The January 2018 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 lives up to the “Fast & Fun” moniker for the league, encouraging a bit of distance handling while the dog’s path flows through clusters of options.
The 50×70 Fast & Fun league currently has the largest participation in the NDAL with 200 or more dogs playing each month.
