Five clubs have reported results for the 60×90 Masters League in October. There is a strong possibility that Jumpin’ K9s out of Temecula, California will make a late challenge to this game.
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.
