I agree with you about ASCA Sharon.  I don't like competitors being at the "mercy" of what a club decides.  I suspect they will remove it completely, but it will take time for people to meet, etc.  In other words, it's a logistics problem from being an organization. 

Like you said - any organization would be nuts to keep it now!

Well people always have the option of contacting clubs to review obstacles at their board meetings. I'm not adverse to just bypassing the chute if it's in a course and making a statement.
My instructor is an ASCA judge and, from what she understands, ASCA judges are not going to be including chutes on their courses. It may still show up on a premium as an option.

I plan to retrieve my chute (fabric portion) which I had insisted we use for another venue and use the fabric to decorate the barrels.

Our club is now using the chute barrels as garbage can holders so the garbage cans don't tip over during our monsoon thunder storms. :) :P

I actually have allowed my dog to simply skip the chute on course.  He did it for a while and then suddenly refused flat out.  I think he got frightened by coming out and not being sure where to find me.  I was going to let him get comfortable just bypassing and slowly re-training it, but now I don't have to.  Looks like he is smarter than I am.   :)
