Upcoming facebook live chat, April 13th
« on: April 12, 2017, 07:47:47 AM »
Hey Folks,

We're going to be doing a live chat tomorrow evening, 7PM Pacific time.  on the main nadac facebook page, which is here:
https://www.facebook.com/NADACDogAgility/

We're going to cover:
1) Some final updates to the new combined hoopers class.

2) A new running format for bonus handlers that will allow a lot more bonus opportunities per weekend.

3) A new running format for all handlers that will allow an extra attempt at Chances or Jumpers, in specific trial circumstances.

4) A new video series to encourage new handlers to get into the sport.    With participation from you!

5) And then as usual we'll set aside some time to answer any questions you have

So if we can't attend the live chat will we be able to ask questions later?  Do you want that via the forum or privately?

Really appreciate the focus on communication.

Thanks,

Absolutely!

I ask folks not to comment on the video when it's not live, only because it shows up really weird on my end, and it tends to be somewhat difficult to actually find those questions when the video isn't live.

So a question here, or an email or any of the other communication channels is great :)

I would highly recommend trying to avoid losing round 1!

Sometimes exceptions can be made for extenuating circumstances, but it should really be avoided at all costs.

Bonus Question:

Double run format trial.  Handler has a "successful" bonus run as far as they can tell in round 1.  They do the bonus in round 2 and again are successful as far as they can tell.  They submit both videos....can they in effect get awarded 2 bonus runs ?

I would get connected with a better videographer.  You have to have those videos if you want to be considered for round 2.

Did I miss the summary appearing?  I saw a few things go by on Facebook but Facebook is notorious for not showing you all posts, which is why I check here.  Hopefully I didn't miss it here too?

Thanks!!
