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.

I believe that your question was answered before this post.  Springfield, IL  Sept. 28  to Oct. 1.

Yes, it was. And I was hoping to get someone to understand why I asked the question now instead of after 2016 champs.

Hi Foomin!
You are absolutely correct!  My apologies!  As I mentioned, I think I was just having a "female dog day"--by way of explanation, though NOT an excuse, I had just rec'd a call from my dr with less than exciting news (nothing tragic but nothing I was hoping for) and my annoyance carried over into my post.  Again, sorry for any offense. 
I'm hoping to be there next year, hope to see you, too.

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

X-Hoopers will be required for next year.  20 points, any level.  VT counts.

Hi Sharon, 
On August 12th you said qualifications for 2017 ----"They will be the same".

On August 16th you said-----"X-Hoopers will be required for next year.  20 points, any level.  VT counts."

Will there be any other new requirements ?

I am so glad that you us to run X hoopers at the pre trial before Champs, as I am not sure I will ever see it at a trial again for this new qualifying year.  Now I just have to get those 20 points.

Just a point.   Sept 29 and 30 cover the Holiday of Yom Kippur.   This eliminates participation in Champs for me and probably for other Jewish folks.  I was hoping that it would be the following week so that we might attend.

August 16th updates August 12th.

You can always VT X-Hoopers, get some friends, have a BBQ!

Thank you Sharon.  I am trying to get the club here in Texas to add it to their trial next weekend....don't know if the even is a possibility, but it is worth a try. :)

Thanks!  It is always worth a try!

Maybe they have a time with an open date and we can come and do a funraiser, where it is offered, if there aren't any other conflicts.
