If you are referring to the purple NADAC rosette wreathes in the worker's raffle and in the Virginia basket, it was me.  There is really no pattern, you just need 20 rosettes and the plain streamers from them.  I used a hot glue gun and the streamers to cover a flat 18" Styrofoam  form from A.C. Moore.   I added a piece of picture wire tucked under the ribbons for a hanger.   Arrange the rosettes, 10 on the bottom row, gluing each down.  Stagger each rosette on the top row between two rosettes on top the bottom row, and glue.  I'm attaching a picture to help you.  Good luck!  Are you coming to Champs this year?

According to the website and the handbook, they submit copies of their titles in the other venue.
As per the handbook:
 When entering trials you do NOT need to show these titles in order to enter. Simply enter the trial as you normally would at the level you wish to run. If you have submitted your titles to be reviewed correctly then when your points come to the NADAC office they will show up in your records and accumulate properly. If you have not submitted the proper documents for review, or the review process has not been completed your points will show up with a value of Zero, and will not count towards title or awards. Please note that once your review has been completed, they will start to accumulate. You do not need to wait for the review process to complete in order to enter trials. You could enter a trial and then submit your documents after the trial is over, and once your review is finished your points would then show up as normal. You can submit your titles for review from this page:

If an exhibitor enters a newly registered NADAC dog in Elite, what do they need to do to demonstrate to NADAC that they have an equivalent title in another venue so that their points will count?
General Discussion / Rosette wreath---pattern?

At last Champs, someone made an amazingly beautiful wreath out of award ribbons and rosettes.  Sadly, I did not win that raffle!  Does anyone know who made that wreath?  Or have a website we can order? Or a pattern to make my own?
Thank you!

Trials / Four Paws Rule, 6/1-2/2019

Four Paws Rule's Spring Fling, June 1-2, 2019, at the Jewett residence in Otis Orchards, Washington, was a hot one this year!  We even had a few hours of smoke from distant fires, which we wouldn't have expected so early in the season.  But the smoke cleared off, and the mornings were lovely.  We had a great time with our friends and dogs: Fun courses, good runs, delicious food, lots of NQ and worker prizes, and the best volunteers in the agility world.  Thank you especially to those who helped us build course and tear down on Sunday, when the sun was at its brightest.  We couldn't have managed without you.

It was great to have judge Pam Kaye back in the Inland Northwest.  Pam explained NADAC's new rules and options to us, and some of us tried out the toy option to good effect.  Everyone enjoyed working with Pam and benefited from her knowledge and cheerful presence.

Our long-time secretary Dorothy Bowers did our pre-trial work but was not able to serve at the trial.  Carol Scranton stepped in as day-of-trial secretary, input our many day-of-trial entries, and kept us all on track.  Thank you, Carol and Dorothy!

Barb Soucy provided transportation for the judge.  Barb also gave Four Paws a donation to support our trials (she earned it by making and selling beautiful leashes).  A donation like this is really helpful for a small group.  Thank you, Barb!

Our trial improvements this year included a snazzy new aluminum-frame dogwalk (with wheels!) and a new food tent.  Apparently the food tent inspired Karen Egbert to surpass herself: We had goodies of all kinds throughout the trial.  On Saturday afternoon, we had our usual barbecue, with Gordon Jewett's delicious hamburgers and contributions from many competitors as well.  Sydney Chambers stopped course building in time to custom-make basil-jalapeno margaritas for us. 

From our Brag Board:
    Newton: Superior Novice Weavers title.
    Pasha: Open Weavers title.
    Piper: Open TnG title, Open Tunnelers title.
    Raider: 1st Elite Chances Q.
    River: Open Chances title.
    Wyn: Superior Elite Regular title.
Sorry I have been slow in getting this message out.  We hope to see you at our trial on August 24-25!

That's awesome. I hope things continue to improve. You can always do better, right?
2019 Champs General Discussion / Pre-Elite Bye in Elite CHAMPS
« Last post by Janice_Shavor on June 13, 2019, 06:31:11 AM »
Walker earned a Pre-Elite Bye at the Southeastern Regional.  He has now qualified for Elite Champs.  My first guess would be that Bye does not entitle him to a final round in Elite Champs.  Correct or not?
Hello friends! We would like to invite you to join us for our annual trial, August 16-18. Come play at "NADAC's most scenic trial location" - our judge this year is Marj Vincent and our premium is now available!
