October 2020 50×70 Fast & Fun Results

Six clubs have reported results for the 50×70 Fast & Fun League in October.

We are using “historical” courses, which have been played before. The efforts of dogs playing in October earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP), as the historical performances were ranked with the new performances. And LPP is a measure of rank.

50×70 Fast & Fun October 2020 Results

The October 2020 50×70 Fast & Fun league was a game called Time Warp, played as a Looper, designed in collaboration by Brenda Gilday and Bud Houston. This game was first run in the NDAL in April of 2017.

Briefing

Time Warp is a simple sequencing game that awards performance at a distance with a bonus. On this course a send to tire (from other side of line) = 10 bonus points. Send all the way to the weaves (completed without fault) = 10 MORE bonus pts. LOOPER ~ After first completed #1 through #9 the dog is directed through the sequence a second time (40 points maximum bonus).

A Time Warp Looper is scored Time, Plus Faults, Less Bonuses. Follow the numbers, keep the bars up, and have fun.
