It has more to do with who shows up and then draw for order so it's random. Then nobody can complain if tracking conditions are better in the morning and so and so got the morning and they got scheduled for late afternoon or any of the other things that can happen that people like to use for excuses. This way, the people the have shown up, have their positions drawn randomly and nobody is shown "favoratism"

I didn't see it on the web site. Does anyone know if streaming video will be offered? I WISH I could go in person.

Oh ok ...so a national level stud in a schutzhund competition couldn't handle the distraction while a male in a AKC class can....makes perfect sense to me Thank you for explaining that to me

It's not about whether, overall, dogs can handle distraction, but whether that distraction is the SAME for everyone. So, to be fair to everyone, those dogs generally go last, thus you don't have some people complaining they had a harder time because they had to work through distractions that other people didn't. Based on what you are arguing, they should always go FIRST.

we are competeing...we also have 3 teams from our club entered....

Also on a side note...There are 3 littermates from my dog Cayos competeing. They will be 4 years and 10 days old when the competition starts . All 3 are competing in IPO3. Congrats to Claudia Romard at van Gogh kennel for breeding this proven working litter.
Deibel, D'Cuda and Diesel van Gogh (my dog)....

As for watching, Friday or Saturday is usually the longest day for Stadium work. They try to end the event earlier on Sunday so people can fly out or start the long drives home.

FYI for competitors...It is Stadium one day, tracking one day format for the draw....

That is great about the three Cayos-Yara kids. Good luck to you.

Actually good luck to all of the teams especially those from the Mid-Eastern region.

I will be cheering from afar since I can't make the trip up, for Elizabeth Kreitler and Norbo von der wilden Nachbarschaft, my SAR/US&R mentor/trainer.

Wishing all the competitors the best of luck.
