Title: Upcoming facebook live chat, April 13th
Post by: Chris Nelson on April 12, 2017, 07:47:47 AM
Hey Folks,

We're going to be doing a live chat tomorrow evening, 7PM Pacific time.  on the main nadac facebook page, which is here:
https://www.facebook.com/NADACDogAgility/ (https://www.facebook.com/NADACDogAgility/)

We're going to cover:
1) Some final updates to the new combined hoopers class.

2) A new running format for bonus handlers that will allow a lot more bonus opportunities per weekend.

3) A new running format for all handlers that will allow an extra attempt at Chances or Jumpers, in specific trial circumstances.

4) A new video series to encourage new handlers to get into the sport.    With participation from you!

5) And then as usual we'll set aside some time to answer any questions you have

So if we can't attend the live chat will we be able to ask questions later?  Do you want that via the forum or privately?

Really appreciate the focus on communication.

Thanks,

Gina

Absolutely!

I ask folks not to comment on the video when it's not live, only because it shows up really weird on my end, and it tends to be somewhat difficult to actually find those questions when the video isn't live.

So a question here, or an email or any of the other communication channels is great :)

I would highly recommend trying to avoid losing round 1!

Sometimes exceptions can be made for extenuating circumstances, but it should really be avoided at all costs.

Bonus Question:

Double run format trial.  Handler has a "successful" bonus run as far as they can tell in round 1.  They do the bonus in round 2 and again are successful as far as they can tell.  They submit both videos....can they in effect get awarded 2 bonus runs ?

I would get connected with a better videographer.  You have to have those videos if you want to be considered for round 2.

Did I miss the summary appearing?  I saw a few things go by on Facebook but Facebook is notorious for not showing you all posts, which is why I check here.  Hopefully I didn't miss it here too?

Thanks!!

We haven't done one yet.

The rulebook has been updated which would reflect the hoopers changes, and the bonus options.

The swap option for 3 day double run trials we'll get summarized here soon :)

Ok.  It's hard to keep up with so many formats :( Was hoping for a quick summary or announcement.  I did try to dig through the rule book to find the changes.

If you're entering s 3 day double run trial, on the day where they run 1 round of chances and 1 round of jumpers you will have the option to have a round 2 for one of those.  But you have to give up a jumping class to do it.

So you could run 2 chances, 1 jumpers and 1 regular.

On my phone so I'll do a better summary later.  But that's the general idea of it

Chris,

So for a 3 day double run trial, on the day with the single Chances and Jumpers, you said we have to give up a jumping class to add in another Chances OR Jumpers.  A question was asked by a member of my club, could someone give up a Jumpers to have 2 Chances and still have 2 Regular?

Correct you can.

What you can't do is give up a jumpers and run 3 regular.

Hi Chris,  I just got a chance to watch the video chat from April 13.  I have a couple of questions about the double run format trials:
 
1)is this option in effect now?

2)will it be stated in the premium of the clubs offering it if the option is available (might make a difference in
choosing between trials)

3)is this option also available with tunnelers, touch & go, and weavers? (since weavers seems to be the least offered class)

Thanks
Jill

1) Yes

2) In the future yes.  Since it's brand new there may be a trial where it's not listed in the premium, but you would get the notice in your confirmation.

3) No.   Only Chances and Jumpers.
