Briefing

Time Warp is a numbered sequence that includes distance challenges that will reward the dog with bonus points.

On this course the dog will earn 10 bonus points for performing #6 to#8 without fault, so long as the handler stays on the opposite side of the red containment line.

The dog will also earn 5 bonus points for performing #9 to#11 without fault, so long as the handler stays on the opposite side of the red containment line.

Time Warp is scored Time, Plus Faults, Less Bonuses.

Notice that the briefing for the game is fairly complete on the course map. This is intended to allow our leagues to prudently print out the course map for the league players. It’s good to have several eyes on the rules, the placement of equipment and other small details of the game.
