Question regarding Tunnel Length and SCT
« on: May 30, 2020, 02:33:06 AM »
Is an 18' tunnel counted as 15' or 20'?

I don’t know how the “home office “ will rule but as a judge, I couldn’t fit it safety under the dog walk so I wouldn’t call it a 20’. I would adjust the yardage for the course at a trial. I have no idea how one does that for VT.

With regards to calculating SCT for a VT (I'm assuming you are asking for a VT SCT calculation), you would count it as a 15' and in the field for 'adjustments', put in 1 yd for the extra 3'.

You also need to understand that an 18 will not safely work under either contact.  So use it as a stand alone tunnel.  Thanks

I'm having difficulty making time with all 3 dogs in Tunnelers VT with all 18' tunnels. I'll try adding the 1yrd per tunnel and if we make time then I'll submit. Thank you.
