This sounds good!  Just one question - how will Stakes play into the regionals?

Very exciting!

How many Regionals can a team attend?  Iím guessing there is no limit?

Excited to see where they all are.

At this point we're not going to be doing stakes for the regionals anymore.    They don't really make any sense to be used in a regional since the main advantage is getting to run in finals, which all bonus dogs get to do regardless.

And I would hate to see a dog going to Championships just from winning a regional, when the odds are incredibly great it would be the only dog there in certain areas.    So you would essentially just have to show up and get a automatic invite to Champs.    Which isn't really in the spirit of what we're trying to do here.

Attending multiple would be fine, although we would obviously only count one win.

Will scoring for Regionals be time + faults like at Champs?

Excited!

So, as I read this, Stakes qualifying for Champs will continue as before, right?  And for that matter, so will regular qualifying.  You just won't have an automatic pass to the finals.

All stakes dogs go to finals.    So an automatic pass is a little redundant :)

And yes qualifying for going to Stakes at Champs won't have any shortcuts.

With all Regional winners getting an automatic bye into the Finals round at Championships, does this mean that Champs winners will be determined by the Finals score only or will it remain as it is now (highest cumulative score for all 8 rounds)?

Watch under ďEventsĒ section of the website. Presently posted that locations will be announced Jan 12th. Likely dates would have to be confirmed in order to do that.

Attending multiple would be fine, although we would obviously only count one win.

If someone did win first place in two different regionals, and if only one counts, would the person in second place in the second Regional be the winner for that class? Or would the repeat winner just not count for that class, but no one else would take over the first spot either?

Chris has already announced in the video the probable places, or at least the states or the Regionals will be held.
