February 2021 60×90 Masters Results

March 6, 2021

February is over, and now we can post the results for the 60×90 Masters League. Three clubs have reported results for this League for February.

We continue using “historical” courses. These are courses that have been played before. The efforts of dogs playing in February earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP), as the historical performances are ranked with the new performances.

60×90 Masters February 2021 Results

The February 2021 60×90 Masters league was a compilation of two games from the Book of Agility Games, 5th Edition. The course was designed by Bud Houston back in August 2017.

Power & Speed is a two-part game. The first part, POWER is untimed. However, any faults earned are added to the dog’s overall score. Refusals will NOT be faulted. However, three “on & off” refusals will be deemed a Failure to Perform.

The SPEED part is timed. This game is scored Time, Plus Faults, Less Bonus.

A Time-Warp Bonus (10 points) is earned for the dog working away at jumps #7 through #9 without fault, while the handler works on the opposite side of the handler containment line (red line).

Power and Speed is scored Time, Plus Faults, Less Bonus. The lowest score wins.
