We can still offer FEO for the intro level as well correct?    So dogs over 18 months can enter intro level class and jump lower, but not receive a score.

Also, is it OK to copy your blurb about intro and post it/send it in emails?

I want to know what my exhibitors want :)

THANKS

Yes and yes!

I like the idea of Intro. Did someone already ask this - Will Intro be a prerequisite before moving up to Novice? Thanks!

Dan

No it is not a prerequisite for Novice.  Competitors can still start at Novice if desired.

Great idea!  Especially the shorter courses.  I would do Intro weavers with Jack if its offered this spring.

Just like all of the classes, it will be a shorter course and for Chances it will be a closer line.

Just a thought--I think that eliminating weaves and discriminations in intro chances is enough.  Perhaps add no  "switch-outs" at a distance and I think the chances line could remain the same and be easy enough.  We don't want to make it too easy.   ;D

One question:  I heard from what is usually a reliable source that Intro will not have Qs.  I pointed out that Sharon said there would be titles and qualifiers, and placements would be up to the club.  The argument is that qualifiers are not Qs. Huh?

My understanding is it would be the same as any other level.  True?

Yes, you can.

If you use AgilityEvents and have already sent in your premium, then Jeff is not excited to change those premiums to add Intro.  It is a lot of work for him. 

If you haven't submitted your premium, then you are good!
