Gamblers course build
« on: August 25, 2019, 08:46:19 AM »
Does the course for Gamblers stay the same for Novice, Open and Elite? I think it does, but I can't find that spelled out anywhere and I haven't run it in a trial yet.

Thanks,

**  Unofficial Answer**   The course does stay the same.  Maybe under rare circumstances it might change a little - but mostly the same (too early to tell).  And the line might or might not move.  Depends on where it was to begin with.  Clear as mud??  ;D ;D

In the course we ran Sunday, a jump was removed from Novice course.

Hi NADAC,
How does the Gambler's course work other than the amount of time the team has to earn points, based on dog height and minimum # of points needed in order to earn a qualifying run.

If I understand the rules correctly, in order to earn a Gambler's Q, the team must meet the following criteria:

Earn points on the course within the dog's jumping height (is this based on actual height jumping (Skilled/Vet) or their Proficient Height)?
Complete the Gamble
Complete the last obstacle (any direction to stop the clock)

Do all of the obstacles remain the same for all 3 levels: Elite, Open, & Novice  OR are obstacles removed?
Does the Gamble line change based on the 3 levels: Elite, Open, and Novice.

Thanks for your time!

It's completely course dependent.

If it's a super simple gamble, the line probably isn't going to change between levels. 

If it's a harder gamble, then it will probably get changed between levels.
This is all on the course map, not a judges decision.
