March 60×90 Results

Below are the results for the 60×90 League for March 2022. The March course is the second standard type course for the First Season of 2022. The course was designed by Melissa Wallace, the league secretary. The March course is actually two courses. One is the normal league course, and the other is designed to be more friendly to the less experienced players. Having separate courses is currently in a testing phase to evaluate the implementation methodology, practicality, and utility for league players. However, players seem to appreciate the option. Thus, we will likely continue having two courses for each league.

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

The efforts of dogs playing in March earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP). The LPP is a measure of rank based on how each dog placed in relation to all the other dogs. The IDAL keeps a catalog of all the courses run since the league inception. When a course is run a second, third, fourth… time, the scores of ALL the dogs who have ever run the course are maintained in field. New runs are compared and ranked with the old runs. This ranking is a unique system in the agility world. It allows competitors to do such things as compare a current run to an older run by the same dog or visualize how handling has changed over the years. Honors (titles) are conferred based on the total LPP of a dog as well as the performance in each season.
