2019 Champs General Discussion / Re: Pre-Champs
« Last post by Marcy Matties on July 22, 2019, 07:45:36 PM »
Chris will obviously need to weigh in on this.  But from what I've seen there appears to be lots of stalls still available for crating.  I just pulled up that reservation page and did a search for the word "left" (meaning still available) and it showed 146 stalls still "left".  So I would be surprised if you couldn't.

Just for future information.  can you sign up for pre-champs even if you do not have a dog competing in Champs?  and if the answer is yes, could you reserve a creating spot.

The answer to the first question is definitely YES, Pre-Champs is a NADAC trial for anyone to sign up for.
I have signed up for Pre-Champs and do not have a dog running in Champs. I have signed up for side runs too.

Crating space is a different matter and may vary by location at future years. Crating space is often low cost and should be reserved for those actually competing in the Champion event.

However if Stalls are available I would say anyone can rent a stall for the event, you may want to come as a spectator but still need a place for your dog to hang out.

Such an awesome idea to think that NADAC is expanding like this.

There are lots of NADAC skills trainers that have gone online with their training, Amanda certainly being one of them. Additionally, remember you have the VT runs program that a) gives you great examples of NADAC style courses to show you the skills you need, and b) when you're ready, that same program can help you to get to run NADAC courses for credit, and draw in your nearby friends and neighbors.  If you get enough folks intrigued, I suppose there's always a possibility for clinicians to head across the atlantic for a week or two at a time.

Sounds exciting!  Good luck!

What are entries looking like for Pre-Champs- are you close to filling?

And, what is the deadline to enter Pre-Champs and Side Runs? Also August 15th?

2019 Champs General Discussion / Re: Deadline to sign up
« Last post by Lynn Broderick on July 22, 2019, 12:06:03 PM »
I honestly did look for that deadline date, and couldn't find it anywhere. 

Since the last day for qualifying is also July 31st, shouldn't competitors have at least a day or two to make their final decision about entering? Granted, there is the second draw, but especially if you're waiting to hear on a VT run, or get your trial results and tally everything up, it's nice to have some leeway.

The last day to enter Champs, either way, is August 15th?

Just fyi, I posted one of Willow's chances runs on a collie forum, and here's a comment from a person in Europe who saw it: "You have all these amazing varieties of agility, and I really really REALLY want them in my country as well 😍😍😍" ... so, maybe another trip for Amanda one day? ;)

General Discussion / Re: August 1st Bonus Updates now in rule book
« Last post by arne on July 21, 2019, 03:21:07 PM »
I like the new rule changes. Thanks for the update. 

As long as this is an update to the rules I do have a couple other questions.  Several years ago we were denied a bonus run because my dog did not have a sit stay before the start.  We ran a sling-shot start.  The rules state that the handler has to be in the bonus box before the dog goes over the first obstacle which I easily did.  I definitely found it annoying to be denied a bonus for not meeting a "rule" not stated in the official rule book. I still do not see any such rule listed.  If this is truly a rule could it be included in the rule book? If it is still a rule, does a dog with a sling-shot start just lose that section or is the whole bonus/DC lost? Also what is the rule for a dog with a stop on a contact?  Can there still be a bonus for that section or does he need a running contact?  Is there some rule about how fast he needs to go down the contact?

Thanks for the clarifications,
Arne Lindberg

There will be only one line down and the sections will be marked on the course map. There won't be any extra lines marking sequences, just like Champs. :-)

Judges aren't required to let the bonus handlers have 2 minutes ahead of time for walkthrough. Most bonus handlers across the country use the 2 minutes to first dog to get a last check of the course without a lot of people. :-)
