60X90 Masters Winter Series FINAL

The December 2017 Masters 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.

The December course was a Jumpers With Weaves numbered course. Several technical moments faced the team on a course that encouraged the dog to work at full speed. On the dismount of the weave poles at #7 the handler had to consider drawing the dog to a straighter approach through the #8 and #9 jump. And on the dismount of the #11 pipe tunnel the #6 jump surely offered itself as a wrong course option to the dog. The most technical moment in the course was likely the back-side approach to the #14 jump.

Eleven NDAL franchise clubs and between 140 and 160 dogs have played each month in the 60×90 Masters league in the Fall Series. This league has grown modestly 2017 and will likely continue to grow in 2018.
