September 2021 50×70 Fast and Fun Results

September closed out the Summer Season of the League. Agility Dream Dogs out of Albany, New York dominated this month, taking 7 of the top 10 spots! That is not to say that there weren’t some close runs! Jasper and Shana Goodwin at third place were .63 seconds behind Chase and Lydia Hofmann. Ace and Brian Wakefield were only .2 seconds behind Gracie and Bob Saetta. Below are the results for the 50×70 Fast & Fun League. We had six clubs reporting. The overall results for the month are close!

The course concept was designed by Ashley Ragland for competition in TDAA back in 2015. I modified the original concept to fit the equipment size and distances required for League play. I removed the teeter, chute, and tire and changed up the numbering some.

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

The efforts of dogs playing in September 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.
