I think I read something a while ago that said they try to upload twice a month, around the middle and end/beginning of the month.

Just wondering how long it takes on average for a dog's clean runs to appear in it's points history after a trial. Thanks!

Sara,

See page 67 of the current Rulebook (Appendix 26) for maps.  The course stays the same for levels.  The point requirement changes.

Will maps of Gamblers courses at all levels be available anywhere so I can get an idea of what a course is going to look like???    Earlier this summer, I saw a video on the Forum of a course, however, it was just that one run and I don't recall the level of the run.  Also, it is hard to set a course for practice from a video.  I would like to see what the courses will look like on paper at all levels and in several different set ups.  Is this possible?????  So looking forward to running Gamblers!!!!!  Thanks so much.

Ok, one more time for the idiot in the back (that's me!)
Specifically referring to regular classes and under 100 DRI: So there is just one marked section, not one line for the box and another for the distance challenge. If you only complete 2 sections that is considered a distance challenge not a bonus and it's worth 5 extra points. 3-4 sections is a bonus but getting 3 sections is no more points than 2 except they are now considered bonus points instead of distance points? And a perfect run is worth 15 extra points? So I guess I don't quite understand the purpose of points but can you explain the logic behind 2 sections and 3 sections being worth the same amount? I didn't see any mention of how it works with the bonuses being judged at the show either. How does that work? Or was that bagged and you still have to record and send in every run to be judged?

On another note, I just sent in my very first completed distance challenge to be judged. I don't know if it will be accepted but man was I excited that we got this close. Never would have ever imagined that!

There might be other differences, but the one big difference that I know of is found earlier a bit earlier in Appendix 11 where it states:  "DC points cannot be used for awards such as Achievement Cups or MODSQUAD awards."  So the 2 sections vs 3 sections do get the same amount of points, but the 2 section DC run does not get counted towards Achievement Cups or  MODSQUAD awards.

And BIG congrats on submitting your first distance challenge.   It is a thrill to have a run like that (I've only had a couple) and it only gets better if it's accepted.  Not a let down if it doesn't, because you still have that thrill in your bones - never to be forgotten.

I was wondering what a typical day at Champs is if there is such a thing? Curious because I am at an AirBNB not directly in the area and need to know approximate times for trials during Champs so I make sure I allow myself the time to get to the trial center.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

I found this that I posted last year and thought it might be helpful for you ...

    "There will be a morning walk thru and an afternoon walk thru.  Usually the morning begins with a gathering of everyone for announcements, clarifications, National Anthems, etc.  And that usually starts around 7.  After that is over then there is the morning walk thru.  You walk in groups according to what division you are in - Standard, Double Digit, Vet, etc.  And that morning walk thru takes awhile to get everyone done.  Though this year since there are 2 rings it will be faster. 

After all morning rounds are run there will be a break in the action and a rebuilding of the afternoon course(s).  Then there will be a walk thru just like in the morning - by groups.  Not really any way to specify a time.  Especially since there are 2 rings this year - so "historical data" won't be as helpful.

And where you are in the walk thru groups lines up with where your group is in the run order.  So that changes each day as well."     Addendum:  You get a "run order #" for your dog (each dog) for each day.  That number is the same for both rounds of that day.  So if on Thursday your dog is #167 then he's #167 for the morning round AND the afternoon round.

In 2017,  I had an air mattress in my stall.  it was a great napping place.  But I had my husband and a friend to make sure that I was awake when I needed to be.
