Contests Planned:

Timed Races:

Cup Tip: A matrix array of 22 cups will be placed in a design on the floor. The ferret is placed in the center of the cup array and will have 60 seconds to knock over as may cups as possible. One point will be awarded for each cup. A knock over: any knock over, with front paws and/or with a nose and/or with any front half of the body.

Straight Tube Race: All ferrets will be put into a box, at the same time. The only one way out – through the tube. The quickest one to exit the other end is the winner (the whole ferret including the tail must be out of the tube).

Paper Sack Race: A ferret is put into the sack. The sack is folded one time. The bottom of the sack is made so it will sit flat on the floor. The times start as soon as the sack is put on the floor. Once the ferret knocks over the sack and runs/walks free of the bag, the time is stopped when the ferret’s tail exists the sack.

Maze Race: will take place throughout the day no use of food such as Ferretone or other treats. You can enter your ferret more then once. But will have to pay another event fee of $5.00.

Sock It To The Ferret: The object is to be the first contestant to put the socks on all four of his or her ferret's feet simultaneously. Time will be called at the end of 5 minutes.
