Tika Top Ten Update

SUMMARY: We've got 2 months to our next USDAA trial, so this is the last you'll have to hear about it for a while.

This morning is the first time that I've counted (per my database) how many points I got last year in how many trials (because I moved Tika gradually into Performance Level 3 as she completed 25 Masters Qs in each class).

So this shows:
  • How many points we've got and trials entered so far this year, plus how many more trials I plan to enter this year
  • How many points and trials in each class last year (at P3)
  • How many points it took in 2009 to make Top Ten in that class.

Well--holy contact zone and crap, my database shows Tika with enough Snooker Top Ten points to be in the 2009 Top Ten, but I've been relying on the USDAA Top Ten page for their count! What a dork for not looking sooner. I've just now sent them an email but it might be way too late to correct (assuming that my records are correct).

No, I don't pay to subscribe to their whole web site--$30/year just to look at my dogs' Q records to catch their errors (and a couple of times when I've looked, I have in fact caught one or two)? Or $12 to get a one-time print-out mailed to me? Yikes. Shouldn't they be paying me for proofreading their data entry?

Correction posted: Later the same day here.

I think we're doing well so far, and pending anything that keeps us out of any remaining trials, we might actually make Top Ten in something this year. See you USDAA fans again in July!
