    The Champions Center in Springfield, OH has NADAC on the calendar for October 5-10, 2021.  I'm sure Chris will let us know if this changes.


Margaret is correct for the dates :)

It's pretty much 100% at this point they will stay there.    They were working pretty hard to try and get a horse show from September moved to our October date, but it just doesn't seem to be in the cards

I too am sad that we can’t have Champs this year. But in the end it’s the best decision to keep everyone safe!! Thank you for all you do for us!! Thank you for allowing the qualifying for 2020 to be put toward 2021. Onward to 2021 with positive thoughts 😁

Yes it stinks.  And yes, like most, I'm feeling really down about it.  But I'm very thankful that NADAC has made the adult decision.  I was currently bouncing back and forth between how I could go safely - and making that adult decision on my own.  Have to say the "adult" wasn't presently winning out.  So thank you for sparing me from myself.

As for the West Coast East Coast issue.  In the long run it is definitely a better choice to know in advance where Champs is going to be held each year.  And to have those decisions already in place takes so much burden off of NADAC to have to come up with something different every year. That energy can well be spent elsewhere.

Thanks for your diligence in seeking input and for keeping us informed.

Hey All,

I took the day yesterday to feel sad for myself and everyone else missing champs, but it's back to work today, so I've got a few questions I've seen floating around that we'll answer here, as well as some more detailed explanations.

1) Will Champs be on the west coast in 2021?
Sadly the answer is no.      Our contracts for both our west and east coast facilities are booked on a rotating basis for the 'skipped' years.   So Gillette always has us on the even years, 2020, 2022, 2024, 2026 etc.   And Springfield has us on the odd years, 2019, 2021, 2023, 2025, etc.

So the real issue, is that on the years that we aren't at those places, the dates are reserved for other events.    So if we were to hold Champs in Gillette in 2021, it would be a challenge getting that date, and then it would also mess up our reservations for 2022 since we don't historically have that date in Springfield.     

And the fact is no matter what happens, it's going to suck for either the west or east.   If we hold it on the East coast, the west has to travel farther, or just can't go at all because of the distance and you guys essentially miss 2 years. 

But, if we hold it on the west coast, then it's that exact same issue just for the east coast people now.    so there is no way to win on this one.    And with all the difficulties we've had in the past with getting decent dates reserved, I'm really not comfortable with risking losing them, since that would really affect everyone for an even longer period of time.

2) If I qualified in 2020, will I still be invited for 2021?

If you met the normal qualification guidelines, then absolutely!  We would definitely extend that invitation to the following year. 

3) Will my Regional win count for 2021?

The plan for 2020 was that all regional wins would be for that year only, so Gillette in 2020 only.
But with the issues surrounding us this year we'll be extending any regional byes and invitations out to 2021 as well.



Those are the big ones I've seen so far, but if you guys have any more questions feel free to ask :)

I am afraid it was inevitable Hopefully there will be another VT Challenge that was a great deal of fun!
While the VT Challenge was a good idea, conditions from place to place really don't allow for a fair competition, IMHO.  Not to mention, there are many who don't have access to space or equipment to run the challenge courses.

It was meant to be more fun than competitive....

That is the same type of issue as some people get 20 trials a year and some get 2, not everyone has the same opportunity's, unfortunately.

They posted the full set of results to Facebook a few days ago.  It was fun to see! But I agree, 8 runs on a single weekend was a challenge and completely infeasible right now in the heat.  We basically have stopped VT for now.  Heat indices > 100 daily.  If the humidity would go back down, it would be ok to be hot but hot and humid?  No one wants to run!

I enjoyed the VT challenge.
Id love to see another in the autumn when its a bit cooler here!
(And less rainy!)
It would be nice to do jumpers one weekend and regular the next (or vice versa). Time wise it just wasn't going to happen to do 8 runs in a single weekend for us.

I think it was fun and ive been looking forward to see all results. Ill be happy if we arent last xD but it was a ton of fun to realise i can actually run elite courses other than hoopers. Even if we are slow as molasses at it!

It was a ton of fun at least Linda!  I agree it isn't apples to apples but we had fun trying it.
