We are scheduling our State Champs for Sep. 8-9 at Bluff Valley Campground in Zumbro Falls. :D

As always, this will be a 2 day competition with several formats and loads of fun. Camping, dogs, grill and chill, and who knows what else! Bring your dogs, your tent, your discs and be prepared to have a blast. =-!!!
More details as they come available.
They have All-You-Can-Eat pancake breakfast both days for $2.50 and 2 sausage links are .50 extra. the Snack Shack has several fried foods available, and the convenience store has frozen pizzas, water, pop, etc. Zumbro Falls isn't far. Bring your own "adult beverages". :D

Format for this comp will be:
Saturday: Registration 9:00, Comp start 10:00am Skyhoundz Freestyle and Distance Accuracy
Sunday: Registration 9:00, Comp start 10:00am UFO Longshot and Pairs Freestyle

Pairs freestyle is one dog and two humans. Humans can be in as many pairs as they want and dogs can enter up to twice. Unlimited discs. Two-minute rounds. Find a team and start putting a routine together!

Saturday evening after our comp is our big Grill and Chill. There is a separate thread for signing up to bring something. You can bring a dish to pass and enough meet for your family/group or to share with a few people. (example: I bring 4 burgers to share with Em and whoever else wants one, and she brings brats)

After the Grill and Chill, we get some campfires going for smores and relaxing. If you haven't already started drinking, now is the time. :mrgreen: =-!!!

D@D

Here is the link to the campground, including a map of the campsites, restrooms, field, and activities. They will take reservations for #401-414 and a few to the south of there. (#415-420) Tell them you are with the MN Disc Dog Club. They give us a rate of $7 per night, which is cheap!!

Any questions, please let me know!

State Champ Scoring
The 2012 State Champion will be determined by combined scores from three different events: Freestyle and D/A on Saturday and Longshot on Sunday. Points will be awarded as follows for each event and each team's points from each event will be combined. The team with the highest total points will be the 2012 State Champ. Note: Only teams in the Pro division will earn points toward the State Championship.
Freestyle (pure, not combined with D/A score) and D/A
1st -10
2nd - 9
3rd - 8
4th - 7
5th - 6
6th - 5
7th - 4
8th - 3
9th - 2
10th - 1

Longshot:
Points will be awarded in both the men's and women's divisions as follows:
1st - 10
2nd - 9
3rd - 8
Each team that is eliminated in the round that produces the third place team*: 5
Each team that is eliminated in the prior round: 3

*Points in Longshot are a bit more complicated, since there won't necessarily be places after 3rd. So, for example, if 5 teams throw at a particular distance and 3 advanced, the remaning 2 teams that were eliminated would get 5 points each. Another example, if 5 teams throw at a particular distance and 2 advance, the 3 that were eliminated would need to have a throw-off for third place. The winner of the throw-off would get 8 points for 3rd place, and the remaning teams would get five. Clear as mud? If anybody spots a hole in this strategy, please let me know.

First tiebreaker will be best rank in freestyle. Second tiebreaker will be best rank in D/A. Third tiebreaker will be best rank in Longshot.

Is it wrong that I am most looking forward to the pancakes? This is the one time a year I eat them.
