It will be expensive! The training director at my club said she thought teams like Lily and me who have advanced RAE titles should be grandfathered some way, but obviously I won't hold my breathe waiting for that to happen.

Another concern raised to me was how clubs will be able to fit in the new classes. I suspect many will skip the intermediate class in favor of masters. I suppose they will limit the entries as well.

I was going to ask whether RAE had been discontinued, but I went back and read the rules to see that it was still available.

I look forward to hearing about your experiences in Masters.

I am on my way to topping out in CDSP (just finished UDX-C2 and have 49 OTCH points to go), but since most of my runs are free, that's a nice problem to have. Like I said, I'm working on UKC and AKC obedience for now. Then--who knows? Maybe scent sports.

Thanks for doing the math, Marguerite--I was looking at the requirements and thinking that was an expensive title! It's too bad they didn't make it competitive the way the OTCH is, where you earn points towards the OTCH by placing in the B classes and beating other competitors.

You're welcome!

At this point, I'm not a fan of the requirement of winning a class in OTCH pursuits (CDSP doesn't have that requirement--just points). Maybe if I were a better handler, I'd be in favor it.

I was pretty surprised at how stingy they were on the points for the masters' scoring. I could wish for ten points for a 100 down to a 1 for a 91.

Well maybe if enough clubs, judges and exhibitors commented about the point schedule they would consider amending it. It seems like it is harder to earn the points for a RACh than for an OTCh.

Yep, that's what I was thinking. I'm trying to get some freelance work caught up and couldn't justify taking time to look it up.

i just got a look at the new signs and glad Che retired! As directionally challenged as I am,and prone to dizziness,i cannot imagine doing some of those! Glad it is really too expensive to even seriously consider (this from someone who was not even going to do RAE,and here we are,RAE2) Since Otter is only 11 wks old (today!) ,we have a lot of time to work out those "toughies"!
