Two clubs have reported results for the 50×70 Fast & Fun League in May. We continue reporting to acknowledge everyone who has the will and wherewithal to continue playing during these interesting times.
We are using “historical” courses, which have been played before. The efforts of dogs playing in May earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP), as the historical performances were ranked with the new performances. And LPP is a measure of rank.

We will be publishing “historical” courses so long as the world is required to stay at home and maintain social distances that make organized sports difficult to play. These courses are appropriate for small groups and individuals that have the capacity to build full courses.
The Garden League
The NDAL is sponsoring an ongoing competition for a small back yard that we call “The Garden League”. We are currently on Week 8 of the league. Our rules allow new players to go back and play all the previous games.
