General Discussion / Re: Carpal wraps at trials?
« Last post by Lindsey Cooper on April 12, 2018, 03:04:02 PM »
Like Jeannie says - get him out doing something fun and he'll forget he has them on!

For competition, I use neoprene carpal supports. They are just neoprene with elastic/velcro that I make myself.
I also sell BOT and while they may give a little support, they aren't made for competition and I think they'd wear out pretty quick. My dog wears his BOT wrist supports before and after runs sometimes, but I always switch to the neoprene ones for higher support on the ground speed courses.

The comment about "excessive" made me smile. I made carpal supports with turquoise bling for my boy and I guess some could say it's excessive, but most people like the sparkle. :)

2018 Championships / Re: Crating reservations

We’re going to be following up with some of the current reservations to make sure people didn’t reserve more than they needed.


We should have had enough room for around 330+ dogs.   So I think a few folks reserved more then necessary.    If you email me I can put you on a waiting list so when a spot opens up you’ll have first dibs :)

Looks like I didn't act quickly enough, and there are no unreserved crating spaces left. Will more be added, or am I out of luck?

Thank you to everyone.  It is an honor to be considered a NADAC Judge and I'm looking forward to meeting even more people and their dogs than I already have.

I agree, last two champs were a long haul coming from GA. Especially Utah. Having it in TN would be lovely. It’s a great experience worth the trip. It’s very hard to accomadate everyone’s wishes for location. I think NADAC does a great job trying to keep things fair. 💜

Don't forget the Canadians who come to Champs!  They too have to travel a lot of distance no matter where it is held!  For many years, Blair Bloxam from Calgary came to Champs....just to be our gate steward!  R.I.P. dear friend.

I agree the Wyoming and Tennessee areas are a great location every other year.  No matter where it is held, people are going to have long drives. Like Billie said.....it is worth the trip!

This is a subject that reappears every few years.  The U.S. is a large country and some people are going to have to travel a long way no matter where Champs is held.  I expect that the coasts make it especially hard for the most people.  I live in Arizona and had a 60+ hour a week job, but I still managed to get to every NADAC Champs they had, because it meant a whole lot to me.  And although I had small dogs which made flying easier, we worked hard to get those with bigger dogs to Champs.  Wendy Hultsman for several years even drove to San Diego to be able to fly her dog to Champs (an Aussie) because Phoenix was still heat embargoed at the time. 

So yes, it is a hardship, when Champs is far, but I will avow that it has always been worth the effort to go!!!!

And I agree with Diane that I really DON'T want to see two Championships each year.  This is a National event and should remain so!!!!

Having Champs in the center of the country would basically eliminate both coasts.  Moving nearer to the west or east every other year gives those who live further east or west a better chance to attend at least every other year.  And there are some people like me that will travel to Champs no matter where they are held.

What struck me was just “eyeballing” that Wikipedia map,
I’d put SLC  about halfway between the midpoint of the country and the west coast and  maybe Tennessee the midpoint between the KS spot and the East coast (with apologies to maybe Maine and S FL). So the WY, UT sites and the OH, TN sites are probably a pretty fair compromise.
