A New NDAL Club
We are proud and pleased to welcome a new NDAL franchise: Sport Dogs Jalisco, out of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. You’ll note that all but one of their scores are marked for “Elimination”. Any elimination is difficult to do under our rules for performance. It’s easy, when first starting, to adopt scoring rules from the “International” style of the game. We’re working with Sports Dogs Jalisco to understand our more “granular” approach to scoring. We will chalk off this month to lessons learned. They have been quite good-natured and gracious about this confusion.
