2014 Fun Match!!!!!!!!!!! Our Fun Matches are a very laid back, low pressure practice competition. Everyone will all play in one division, and while scoring will be done, there are no awards or placements, and entire event is totally FREE to participate in! :)

Date: May 26th Memorial Day
Location: Lagoon Park - 150 Park Dr, Jordan, MN 55352
Time: Set-Up 9am, Start 10am
Format: Catch 22, UFO Freestyle, and Throwing Competition


Catch 22
Developed by The MNDDC
Click link for field layout:
viewtopic.php?f=64&t=2416

Catch22
The format allows for the natural development of freestyle skills via a toss and catch foundation.

Advantages:
1. It is fun to play.
2. It is fun to watch.
3. It rewards different types of players and different types of dogs.

The how:(see diagram)
Throwing box is 5 yards x 5 yards. Zone 1 is 0-20 yards in either direction outside of the Throwing Box and Bonus Box. Zone 2 is beyond the 20 yard line in either direction. Zone 3 is the bonus box which is 5 yards x 5 yards with the furthest edge from the throwing box on the 20 yard line. (same size as throwing box).

Dog and Handler must start in the throwing box, and all throws must originate from the throwing box. Handler can leave box in between throws, but must return to the box for the next throw. Time will start when announcer/timer says go. Time is only kept for the Pro division to determine bonus points and tie breakers, however there is no time limit on each round. Each handler is allowed a maximum of 3 discs. Teams get 5 throws and must alternate sides for each throw. Time stops for Pro division when the dog and handler are back in the box after the fifth and final throw.

Scoring
1 and 2 point zones with the bonus box being worth 3 points. (See Diagram) Catches are scored where the dog lands. All four paws must be in higher zone to be awarded higher zone points. This does include the Bonus Box.
Extra 1/2 point for catches made with 4 paws off the ground.
Extra 1/2 point for a different throw other than handler’s normal strongest throw. Handlers can show judges a throw prior to attempting it for the 1/2 point bonus if they question whether it will be counted or not or to make sure they notice that it is different. The non-dominant throw must of course be caught to count.

Pro Division Time Bonus – 2 point bonus for the fastest team to attempt 5 throws and make it back to the throwing box after the final catch. 1.5 point bonus for the second fastest. 1 point bonus for the third fastest. 0.5 point bonus for the fourth fastest. The fifth fastest and beyond receive no bonus points for time. Novice division is not timed, and receive 2 points automatically for stepping out onto the field and beginning a round.

If a team were to have a perfect round, making all 5 Bonus Box catches with a non-dominant throw and a leaping dog, as well as being the fastest team to complete the round to get the 2 bonus points for time, the maximum score possible is 22 points.

TieBreakers: Novice= throw off.
Pro= Based on time
.


We would like a strong focus on training during the Fun Match!!! Below is a list of areas we can all learn and help out ... each is assigned a "Head" to help train new volunteers ... no one will be tied to an area all day, just would like members to learn the ropes of different jobs during a competition, members will be rotated if need be. Anyone who attended the FS judging class, this will be a great chance for some real life practice! Please sign up for however many you would like - it makes us a stronger and more efficient club!! :)


Field Set-Up (Brian):


Registration (Sara):


Announcing/Timing (Mickey):


PA/Music (Denise):


FS Judges (Amanda):


Catch 22 Judges (Jim):


*(no computer scoring at this event)



After the Fun Match will we be having our first Throwing Competition!!! We will also have the FDDO obstacles set up for practice for State Champs! All followed by a Grill and Chill/Pot Luck in the Pavilion!!!



Full day of FUN!!!! :)

Darn...would love to have Buddy & Snickers compete again, but we'll be camping and won't be back in Jordan until mid-afternoon.

fyi...there is a Memorial Day parade in downtown Jordan at 10:30am.

Tim, can you get someone to mow before the comp? Still try to come down when you get home. We might still be playing. Or eating :)

Just on this thread is fine! :)

Areas are: field set-up, registration, announcing/timing, PA/music, freestyle judging (for those who attended a class), and Catch 22/line judges.

Anything you want to learn or are interested in helping with ... anything and everything is appreciated!
