We have had two clubs test the EGC Gamblers with great success!  Right now it must be hand scored as there isn't any software available yet for EGC Gamblers.

We have also started using the new course design for Barrelers and it has had very positive feedback. 

So far we have no negative feedback from either EGC Gamblers or the new course design for EGC Barrelers.

So we are pretty set that Barrelers will start using the improved course design. 

We will add EGC Gamblers during 2015 and by the end of 2015, Gaters and Chances will be removed from the class listing.

Also the faults allowed will be four faults for all levels in Barrelers and Hoopers and any runs under 50 points will be an NQ, once the software is updated.

I will announce when the software programs are updated and the above improvements are in effect.

You will remain at your current level of Barrelers, that doesn't change.

For EGC Gamblers, you may start at Intro/Novice or you may continue at whatever level you were at in EGC Chances.

You only need 30 points at a level before moving up.

After months of recording results and receiving input from clubs and competitors, NADAC will continue to offer Extreme Hoopers and Extreme Barrellers to the NADAC program.

Gamblers has not been well accepted and exhibitors have not given very much positive input about the class.  They find it difficult to attempt and hard to understand.  Judging are not finding it to be a rewarding experience either.  Gamblers has been run widely in the Southern California/Arizona area, also in the Bend, OR area and lightly in Alberta, CA and very sparingly in other areas.

Many clubs that had Gamblers slated as a class have switched to a different class after testing it out. 

With the lack of positive feedback and acceptance, we don't see the need to continue to promote Extreme Gamblers.  We have removed it from all of the Bend, OR funraisers.

Forgive me if this has been answered--
what awards can you get from Xbarrelers and Xhoopers?
I have added them to my trials so I know people will be asking me questions :)
Thanks

Still confused- posted these questions last week and would love an answer please

#1 x-gaters and x-chances can be transferred to x-hoopers and x-barrelers?

#2 - What are the requirements for and Extreme NATCH ?

People in the northeast would like to know :)  (Ok really just me but still ...)

Thanks

Gaters can go to Barrelers,  X-Chances and x-Gmablers could go to Chances.

There will be no more Extreme NATCH, it will be replaced with an All Around NATCH that includes X-Hoopers and Barrelers.

Barrelers will be called Barrelers, not Extreme Barrelers.  We will stop using the acronym of EGC, since Barrelers and X-Hoopers will become NADAC classes and not a separate entity.  Strategic Hoopers will end.  Clubs can offer Numbered Hoopers or X-Hoopers and those points will combine together as "Hoopers".

Some time ago there was a title/awards flow chart.  Perhaps a revival of that could help us "challenged" people remember new changes in titles a bit easier?

I hate admitting how dense I can be, but does that mean if we have 100 Open XHoopers points, I could transfer those to "plain" hoopers and that would count toward our Open All Around if that's the only class we lack?

Thank you!

So in order to get All Around NATCH, do you need to have your superiors in all levels? 
Or is it 230 Regular and 130 points in ALL other classes?
Thanks

I like the fact that Barrelers will stay as its own class (and that point for Barrelers can only be earned from X-Barrelers and/or X-Garters).  I really enjoyed my last Open Barrelers course a few weeks ago - nice balance of tunnels and barrels and change of side challenges!

I also like that X-Hoopers will remain its own class, but I am not in favour of combining Hoopers with X-Hoopers for points/titles.  They are very different courses, with very different challenges and very different scoring (and 5 pt Qs allowed in X-Hoopers, but not numbered Hoopers).    If it is its own class, why can't we keep it as a separate titling class? 

Thank you,
Brenda

Superiors have never been a part of a NATCH.  The All Around will require all points needed for a NATCH, Versatility NATCH, plus 230 points in X-Hoopers and 230 points in Barrelers.

Ok trying to understand :)

Until recently, you needed superiors in EGC to move up...but that is no longer the case.  You can get 30 points and move up.

In order to get an All Around NATCH, you need 230 in barrelers and hoopers in addition to NATCH VNATCH  requirements.   Just curious as to why we would need 230 in those two classes but only 130 in the other non-regular classes.   

Is barrels and hoopers going to still be 'beta' format even if the trial is not beta?  Or will there will 2 different courses for these classes?

Thanks so much
