What we found is that the bottom bar more often than not affected the top bar in a negative way, to where it couldn't sit properly in the cup.

So a single bar actually gets a better placement of the bar in the cup at the higher jump heights.   Not to say it isn't possible with two bars, but it causes more issues then it solves
Hey Daniel,

We could like one also.  Looking forward to seeing you and the gang.

Pat (Sirius) and Valorie (Rowdy).
Hi Daniel,
That looks really nice!!  We will take two.

Since I am the equipment manager for my club, I want to be clear about this.

If we use pedestal style jump uprights, there will be one horizontal bar at the dog's jump height;  if the jump design has a ground bar between the uprights then there will be two horizontal bars, one on the ground and one at the dog's jump height.

When we switched to pedestal jump uprights we were using two bars per jump (one at 4 inches and one at the dog's jump height), now we only need one. Correct?

The two jump requirement has already been removed from the equipment specs.

And it should be 42" to the top of the line/tape.    There is no rule or guideline on marking the side of the contact, so anything goes there :)

Question 1:  Marking the contact zone
The rule book says:  All contact zones must have a clear line of demarcation 42 from the bottom of the
ramp. This may be done by painting the lower 42 with yellow paint or applying a
minimum of a 1 wide white line at the 42 point on the contact ramp.

If using tape, is the top edge or bottom edge of the tape supposed to be at the 42" line?  Related to that, is there an official or preferred way to mark the contact zones on the side of the ramp for the case where the contact zones are painted rubber?  Is tape good enough or do we need to paint the metal?

Question 2:  Two jump bar requirement.  In section 7.6 is this statement:
One bar per jump is required for all winged and non-winged jumps. (Two bars are to be used if
there is no cross bar/bottom support between the uprights.)

I just want to verify that the two bar requirement will be removed from the rule book.  When I talked to Chris at the Texas regional, he didn't think there was such a requirement, but if there was he would remove it from a future update.
