so save this date on your calendars to come watch the Disc Dog Southern

Nationals, which is one of the world’s most prestigious Canine Disc

competitions for over 2 decades. The weather is looking great and the

crowds are expected to be larger than ever.

If you are planning on competing with your dog in the Disc Dog Southern

Nationals pre-register is required. You can get more information from the

Greater Atlanta Dog & Disc Club website, www.atlantadiscdogs.com.

Registration will open from the GADDC website 30 days before the event

and close April 11, 2014. This event will be offering only the two (2)

USDDN Qualifier divisions and other beginner divisions. Anyone can

enter the Pro, Novice and JR kids division on one day or both days.

Anyone can enter these divisions, but you MUST Pre-Register at the

GADDC website, http://www.atlantadiscdogs.com/dogwood.htm.

Both divisions require pre-registration as they only allow competing dogs

at this class A Festival and they dos not allow spectators to bring dogs at this

festival. However, if you are a dog lover you are not going to want to miss

this amazing array of athletic dogs showcasing their special bond with their

human partners. When you arrive and complete your registration onsite

you will receive a special dog bandana for your dog(s) which allows you to

have your dog at our event site at the festival. However, no dogs are

allowed to walk around the other parts of the festival.

Print your parking pass from the GADDC website and place this in your

dash board. This allows you to drive up and unload; however you must

still pay for parking and place their paid receipt in your car window.

This event does NOT allow you to bring your own tent, so tenting will be

provided, so do not bring anything you do not need as everyone will have

to share tenting; Also, because this is a Class A Festival downtown Atlanta

paid Parking is available at the Park Tavern Restaurant at 500 10th Street

NE Atlanta, GA and Piedmont Street. You will be able to drive up and

unload in the gravel parking lot but you will want to bring a wagon to roll

stuff down the hill to the field area. Parking managed by the City of

Atlanta now and is anywhere from $15 a day to $20 a day.

The nicest and closest hotel is the LaQuinta Inn in Atlanta, GA near

Vinings area. This is on I-285 and W. Paces Ferry Road in Atlanta. They

have a $75 room rate on the internet. This is a great area with lots of

shopping and local pubs.
