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

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. :-)

Just curious about how we'll know what the "sections" are....
Will they be marked on the ground?
Will the judge just tell us what they are?
Will they always be divided by the numbers? (Like, they'd always be 1-4, 5-9, etc.?)

With this addition, I'd really like to request that Bonus handlers have their 2 minutes to see the course clearly either before or after the normal class walk through. It's been extremely erratic on whether we get the 2 minutes for the last several months. It would be nice for the judges to remember to allow for this. The judge has often asked whether we need it, a lot of times we actually say "no".  :)  But, sometimes, with some courses, with large Elite classes, it would be super duper helpful.

Thanks,
Kyle

Are the VT courses going to be updated?  The ones that are on the website say that they are only good through July 4.

Thank you.
