Speed & Stakes Trial
« on: February 28, 2014, 01:40:14 PM »
Could somebody please explain what to expect at the Speed and Stakes Trial fun-raiser being offered in April in Elk Grove?
I keep getting asked about it, and frankly, I don't know what to answer, only that I am going, and I expect to have fun!

Thanks!

I don't know how much we're supposed to say, but the easiest way to explain it is Stakes at a trial.  I thought it was a lot of fun and hope I can get to another one eventually.

Is it a secret?  Is it supposed to be a surprise?  I was curious too.  I believe it's been mentioned somewhere on the Forum, but I can't find it.   :P

There are no secrets.  That is how rumors get started!!

It has a whole lot more to do with a total lack of time for everything that needs to get done.  I will do a full writeup this weekend.

Those that entered S&S in Phoenix were people that are good at Chances and have tried bonuses.  So it worked great.  It is not for anyone just wanting to try something new.  Distance is a MAJOR requirement!!

I know it's not a secret, but I didn't want to be giving any incorrect information, since I don't know it all!  Glad there will be a write up soon!

Looking forward to more details.  I'm planning ahead for April trial at Elk Grove and printed the premium but other than the comment on the front page, I can't tell what exactly is involved or what skills we need.

From what I understand, if you have a good CHANCES dog you will do fine. Distance but not like BONUS LINES.

It is exactly like bonus runs, only tougher than a normal weekend.  The "normal" Regular run might have 20 obstacles and the S&S course might have 26-28, all done from a bonus box.

S&S is like Championships, not like Chances!

If you are thinking about doing bonuses or someday entering Starter Stakes at Championships, it is a great place to enter.  The S&S courses are tougher than the normal Elite runs.

Sorry, thought I read that some where. Is there a written explanation and sample course/courses posted somewhere and I missed it ? Can't wait to see what it is. Lots of people had fun with it in Phoenix !

Yes, there is a sticky topic called "Speed and Stakes Trials" and it explains what a Speed and Stakes trial is.  Sometimes other topics get started and it gets off base from the original data posted by the NADAC office.
