    OK, thanks for the info! I was just unsure if you had to pre-register before the day of the event, this will be my first event with my female so I'm looking forward to see how things go!

    Brandon, the field trials are run on a predetermined course through the woods. Before each group of dogs runs the course, someone pulls a drag with coonscent from the start to the tree. At the tree, there is a taxi coon. Dogs are judged by two things. First dog to cross the line, and the first dog to actually bark treed. Hence, line and tree. A dog could essentially get points for just line, or just tree, or both line and tree. Hope this helps.
