    DefaultHoopers info

    Some of you were curious about what the hoops for hoopers look like. Here is a link to Murray's photo (I haven't received it yet so I can't scan it). It's a good one because you can see several of the criteria for the game.

    http://www.photoreflect.com/pr3/phot...spx?pc=4782386

    In this photo we were doing the test designated by the purple cones (each test is designated by a different set of colored cones).

    You can see that the test hoops are all red and the same hoops can be used for multiple tests (one of the hoops has a green and purple cone).

    You can see a green hoop in the back on the far right. Green hoops designate an "outside" hoop. You have to take 3 green hoops in the same direction before starting a test.

    Other clubs may use different color hoops/cones. This is just the color our club chose.

    I guess if you are colored blind you are screwed in hoopers.

    What the heck is "hoopers"? Emilu loves to jump through the hula hoop - it was the first trick I taught her - she would love "hoops" ;D

    Hoopers is a new NADAC class. Sharon is always coming up with new games. Some people like that about NADAC (me) and others don't. How boring would it be to do the same games day after day, year after year, dog after dog?

    I posted the description here... https://www.justlabradors.com/forum/i...c,59582.0.html

    WOW! Hoopers looks like great fun - I'll bet even my almost 12 year old guy could do it. I'd have to get that color coded thing down - but I suspect after a couple of runs and by watching an "expert" or two run the course, one would figure it out pretty quick. Thanks for posting a picture - I immediately could see the game. B

    You know, I really didn't pay attention to the colors at all. I walked the course I wanted to run then when we run all the other hoops fade out of my sight. It's weird...like tunnel vision I guess. I really only see the hoops that I plan to run. The problem occurs when Murray decides to run something different. You don't NQ if you go back and take 3 green hoops to start the sequence again but after the 3rd or 4th time he did that during our first run my brain was in meltdown mode. I really can't handle those "make up your own course on the fly" classes like snooker (except AKC FAST which doesn't have as many rules). As long as Murray does what I plan, we do fine. ;D

    Lydia - Thanks for the additional info. I get what you say - if the course goes as you plan it, the color coding can be ignored. Its only when the "runnee" decides on a different plan of action that the colors make a difference. I'll have to find a NADAC trial near Cleveland and watch a couple of classes to get the picture. I've only tried AKC FAST once and Gamblers a couple of times at an Australian Shepherd Club trial. Fun but not as easy as I would have hoped. B
