General Discussion / Re: Weave pole base design
« Last post by JimmyS. on March 31, 2021, 07:32:30 AM »
admittedly, I use to make them with 16" long feet on each end only. I also used solid round bar for the pole uprights. I quickly realized that not only was that really not enough feet, the solid bar uprights made it top heavy as well.

My latest design is 4 center feet at 12" long and then pipe uprights to get rid of the top heavy-ness when dogs are weaving. I have been super happy with it so far.

attached a couple pics

Yep

getting it to you could be a little bit tricky but I have a couple spots left open for contacts this year. I can only build a limited amount because NADAC work is priority.

Email me at jimmy@nadac.com if you want :)

I like his dog walk and a-frame but don't bother with his a-frame mover.  The weld broke and he won't even reply to my contacts to fix it.  I bought a new mover from Jimmy and I'm looking forward to that!  Jimmy's is steel :)

Sorry that happened about your AF mover.  I love mine (of course it hasn't broken).  I would text him again.  Sometimes he misses a text and it gets buried and goes unanswered unless you shoot him another one.

My partners dad just made me a base set for 6 weaves. The base is aluminum, feet thick steel (only four of them), and the pegs to go inside the pvc poles also solid steel. It breaks in half (3 and 3) for ease of storage and movement. But holy frick is it weighty. I cant wait to use it ^.^ see photo for half of it. It slots together and then has internal pin (nothing sticking up). Everyone who sees it wants one. I told him hed have a business making these LOL.  Totally smooth top, heavy duty but super easy to store and manouver around! He made my Aframe too. Which is the only one I have ever seen with zero gap at the top that even a nail could catch in, the way he did pipe in pipe to give 100% adjustability, breakdown for longterm store or such. Wheels too! I can actually move it around fine with a tow strap which clips into the base of either side for easy wheeling around or pivoting it. O

You are asking for a sportscaster.

NADAC scoring is not instantaneous which would also not allow for your example, You may know how close 2 dogs are to each other but you would not know the score that quickly.

Would have to be coordinated with the Live stream provider yet possibly not recorded for the person paying for the video since they would want the audio for the run with the PA announcer and no sportscaster.

Interesting thought but Four legged Flix or some other video company may not want this complication of a service they are trying to make money with.

Sportscasting is a talent and doing it for a sport which is not commonly known is a difficult ask and if not done well is not worth doing.

All excellent points.  I will say there are other sports with a sport caster that are subject to final review -- horse racing, many Olympic sports like track and field or speed skating.  I agree sport casting takes a talent to do well.  AKC had ESPN recruit a couple talented agility people.  Four Legged Flix would probably not be able to do this on their own. But I think the people NADAC has announcing now over the PA have the talent and knowledge to do it well. I might be in the minority but I think it would be cool if I make finals to have the sport casting sound in the personal video I pay for. 

I realize NADAC is not ESPN.  They are not going to have multiple camera angles and fancy charts and displays. (frankly I found the multiple camera shots took away from what I wanted to see) But I do think AKC brought in new competitors to its venue because of how they did broadcast their finals with sport caster style. All I am saying it could be an opportunity for NADAC to do the same, probably at a much lower budget level. It would be a lot to take on for sure.
