Tika's Championship Journey

SUMMARY: How many runs does it take to earn Tika a championship?
Hooray, boys and girls, more database fun!

To earn a championship in USDAA (ADCH in Masters or APD in Performance), it takes:
  • 5 Gamblers Qs
  • 5 Jumpers Qs
  • 5 Relay Qs (with 5 different partners)
  • 5 Snooker Qs (3 of which must be Super-Qs)
  • 5 Standard Qs
  • 5 Tournament Qs (at least one in each of Steeplechase, Grand Prix, and DAM)

Tika earned the required Qs for her ADCH with this many runs:
  • Gamblers: 27
  • Jumpers: 27
  • Relay: 16
  • Snooker: 36 (dang Super-Qs!)
  • Standard: 39 (dang contacts/etc.!)
  • Tournament: She came by these well before the other Qs.

In contrast, the experienced elder Tika earned the required Qs for her APD after this many runs:
  • Gamblers: 12
  • Jumpers: 8
  • Relay: 7
  • Snooker: 7 (4 of the required 5 Qs were Super-Qs!)
  • Standard: 18!! (dang contacts/etc!)
  • Tournament: Whipped those out!
