SUMMARY: Statistics and observations for the year.
Trials competed in: 16. My lowest number since 2000 (with a high of 23 in 2003). So made some progress on my vow to do less agility and more of The Rest of Life.
- CPE: 4 trials, one of which was only 1 day. Tika didn't participate in 2 because she was sore. Boost didn't participate in one because she was sore.
- USDAA: 12 trials, one of which was only 1 day.
- Tika: 139, 76 of them Qs
- Boost: 131, 30 Qs
- CPE: 42, 32 Qs
- USDAA: 228, 74 Qs
Tika titles earned:
- GCH-Silver (Gamblers Champion silver, 25 Qs in championship)
- TM-Platinum (Tournament master platinum, 50 Qs with at least 10 in each tournament class)
- SACH-Silver (Standard champion silver, 25 Qs)
- PR3 - Performance3 Relay (equals RM in championship, 5 Qs)
- ATD - Accomplished Tournament Dog (equals TM in championship, 10 Qs with at least 2 in each of the 3 tournament classes)
- PK3 - Perf 3 Snooker (equals SM)
- JCH-Silver (Jumpers Champion silver, 25 Qs)
- ADCH-Silver (equals 5 ADChs -- 25 Qs in each of 5 regular classes plus tournaments)
- PG3 - Perf 3 Gamblers (equals GM)
- CPE CL4-S (strategy games, level 4)
- RCH (relay champion--10 Qs)
- GM (gamblers master--5 Qs)
- SAM (standard agility master--5 Qs)
- TM (Tournament master--10 Qs with at least 2 in each of the 3 tournament classes)
- Tika earned all those P3 titles only between March and September, moving gradually into Perf as she completed silver in each Championship classs.
- After only 6 months in Performance, Tika is just one Standard Q away from her PD3 (MAD equivalent) and actually needs only 3 standards and 4 Jumpers for her APD (ADCH equivalent).
- Tika qualified for Nationals in all three tournaments (Steeplechase, Grand Prix, and Team)--in BOTH championship and Performance!
- Of Tika's 6 performance Snooker Qs so far, 5 have been Super-Qs.
- Boost qualified in Steeplechase 3 times this year--which is 3x more than she had qualified in her entire preceding agility career. ( I mean, before 2009, she had only ever qualified once.)
- Boost might hold the record for the most consecutive Masters Jumpers runs with no Q (36). But we keep coming very close--might get some someday!
Buster Cubes cracked open: 1 (as of this morning. Congratulations, butthead Boost.)
