August 2021 IDAL League Courses

The following courses are for August 2021 IDAL play. This month we are running new courses. The course layout was designed by Mike Hughson with the 60×90 being entirely his concept. One team asked for a contact for this month, so I chose this design from his three submissions to the FB Course Design Group. I modified his concept only by removing the dogwalk and teeter and flipping the location of a tunnel to get a square approach to the A-frame. I finessed distances since he sketched his courses while away from his computer. I then modified the design to get the 50×70 and 36×85 courses. The courses are nested based on the tunnel in the bottom right corner of the map. This should make things easier for clubs wanting to run more than one league. The courses look fun and challenging. I will have to set them up in my building with TDAA distances. With a heat index of 114, there is no way I can play outside.

If you would like to design courses for the league or learn how to design courses, give me a shout. I will add you to our group.

In addition to PAWS4FUN, Clicker Pets in Mexico is now rejoining us. I am so happy to see our international teams starting to come back.
