Another month has zoomed on by, and we have some results to report. This league has the most competitors and boy are they wicked fast. Here are the results for the 50×70 Fast & Fun League. Five clubs have reported results for this League for May. K9 Powersports moved to a different league, and circumstances kept Paws4Fun from competing this month. I know that we are all sorry to hear the news. Jumping C Crew has rejoined this league, however!
We have been using “historical” courses for a while now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These are courses that have been played before. The efforts of dogs playing in May earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP) based on the entire field of dogs who have competed on the course, including historical performances. The LPP is a measure of rank based on how they placed in relation to all the other dogs.
