August 2021 50×70 Fast and Fun Results Update

Apparently, I was missing scores from PAWS4Fun. So here is the update.

The Summer Season is flying by! It was a close race this month. Here are the results for the 50×70 Fast & Fun League. Two clubs have reported results for this league.

This season we started with some NEW courses. The course layout was designed by one of our players, Mike Hughson. I only modified his concept 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.

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

The efforts of dogs playing in August 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.
