2017 qualification?
« on: August 11, 2016, 02:21:47 PM »
Is the qualification period for the 2017 champs open now (as of August 1st)?

Any idea where it's going to be held in 2017? USDAA already announced they are going to be eastern US next year. I only have vacation time enough from work for one major agility event per year. (AAC nationals this year, got 8th place overall woooooo!)

Yes, when one qualification finishes the next starts.

Can't answer the rest.

Yes, August to August.  We will be in Springfield again next year, last week of September.

I've never been to any, and I can't find a list of historical locations for past years' champs. Specifics are nice. Thank you.

Springfield IL. State fairgrounds, Colesium.  It is a really nice facility!

Can you give the exact dates?  Last week runs into October on a weekend.  I just want to write it in the calendar!  Might be able to come this time!

Thank you!  We will aim for it :)  Maybe my baby dog can qualify pre-elite and I know my son and his dog can qualify for regular.  My older girl is semi-retired so she can't do it unless DD dogs get a lot smaller courses.  I'm still remembering sucking air down after that 43 obstacle opening course a few years ago and running at full speed with her on that course.  Fun but she can't do it like that now!

Are qualifications the same as 2016 or will there be additional requirements?

Call me crazy but shouldn't we let the poor overworked NADAC crew get through THIS year's Champs...and dealing with all the computer snafus...before we bug them about 2017?  I mean I understand some people needing the dates maybe for vacation requests...maybe...but how about waiting until October for most of the questions...
Of course maybe I'm just having a female dog (bitchy) day... :-)

If the qual period is August to August, it is perfectly valid to ask now where 2017 champs are. There are no NADAC trials during the winter months up here, which cuts qualifying opportunities short. I have to plan NOW, in order to make the best use of my available time. Waiting until October means losing two months' worth of possible trials. Those possible trials are few enough in the first place.
