December 2021 50×70 Fast and Fun Results

This post is for the results of the 50×70 Fast & Fun League. Four clubs have reported results for this League. This month we are pleased to welcome back Dog Sports Jalisco! Lots of teams ran this month.

The December 2021 36×85 Fast & Fun league is a numbered course based on a course concept by Kayla Hartlage. Kayla was kind enough to send in a 60×90 Jumpers course that had some Premiere style elements. Kayla designed her course on paper and sent it in to me. I kept most of her challenges in there but obviously had to adjust for distances and such. THANKS, KAYLA!

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.

The efforts of dogs playing in December 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.
