2020 is in the books for 50×70 Fast & Fun league play. Congratulations to the Championship Team, AQ4U’s Fast & Furryous, out of Brooks, Kentucky. AQ4U finished the year earning 8285 Lifetime Performance Points, more than 3000 greater than the nearest rival.
Seven clubs have reported results for the 50×70 Fast & Fun League in December.
We are using “historical” courses, which have been played before. The efforts of dogs playing in December earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP), as the historical performances were ranked with the new performances. And LPP is a measure of rank.
