Title: Champs costs
Post by: giddyup on December 19, 2016, 11:47:04 AM
Hi, just because I'm thinking about it - what are approximate expenses for champs?  (I've never been). Approximately how much for entry fees (I would be entering 2 dogs). What other expenses might I encounter?  (Besides travel expenses of gas, food, hotel, etc). Thanks for any help!

Hey Jill,

For this year the entry into the main event will most likely be around $275.   We're working on the premiums now so we can nail that down by mid january.
If you want a stall for the entire event it would be $120.  If you only needed it for the main event days it would be cheaper.
Then you just need to factor in your own personal hotel costs and travel expenses.

We usually have a good number of vendors, so spending money if you wanted to have a shopping spree.  I would recommend budgeting at least a small amount for Photos and Videos.  They do a really nice job and it's nice to have those memories :)

We should have the premium out by Mid to late January and then all the event costs will be solid :)

Is there a place where time frames for Champs reside?  When do you have to qualify?  Etc...

Ken,
The champs premium is posted on the regular NADAC website (not the forum) and has the detaiils listed.  There are different requirements for regular Champs and pre-elite champs. Regular Champs has requirements for lifetime points and then"Champs year" (I believe that is Aug 1, 2016-Sep 15, 2017) points in a variety of classes. Pre-elite only needs at least 100 points during the "champs year" in regular, any level but not More than 100 points can be from Elite Regular, or else it will automatically move you up to regular Champs.
Clear as mud?

Ken - Best to go read the premium on the NADAC website and then ask for clarification if you have confusion

I'm pretty sure the champs time frame is Aug 1 2016 - Aug 1 2017 - As it has been in the past - I think what Vicki is referring to is the following for PRE ELITE ONLY  (at least this is how I read it) :




Pre Elite

1. At least 100 points must have been earned be earned in the current year from the Regular Agility class. A dog entered in Pre-Elite cannot have earned more than 100 points in Elite Regular in their lifetime up to September 15, 2017. If a dog earns more than 100 points in Elite Regular, then their entry will be switched to the Elite level.

 2. If a dog is over 7 on August 1, 2017, then they MUST enter the Veterans division. If a dog is over 10 on the first day of the Championships, then they will be entered into the Double Digit division.Veterans may or may not be split into a different division in Pre-Elite, depending upon entry numbers. If not split, then all dogs jumping at the same height will be scored together.

 3. 3. At least 20 points must have been earned in the current year at any level in X-Hoopers.

Do we need to have rubber matting for the stalls?   I have someone who is discarding some and can take it it would be useful for Champs?

Maybe start new threads in this forum that are not about the fees of champs, so they don't get lost under the topic "champs costs?"
