Victorian Team Selection Process - Messages

Message from Sue Gonelli (1st May 2012)

Congratulations to our 2012 Team and a big thank you to all competitors for being such great sports. I loved the atmosphere on both days. Thanks to everyone who helped and especially Katie and Kris for picking up equipment (thanks K9), Carole for scribing, Roger, Fiona and Clive for judging, Stephen and Adrian for helping with mock trials and of course our trainee judges for all their hard work.

Teams Event 2012 Sydney Agility Nationals - Rules

·    Each team will compete individually over each Trial Course in the designated running order.

·    The ANKC Ltd Rules for The Conduct of Agility Trials will be used to decide the results with the following differences:-

·    A disqualification will incur 50 penalty faults. However the dog should continue and complete the course as correctly as possible as further faults under the standard rules will be accumulated as they occur and further disqualifications will each incur a further 50 penalty faults.

·    NOTE: A dog will score the 50 fault penalty on each occasion that it goes off-course. No regard is to be taken of how many "out of order" obstacles it takes on each occasion.

·    A dog that is withdrawn from the ring, or fails to complete the course for any reason, will incur a score of 200 penalty faults. The maximum faults that a dog can incur is 200.

·    Results will be determined by ANKC Ltd scoring – i.e. Individual performances will be recorded with Clear Rounds, Course Faults, Time, Faults and Penalty Faults being incurred and totalled.

·    After the conclusion of each Trial each team consisting of five (5) members will nominate and discard its worst result. The total faults of four (4) team members only will be added together to represent the Team score for each Trial.

·    The total faults per team for both Trials will be totalled to represent the Team Total Score.

·    The team with the least Total Faults at the conclusion of both Trials will be declared the Team Event Winner.
