With Hoopers and Barrelers becoming a single class in January, Grounders.
We have some decisions to make in regards to awards
There are two options that we are letting everyone vote on.
Option 1: to earn a All Around NATCH the dog must complete all the normal qualifications, plus Grounders AND Gamblers. This would keep the All Around Award as it currently stands with no updates to it's name.
Option 2: the all around award would be all classes plus grounders and gamblers.
we would then create a new award that would be the normal classes, plus grounders only.
Option 1 is the cleaner method in regards to keeping things simple.
Option 2 requires more technical problems to be solved, and awards to be added.
We want this issue to be voted on by the competitors, as it does change the number of classes needed for the awards. It also makes a large difference in how much time needs to be spent over the next couple of months making the awards calculate correctly.
We are also going to be adding some award options if Option #1 ends up winning the vote, as we'll have more time to be able to dedicate to getting them going.
The first award we would be adding is a Non Jumping class NATCH, consisting of Weavers, Touch n Go, Tunnelers and Grounders.
As well as expanding our speed based awards to include more offerings then just speed stars.
