July 2021 36×85 Fast and Fun Results

The first month of the Summer Season is complete. This post is for the results of the 36×85 Fast & Fun League. Four clubs have reported results for this League. Clicker Pets in Mexico rejoined us this month! I am so happy to see us be International again!

We have been using “historical” courses for a while now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This season, though, started with some NEW courses. I have asked our competitors to turn up the dial on their creative talents and design courses for everyone to play. While they were getting started, I designed this month’s courses so that we could compete on some new ones as promised.

The courses were initially inspired by the letter “E” from Nancy Gyse’s book Alphabet Drills, published in 2011 by Clean Run. I set up the letter for my beginner and intermediate students using different numbering based on each student’s skill. Interestingly, as I looked up the publication date for this blog, I flipped to the letter “E” and saw that she had also changed the exercise by adding a tunnel. You know what they say about brilliant minds!

If anyone would like to design courses for the league, let me know!!!

The efforts of dogs playing in July earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP) based on the entire field of dogs who have competed on the course. The LPP is a measure of rank based on how they placed in relation to all the other dogs.
