January 2021 50×70 Fast & Fun Results

February 5, 2021

January is over, and now we can post the results for the 50×70 Fast & Fun League. Six clubs have reported results for this League for January.

We continue using “historical” courses. These are courses that have been played before. The efforts of dogs playing in January earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP), as the historical performances are ranked with the new performances. The LPP is a measure of rank.

The January 2021 50×70 Fast & Fun league was a numbered course designed by Dennis Vogel back in July 2017. Dennis is one of our Team Captains.
