The December 2017 Fast & Fun league game was a Numbered Course. A numbered course is always a simple matter of “follow the numbers”. The scoring basis is Time, Plus Faults.
This course for the most part allows the dog to work at full speed and extension. Six performances of pipe tunnels made it a bit of a “puppy cannon” kind of course. The most interesting handling bit probably came from the awkward serpentine, #12 through #16.
The 50×70 Fast & Fun league currently has the largest participation in the NDAL with 200 or more dogs playing each month.
