Received word from Steve Herwig, Secretary of the 2010 AKC National Agility Championship about how the Preferred jump height will be handled at the 2010 AKC National Agility Championship in Tulsa, OK.
Per Mr. Herwig:
For rounds 1, 2 and 3, the preferred and regular dogs will run at the same time as their jump height is exhibiting in each ring.
For Challengers, first all of the preferred dogs will run, (4 inches thru 20 inches), then we’ll reset the bars and run the regular dogs in the same ring immediately following (i.e. 8 inches thru 26 inches).
Same with Finals – ie. first all the preferred jump heights will run (starting with 4 inches), then we’ll reset the bars back to 8” and run the regular dogs.
I will be sending out an email blast to all who have qualified today – I’ll be sure to include this information within that blast.
From View From 4 Inch: Congratulations and best wishes to all 2010 NAC qualifiers!
