. After the Show there's plenty to do and see as the area is a very popular tourist destination in the "Gold Country".
