The Skyhoundz team has been closely monitoring developments in the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Although we have been discussing these developments internally, it would be premature to announce options or alternatives for our competitions at this time. There are too many unknowns to begin to formulate a definitive strategy. That said, it seems unlikely that testing, treatment, or prevention methods will be adequate to permit Qualifiers to occur as they traditionally have for the 2020 season, though we are still holding out hope. It goes without saying that we have no interest in staging events that put competing teams and officials at risk.
In time, as the fog lifts, we hope to offer concrete solutions for hosting Qualifiers and/or a World Championship. In the meantime, our prayers and support go out to all who are struggling.
There are a few positives associated with the challenges we disc dog aficionados are facing. Many of us are finding ample time to play and practice with our canines. Skyhoundz has received a number of emails and calls from people who are using quality time with their canines to escape the 24-hour news cycle and its perpetual gloom. We are also receiving reports of new canine adoptions by folks who seek companionship as a means of combating isolation. Some of these adopted dogs may become future canine disc competitors, which is certainly a positive development. We’ve also noted increased interest from canine owners seeking a new challenge, not only for themselves, but for their canines as well.
Take care and be safe!
Due to the Coronavirus, a number of hosts have had to cancel or postpone their previously scheduled events. We will do our best to update our calendar accordingly, but please contact them directly to confirm if a listed event is still being held.
The list below includes all current Skyhoundz competitions including: Local Championships, State Championships, DiscDogathon Qualifiers, DiscDogathon World Championship, Skyhoundz Classic Qualifiers, Skyhoundz Classic World Championship, Xtreme Distance Qualifiers, and Xtreme Distance World Championship.
Please note, events are added and modified throughout the year, so check back from time to time to see if an event has been added near you.
For your convenience, we had added filtering, search, and sort functionality to this table.
You can now filter “Event Type,” “Country,” “State,” and “Date Range.” Filtering allows you to only view the items you want. For example, if you are only interested in viewing events in “Georgia,” click in the “State” filter and type, “GA.” To restore the table to the original content, simple click the blue “Clear Filter” button.
You can use “Search” to find specific items. For example, if you want to see the events that Ray Loman is hosting, you type “Ray Lowman” into the Search field and those events will appear. To restore the table to all the items, simple remove all the text from the search field.
Finally, you can sort the table by clicking on the arrow next to Event Type, Country, State, or Date. So, if you want to sort the table by “State,” click the arrow next to “State.” Clicking on the same arrow again will reverse the sort order.
The time listed for each event is the scheduled start time of the event. Please make arrangements to arrive before that time for any set-up, registration, or warm up that you may require.
