May 2020 NDAL League Courses

Following is a preview of the May 2020 courses and games for NDAL league play. Because of the extreme conditions wrought on the world by the coronavirus pandemic the NDAL presents for play in May three historical NDAL courses.

A dog’s score in league play is derived from the number of dogs with an inferior score. We call this number “Lifetime Performance Points,” or LPP. The calculation for dogs and league teams that manage to play in May 2020 will benefit from existing LPP. Indeed, dogs that ran this course in 2016 may earn additional LPP from dogs that run the course in the present day. When results for May are reported, we will carefully differentiate between historical runs and new runs. Though none of the historical performances will be reflected in team scores for May. It will be a bit of fun.

50×70 Fast & Fun
