Title: Updated running orders and worker sign ups
Post by: Chris Nelson on September 05, 2018, 12:34:24 PM
We're writing today to let you know there is an updated running order posted to the NADAC website here:

https://www.nadac.com/Championships.htm


There were quite a few adjustments that had to be made for conflicts, so please check and make sure that you have enough space between dogs.   We tried to keep them all straight, but it is possible we missed a couple!


Also the worker sign ups are now open!

They can be found on the same page.


We are doing the workers a bit differently this year in that you will sign up for a specific number of runs, rather than a division.    We tried to keep the groups to around 25 dogs, that way everyone has a chance to come out without interfering with their day too much.

With that said we absolutely cannot run the event without volunteers, so please signup for whatever you can.    There is a worker raffle that you will earn tickets for and from what I've heard it should be pretty good this year


Thanks everyone and we'll see you all soon!


Chris

Hey Chris,

I see that Summer Samaroden was moved from DDmini jumping 4 inches to jumping height of 8 inches.  Is the height listed the jump height or based on dog height.  She only jumps 4 inches.  thanks

Chris:
I signed up but I think I signed up for the elite ring.  I want to work the pre-elite, double digit ring.  Can I verify that with somebody?

My mistake.

I signed up for the pre-elite/double digit.  Ignore my earlier post. 

Thanks-

I assume if you sign up to work a set of numbers that you are doing it twice in a day?

I noticed when I was signing up for volunteer work that the changeout spots on Sunday on the run orders don't match the volunteer signup form ... because the day starts with the stakes classes.  Not sure how to work out which group to sign up for ... I'm assuming that if I just sign up for, say, the 3rd group that will work for pre-elite/DD dogs #58-82, not 51-75.  Right?  (My brain doesn't do counting very well past a certain hour!  ;) )

Thanks for catching that!    I just got it updated to show the correct cutoffs for pre-elite on Sunday

What is Box Attendant?

There are 3 boxes inside the ring for shuttling dogs into the rings.

You basically just stand there and push people through when the next box is open.    It's a pretty easy gig :)

Is there a worker sign up for the pre-champ days?
Title: Re: Updated running orders and worker sign ups
Post by: Chris Nelson on September 12, 2018, 11:16:05 AM
Pre-Champs are more like a regular trial.   There will be a sign up sheet each day for those jobs :)

Which box is closest to the ring 1 or 3?
Title: Re: Updated running orders and worker sign ups
Post by: Chris Nelson on September 12, 2018, 05:17:18 PM
Box 3 would be the closest to the ring :)

oh, bummer.....I had it reversed for box order.....but it still works.

Even box 1 will be right next to the ring edge, just not right next to the start line :)

I'm a bit late to this sign-up....oops.
But this is mostly for any other procrastinators like me, not that Chris should fix it this late!!

For the Elite ring, Sunday workers for the last two groups, it actually says THURSDAY.
The rest all say Sunday, so hopefully everyone is paying more attention than I was when I went to write down Thursday, and said to self, Oh no, you can't work that one that day! 

 Safe travels to all headed to Gillette!

Hi Chris   I went to the look where you are working and not understanding it . Are these just being added as you have time . There are three pages of Elite workers and Iím not seeing my name as I signed up for pole set #4 all four days . Sorry to bug you for such a trivial question . Is there a place to search my name?

Hi Brenda,

That is a great question, and I was thinking the same thing.  I just happened to be browsing the NADAC site under the main "NADAC Championships" link, and I noticed a new link there called "Find where you are working here".  You can search for your name there, and it will show you everything you are currently volunteered for.  Pretty handy!  It's like Chris was reading our minds!   :)

Actually, I just re-read your question, and realized that you already found the link for "Find where you are working here".  I see your question is that you don't see your name in the list.  Sorry for my confusion!

Itís everything up until yesterday afternoon.

Are you viewing on a cell phone?   It works great on a computer,  there is a search bar on the top right where you can search for your name and see where youíre working.

Cell phone,  not so good.   Going to try and fix the mobile version tonight

Maybe she signed up after you posted the link.  But she's not on there at this point.  I searched from my laptop.
