Novice and Senior Invitational Finals
Created By: Sandra Ross - Fri 12th May 2017 @ 18:59 | Last Edited: Fri 12th May 2017 @ 19:00


This year The Agility Club is pleased to announce two brand new Invitational Finals to be held on the Friday evening of the Agility Club Show at Ardingly on the 28th – 30th July 2017.

 

The AGILITY CLUB NOVICE INVITATIONAL is open to dogs currently listed in the Agility Club leagues in Grades 3 – 5. Invitations will be issued for the top 10 large dogs and the top 5 small and medium dogs to run in a C3-5 final on the Friday night. Places taken from the league scores as at 1st June 2017 10pm, so make sure you get those results in!!

 

The AGILITY CLUB SENIOR INVITATIONAL is open to dogs currently listed in the Agility Club leagues in Grades 6 & 7. Invitations will be issued for the top 10 large dogs and the top 5 small and medium dogs to run in a C6-7 final on the Friday night. Places taken from the league scores as at 1st June 2017 10pm, so make sure you get those results in!!

 

The Agility Club will issue invitations by email shortly after the 1st June, we may approach handlers in places above 10th/5th if the top 10/5 are unable to attend. A reserve handler in each height may also be invited to attend and, if not able to compete will run as ‘white dogs’ before the main competition begins.

 

We hope that Agility Club members will enjoy this new addition to our ever-popular Starters Challenge Final and that lots of you will come and support this event. The finals will be run at full height and you must be a member of The Agility Club on the 28th July 2017.

 

The Judge for this inaugural year is Ryan Hennessy so I am sure we will have two lovely courses to run for those competing and to watch for the spectators. Trophies will be awarded for 1st and 2nd place in each height, rosettes 1st to 4th in large, 1st to 3rd in small and medium. I am certainly looking forward to seeing who our first winners are; I hope you all are too.

The Prestigious Agility Club Annual Awards

Every year all Agility Club Members have the chance to win fabulous crystal trophies, which are presented at our AGM. We give awards to the winner and runner up in each height and in every Grade, so whether your dog is a Small Grade 1 or a Large Grade 7 (or anything in between) you're in with a chance of being an Agility Club Annual Award Winner. We also give awards to the winner and runner up in the junior and veteran league. As well as award dogs we also have a 'League Table' for clubs, please see the club league tab for details.

First Get Some Points and Enter Them!

Points can only be gained in 'Standard' (i.e. progression) classes as defined by the UK Kennel Club, 'Special' classes cannot be claimed for. Points are awarded on a sliding scale for places where the show awards a rosette, and unplaced clear rounds within the course time. Only awarded places or unplaced clear rounds within the course time, in scheduled standard single-dog classes can be claimed. Championship Jumping and Agility qualifying rounds may be claimed for but not the Final. Points from junior handler classes may be claimed for dogs entered in either of the Junior Under/Over 12 categories.

Place1st2nd3rd4th5th6th7th8th9th10thAP11plusUPC
Points Awarded121110987654321


So, if you come 1st, you can claim 12 points. If you come 10th, you can claim 3 points.

For any other awarded place lower thn 10th but within the class's placings, you can claim 2 points (AP11plus) and if you get a clear round within the course time, placed lower than 10th or unplaced (UPC) you can claim 1 point.

Show organisers may choose to award places to the top 10%, 15% or 20% at their discretion. If there are only two places awarded all other competitors completing the course within the course time may only claim an unplaced clear.

Points can be gained at UK Kennel Club Shows whilst the owner/handler is a valid member of the Agility Club. For each point's 'year' a member's dog may only be registered in one category and with one club, this may be changed in January, but at no other time. Except that if your dog doesn't have a club entered then you can add one at any point during the year. For the purposes of the Agility Clubs point's league a dogs Grade will stay the same for the whole year. If you join during the year your dog?s Grade will as it was on the 1st January of that year.

Enter Them Where?

The best way to enter your points is online. Just login to The Agility Club website and click on Submit My Results. If you get stuck, then contact our Points Secretary.

Your points will accumulate through the year and will be printed each month in The Voice. You can also keep an eye on your progress online.

IMPORTANT POINT!

You have 1 calendar month from the date of the show at which they were gained to input your points. After that, they're dust!

DISPUTES

In the event of any dispute the decision of the Committee is final.
