Western Regional Oct. 12-15 in Reno, NV
« on: May 08, 2017, 02:53:03 PM »
I have reserved the Ironwood Event Center for the NADAC Western Regional Oct. 12-15. I will have the premium and entry form out soon. Premium should be ready by Wednesday. I look forward to seeing those western competitors that weren't able to make it to Championships in Ohio.

Good luck to everyone either at the Championships in Ohio or the Western Regional in Nevada!

Sharon,

Does that mean that you will not be attending Champs this year?  I had been looking forward to meeting you in person at our first Champs.

No, I won't be able to travel to Ohio this year.

Timing just doesn't work out for this year for a long trip.   Chris will do a great job!

Here is the premium for the Western Regional.  I look forward to seeing everyone there that can't make the trip to Ohio.

Entry will be first come, first in until July 12th, and then Elite entries will be given priority from July 13th to Aug. 15th if it is not full at that time.

Curious, will it be the same style as Champs with 2 runs per day?

The Western Regional is NOT a Western Championships.  Yes, we will have two runs a day, but that is about the end of the similarity.

The ribbons are smaller, there will be plaques instead of big cups and trophies.

The "winners" are not Championships winners.

There is NOT a competition between the NADAC Championships and the Western Regionals.   The Western Regional gives the competitors from the western part of the US a time and place to get together, see friends and have fun running NADAC courses.  It is for those who won't be able to make the trip to Ohio and still want to have an event where NADAC people can get together and enjoy being a part of NADAC.

The big event is the NADAC Championships, that is where the NADAC Champions are crowned.  The Western Regionals will have Regional winners of that event.

NADAC competitors all want a place to come and have fun doing NADAC and enjoying the people, the courses and the positive attitude that I hope all NADAC competitors love.

Only 2 runs a day?  Stanley would expect more after driving for a whole day.

 :)

Although we would for sure win the whole thing, we will leave it up to some other Skilled 16" dog to take the Blue Ribbon.

I think we'll hang in Phoenix and do the local club trial.

Thanks for making the arrangements.

Jumping Chollas puts on a great event and for sure you will have fun doing NADAC that weekend!

Another thing to note is that the winners of each division will get an automatic invite into the 2018 Championships in Gillette, Wyoming.

We've updated the premium to reflect this.

What does the invitation mean? Is it a free entry? Or is there another perk to it? Free meals? Or a free hotel room? Or maybe a kiss from the champion Casanova Cowboy Chris?  😎

At the very least it will mean you don't have to meet the qualification requirements. 
It's all still a new idea so we'll see what it ends up being.  But there will definitely be a large perk to winning the regional.
