Ed - it's been down for a while from what I understand. I got a number for a first time competitor within about an hour over the weekend by using the support button.

Thank you!  That info on the scoring makes sense!  What about the other part of my question.  If you win a regionals, do you still have to qualify for Champs?  The 10 regular Qs and the 4 Qs each in chances and jumpers?

There is detail on the Champs style scoring posted in the Champs 2019 Info Sheet:

The key bit is this:

"Scoring is done on a time plus faults system. Each round will have a base number of points that everyone starts with. For this example we will use 150 as our base number, keep in mind for the actual event this number can and will fluctuate depending on the course. When your dog runs their time and any faults incurred will be subtracted from this number. So a dog that ran in 25.00 seconds with 10 course faults would have a score of 115.00. This score is what determines your placement in your division."

At a regional, 4 regular runs are scored in that manner and the highest total score over 4 runs for the division is the regional winner.  So yes, it is advisable to run all 4 of the Regular runs on Saturday and Sunday at the regional if you hope to win.  Skipping or scratching a regional Regular run puts that dog at a real disadvantage in terms of winning the regional.  As a dog with 4 runs will more than likely easily outscore a dog with only 3 runs.   Also, choosing to train in one of the Regional regular runs, while potentially a good decision for the dog, will earn an E and will also make it very difficult to win the regional.

There is information about the Regionals posted on the NADAC website, under the "train & play" tab.  Here's a direct link to the FAQ page:

Hope this helps!

I've never been to Champs, so I don't know how the scoring works.  So the scoring is based on the 3 regular runs over the 3 days? (basically, if you want a chance at winning, plan on entering all 3 days?)

To win a regional, a dog must have the best score over the regular runs offered at the regional, using Champs style scoring - basically Time + Faults.  Dog's scores are grouped the same way as Champs.

Hi,  How do regionals work?  I understand if you "win" a regionals, you get an invite to Champs? How do you "win" a regional?  And if you do win and get an invite, does that mean you don't have to qualify the normal way?  Like getting 4 Q's each of Chances and Jumpers and 10 Regular Q's?

The Dog Registration is still Temporarily Down.

If I needed to put in a registration, I'd put in a Support request.

But when a section of the website is down for the weekend, perhaps it should not say Temporary since to me that implies an hour or two. 

I'm hoping no one has needed to register a dog this weekend and no one has reported it thru the Support page and Chris is busy and has not seen this post and is not aware that is Offline.

If still down on Monday, I will use the Support button.

General Discussion / Re: June Announcement for January 2019 Rule Changes

The current rule book is a bit confusing. 
  2.1 last bullet states "Any dog that has not previously entered a NADAC trial must begin all classes at the Intro or Novice level."   Later iin the rule book
  4.1 talks about grandfathering in dogs performing a higher levels in other venues.

  Suggestion...Add a note at the end of 2.1 directing folks to the Grandfathering instructions in 4.1.  Perhaps, "Dogs that hold advanced titles in other venues may qualify for grandfathering into higher levels.  See section 4.1 Levels; Grandfathering.

I know I read/saw a table listing of the n umber of runs a trial can have on 2, 2.5 and 3 day trials, but I can't seem to find the post.  Can someone please repost it?
Thanks, Linda
