This post is for the results of the 60×90 League. Four clubs ran this month, and it was a close race.
The January 2022 60×90 League was the first time we had separate courses for our less experienced teams. This is currently in a testing phase to evaluate the implementation methodology, practicality, and utility for league players. January 50×70 was a numbered course designed by Melissa Wallace. The course is scored Time, Plus Faults.
The results for the two courses are separated below. Note that the teams who ran as Initiates ran the regular course, so their scores are added to both sets of results. The Initiates’ scores will count toward league standings because they ran the full course. The separate listing is for their benefit and may be used later for different awards for these teams identified as Initiates and Dabblers.
If anyone would like to design courses for the league, let me know!!!
The efforts of dogs playing in January 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.
