I'm going to give you a few days to get set up, because this one's a touch weird.

June 2019 Challenge:

Hi Friends! I want to invite you to join the May 2019 Challenge.

The Challenge: Earn THREE POINT MAJORS. (I know, very specific!) Your three-point majors can be Grand Champion points or class points. You may combine up to five accounts, either yours or a team with other members.

The Prizes: The top accounts will receive combined $1000 in SD money.

How to Play: I'll post a completion post on June 28th here and on Facebook. You'll need to post your up to five account names and the total number of THREE point majors won.

REMINDER!

July's challenge will involve obedience, so start sessioning!

IMHO

I think it would be better to have it just be individual kennels, giving more people a shot at winning.

Using a family account gives a huge advantage to those players compared to some who only have one account. I don't participate because I only have 3 accounts that are actively showing. I can't compete against a kennel showing from 5 accounts.


Just an idea...

I have a family account myself now but only really show in 2 of the kennels. I’ve not participated in any challenge though would have been competitive if I had tried but just not motivated. However I agree that it would give the players in a standard kennel a better chance at the prize if the kennels competed separately. Might encourage more showing for those solo kennels. Just a thought.

I agree any one with an upgrade account has more of a chance of winning, My cousin has a basic account and she asked if i was going to do the june challenge I told her no not because i really don't have any but cause it is unfair to basic accounts

I don't think having people play together really ups anyone chances.

The challenge this month is very specific. Many breeds with large entries will award 4 or 5 point majors with 3 point majors being hard to win.

The same can be said for small breeds that don't have enough showing to make a 3 point major.

I have 5 accounts actively showing with about 8 breeds I think and the majority of my majors this have been 4 or 5 point majors.

At this point in the month, I have a total of 17 3 point majors as compared to around 25 5 point majors.

"I don't think having people play together really ups anyone chances."

Surely it will?

I'd like to team up with 4 other standard kennels.

I'm also Ponds from the above post.

I saw in your other post that in one account that you have 23-3 point majors in just one account, is that correct?

I'm showing in 5 accounts and I currently have 22-3 point majors.

That is the point I was trying to make in my above post about how the number of accounts is maybe not such a big factor.

Yes 23. Maybe youre right..but if a user has five kennels and showing in all of them? We'll have to see. Anyway it will be fun to take part. A little light relief is welcome. happy :)

Did you know?
At least two wins must be a set of three or more points ("majors"), under two different judges; at least one additional win under a third judge is also required.
