2024 Run information and Scoring for Regionals

2024 Run information and scoring for Regionals


All Regionals will run in the following order each day


Hydro Dash

Distance 1st Splash

Jr Handlers

Distance 2nd Splash

Air Retrieve


All briefings are mandatory so that we can have participants sign wavers, take a roll call, check run order and get AR start distances. 


All Disciplines are run is Z-A order. You must jump in the posted order or you will forfeit that turn. The only exception to Z-A order is when a handler (primary handler not holder) has a conflict with another dog they own. In those cases we will move the second dog down so there is 5 dogs in between them. The run order will be posted the day before and if something is missed the mandatory briefing is your last chance to make adjustments. 


Start times are an ESTIMATE. It is the competitors responsibility to keep track of the boards and briefing times. We will communicate via email, facebook and onsite announcements.
