May 2021 60×90 Masters Results

Another month gone; I cannot believe how fast time is flying. This post is for the results of the 60×90 Masters League. Four clubs have reported results for this League for May. This was a fun games course with the opportunity to earn serious bonuses. Watch some of the videos to see how competitors work the distance challenges.

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.
