February 2022 IDAL League Courses

Featured

Clarification of the briefing for Cowboy Dog:

Please see the picture. The send is to the barrel only. The first time is a 90 degree turn. The second time is a 180. The line going to the tunnel allows the handler flexibility if they get stuck.

The following courses are for February 2022 IDAL play. This year, we will be alternating between numbered, standard type courses and games. The league seasons will be 4 months long so that each season will have two numbered courses and two games. Additionally, each season will be a discreet unit. Results will be tallied for the season rather than an entire year; however, end of year results will also be reported.

Instructors, if you have some specific skills, scenarios, and/or obstacles you want to work when using the IDAL courses in class, please let me know. I will try my best to get them included. If anyone would like to request a specific game to play, let me know.

Less experienced handlers may have a send around the barrel at six feet rather than thirteen feet. Please make an annotation on the map if a handler uses the shorter distance.

December 2021 60×90 Masters Results

This post is for the results of the 60×90 Masters League. Two teams ran this month. Jumpin’ K-9’s made my brain hurt! Unfortunately, they ran the course incorrectly… I was first clued in by an astute viewer who pointed out that #7 was a backside and the Jumpin’ K-9’s had taken it as a straight on approach. I had not noticed this. Upon looking closer at the videos, I noticed that Jumpin’ K-9’s had basically run the mirror image of the course plus the wrong direction on 7. Gee, how do we score that? Hence, the brain pain!

Fortunately, Kayla’s design was easily run as a mirror image. I did a quick review of all Jumpin’ K-9’s videos against all the Jumping C Crew videos. I did a rough calculation of how long it took handlers to do the backside versus a straight approach starting from the landing of 6 to the takeoff of 8. Interestingly, all the times were between 4 and 5 seconds. Hmm… I might need to look at that more closely later.

To be fair to the team that ran the correct course, I applied faults to Jumpin’ K-9’s scores.

The 60×90 course was designed 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.

January 2022 IDAL League Courses

Featured

The following courses are for January 2022 IDAL play. We are starting the new year off with some simple, crazy numbered courses. This year the league seasons will be 4 months long, and each season will be a discreet unit. Results will be tallied for the season rather than an entire year; however, end of year results will also be reported. Additionally, each season will include two standard based courses and two games. Folks reported that they enjoyed the games and would like to have them included.

Due to the size constraints of each ring, not all the standard equipment can be used each month. I will try to rotate equipment so that we can get time on all of them. Instructors, if you have some specific skills, scenarios, and/or obstacles you want to work when using the IDAL courses in class, please let me know. I will try my best to get them included. If anyone would like to request a specific game to play, let me know.

NOTE that each league includes a Novice/Open type course. Team Captains should assign their members to that category as appropriate. This assignment should be based on their current level of competition or performance. It is not required that anyone start at that level, even new members. Please read the instructions for the new fault schedule, as this level has some oddities.

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. All courses are welcome. I will work with anyone to help you design a successful course be it numbered or a game.

50×70 Fast & Fun

The January 2022 50×70 Fast & Fun league game is a Numbered Course designed by Melissa Wallace. Scored Time, minus faults.

New Year’s Message from the Secretary

Featured

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

January courses and rosters should be out later today.

I have received feedback from many of the team captains and players based on the query I sent out a short while back. Based on that feedback and some other ideas, I have been editing the rules. Those will be out sometime this week. Changes include modifications to the fault schedule, season length, titles, levels, clarification to some of the equipment that is described, clarification on a couple of existing faults, addition of a junior handler category, etc. Most are very small changes.

Novice and Open level handlers will get a little assistance for their scores and success. Clubs with fewer than 5 dogs will also be getting a little help as they compete against larger teams.

LPP calculation remains the same. Team LPP calculation remains the same, but each season will be a discreet unit rather than running for the entire year.

In the hopes of getting some more of our teams back in the game, we have a New Year’s gift. For the first 3 months of this year, all run fees are WAIVED as are new dog registrations. All registrations paid in December will be refunded. Funds paid by individuals will be directly refunded. Funds paid by host clubs will be refunded upon request OR held as a credit on future run fees and registrations when they start back up in April.

Until further notice, junior handlers will not need to pay registration fees or run fees. Juniors are defined as under 17 years of age. Their status as a junior ends on the day after their 18th birthday. If sufficient junior handlers are in the leagues, there may be a mini-league for them, but they will run on the same league courses as everyone else.

I will be working with the team captains on some ideas for handling the videos. I want your life to easier in this respect.

I am excited about some awards that I will be sending out when I get them in hand. I hope you will like them. Certificates will also be coming. As I have mentioned previously, the database had some errors that are not unexpected given how long it has been in use. I will be using this data for certificates, and I will carryover all LPP earned as indicated in the previous database to the new one.

That is all I have for now. I look forward to an exciting new year. As always, ANYONE can submit courses for review to be used in the league. This includes games. Judges from other organizations (I know we have some TDAA judges competing) are definitely welcome to submit. Obviously, TDAA courses would need to be modified, and some elements of approved maps for other organizations should be modified so as not to be considered plagiarized.

The following courses are for December 2021 IDAL play. This month we have more new courses. This set is 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.
