Five clubs have reported results for the 50×70 Fast & Fun League in August.
We are using “historical” courses, which have been played before. The efforts of dogs playing in August earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP), as the historical performances were ranked with the new performances. And LPP is a measure of rank.

In last, or fifth place in August was Dirty Dogs Agility League out of Parker, Colorado. Dirty Dogs recorded only one score… which puts the club at a disadvantage, as league scores are the sum of the top five scoring dogs for each franchise. Representing Dirty dogs was Ollie, an English Shepard handled by Heather Cotterman. Ollie actually ran a hell of a course, but was faulted for the minor problem that he didn’t run the course as numbered by the judge. Ollie finishes with 25 faults in 30.81 seconds:
