July 2020 Water Trial — Cancelled


Unfortunately, the July 18-20 Deep Lake water trial has been cancelled for this year. Nolte State Park will be unavailable to special use permit events through June 30, and very likely through Sept 30. So even though the parks may be open to the general public, that will not include group activities like ours.

We certainly plan to hold the trial Deep Lake in 2021, so mark that on your calendar! Tentative dates are July 17-18, 2021.

Please be sure to cancel your personal reservations for hotel/camping, if you’ve made any.

We hope that the Flowing Lake trial will go on as scheduled September 12-13, but that too will be subject to pandemic fallout. We will keep you posted in a timely manner as things develop. Fingers crossed things will have cooled down by then and we’ll be able to proceed without jeopardizing our volunteers and participants.

Accommodation info

Hotel: We have set aside a block of 7 rooms at the Rodeway Inn in Enumclaw for the PNWPWDC water trial. They will waive the first 2 dog fees for up to $20. Room total $125/night. If you are interested in hotel accommodations, please make your reservation ASAP. Rooms in Enumclaw WILL fill due to the numerous events in the area at this time. Better to reserve and cancel than not get a local room.

Camping: Camping is available at the Enumclaw Expo Center RV park which is next door to the Rodeway Inn. This RV park will likely fill as well for our trial weekend, so please make reservations soon.


If you have questions about the July water trial, please contact the Trial Chair Julie Hicks
