Upland and Antler Retriever Challenge

Contest Times: TBA

Upland and Antler Kennels will be putting on a FREE Retriever Challenge at this year’s show.

This fun contest will see which dog does the best job of responding to commands to retrieve a bumper from 40 yards. The contest is free and will run at noon and 2:00 p.m. each day at the show. Prizes, including a 5-bird hunt, will be awarded to those dogs with the best times.

Registration for the Challenge can be made by calling 607-664-2300 or by signing up at the Show Office at the entrance to the show. Dogs are welcome to attend the Outdoor Show with their families but must be kept on a leash.

Happy Holer Miniature Golf

Bring the whole family to play mini golf together under the pavilion.

Children will have a blast playing the courses, and parents can encourage their kids to enjoy an activity that doesn’t involve long lines, crowded areas and the need to be quiet! It’s a great outdoor activity to do together.

In what other game, in what other walk of life, can you perform something that in that moment is as good as it can be? The average person cannot go to a major league ballpark and hit a grand slam to win a game, but when the average person makes a hole in one, it is a shot that no one, not Phil Mickelson and not Jack Nicklaus in his prime, could have done better at that moment in that place. The chance of, and quest for, perfection is what keeps golfers coming back.

So check out the putt putt course at the show this year!
