January 13th, 2018

New system put in place for evaluating and setting Standard Course Times:

For 2018 we will be re-evaluating course times for all levels, heights and classes.
This will be done over the course of 8-10 trials, each trial will use the exact same course set, set by the same judges to ensure accuracy.
At the end of May we will evaluate the data collected and revise SCT, which will be put in place in August.
This process will take a considerable amount of time, and we are mostly concerned with fairness to all dogs and their respective speeds.
The results of the data will have a weighted average to decide the new SCT. With the weight leaning towards the average speed dog.
