AKC Agility's In the Zone
March 2011
Hello, Agility Exhibitors!

This is a special issue of In The Zone to bring you information on getting ready for the new Time 2 Beat (T2B) titling class as well as some exciting changes to make it easier and fun to see what is happening at Nationals next month.

Carrie DeYoung, Director of Agility

You asked for it!

We have had many requests for sample T2B courses so exhibitors can be ready for the July 1st implementation of this new, fun titling class. Thus, every month from now to July, we are going to be sending you a sample T2B course. Each course will incorporate a different combination of contact obstacles and weave poles and will offer different challenges to practice. Have fun!

See more information on T2B.

Nationals Results in Real-Time

AKC National Agility ChampionshipFor the first time ever, the American Kennel Club will use Twitter to publish real-time results, making AKC the first dog sport organization to use social media in this manner. Anyone who wants to feel like they are sitting in the bleachers can simply "follow" one or all of the 5 rings on Twitter:

www.twitter.com/AKCRing1
www.twitter.com/AKCRing2
www.twitter.com/AKCRing3
www.twitter.com/AKCRing4
www.twitter.com/AKCRing5


A full run order listing of exhibitor's names, dog's call names, armband #s and ring #s will be posted to AKC's National Agility Championship's web page Thursday afternoon prior to the event weekend.

Followers will be able to see each dog's score and time within minutes of the run and exhibitors will be able to quickly check where each ring is at in the running order. Once a jump height has concluded its round of competition, all results will be posted both on Twitter and on Facebook. All final results, courses and pictures will be posted each day on the AKC National Championship website.

Now how cool is that!

Until next time, have fun with your dogs and stay In The Zone!
