A solitary club played the 36×85 Fast & Fun game in September, PAWS4FUN out of Kemptville, Ontario, Canada. We are expecting another club to join this league in October… though we’ll lose Paws4Fun after October as the weather up north will spoil the effort.
We are using “historical” courses, which have been played before. The efforts of dogs playing in September earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP), as the historical performances were ranked with the new performances. And LPP is a measure of rank.
36×85 Fast & Fun September 2020 Results
The September 36×85 Fast & Fun League featured the game called Time Warp designed by Bud Houston. This is a historic course originally played in March of 2017.
Time Warp is a simple sequencing game that features two distance challenges. 10 points earned for doing the teeter without fault, while the handler remains on the opposite side of the red line. An additional 10 points may be earned for #8 through #10 without fault, while the handler stays on other side of the red line.
Time Warp is scored Time, Plus Faults, Less Bonus. Follow the numbers, keep the bars up, and have fun.

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.
