USDAA President Ken Tatsch's July 2016 message.
Were proud to welcome a fine group of people into the
ranks as official USDAA judges after they successfully completed the Rules and
Course Design Clinic a few weeks ago in Minnesota. Whether you want to be a
judge or not, Course Design Clinics can help you up your game from a
competitors viewpoint. Its time well spent to learn every aspect of this
sport we love so much. Congratulations to our new judges
and judges advancing to the Masters level.
Our Instagram and Facebook pages are the perfect way to see whats happening at Regionals, whether youre there competing or keeping score from home. We encourage you to post your own photos and videos to Instagram and tagging them with #usdaa and #usdaaregional. This will make everyone following along feel as if they are right there with you at the event. Check out the photos and videos from the recent New England Regional hosted by Playing Agility with Style (PAWS) on our Instagram page. As with all regionals, you can check out the winners on the USDAA.com news page.
With only a few months left in the 2015-2016 Tournament Season, theres still time, and a few Regional Championships remaining, to either earn your Qs for Cynosport or try for a semi-final bye in either Grand Prix/Performance Grand Prix or Steeplechase/Performance Speed Jumping. Only the Central and Western Regionals remain in the U.S. in addition to the Western Canadian Regional next month and the Mexico Regional in mid-September.
Looking ahead to 2017, were pleased to announce the dates and location of the 2017 Cynosport® World Games. Please join us Oct. 25 29, 2017 at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. This will be our third time at this great venue and we look forward to another successful Cynosport. We also have confirmed dates and locations for most of the Regional Championships for 2017. We will announce when the remaining Regional dates are finalized, but we encourage you to bookmark this page to check on the status from time to time.
We are working on securing a facility west of the Mississippi River for the 2017 Title Mania® event and we hope to announced the dates and location before the end of summer. Remember, you can always get the latest USDAA news on our News Page and Facebook.
