February 2023 40x85 Results

Month 2! This month we played a game called Black Hole. You need to be careful not to get sucked into the black hole tunnels!

Everyone ran the same course this month.

40x85 Courses for February 2023

Briefing: Complete the numbered course with the fastest time. Avoid those looming black hole tunnels.

Key Points:

Complete the numbered sequence. There are no refusals; dropped bars earn a 5-point fault. Wrong courses DO NOT apply except to the tunnels; however, the wrong course must be fixed or you will earn a 20-point failure to perform. Using a food or toy earns a single 5-point fault. If the dog takes a black hole (commits with all four paws), a wrong course (5-point fault) is earned, AND the dog must repeat the tunnel (either direction) before continuing on course.


Scoring: Time, plus faults.
