-A United States Disc Dog Nationals (USDDN) disc dog competition, with Freestyle (Super Open) on Saturday. Throw and Catch (Super Pro) Sunday.  Both Divisions being a National Championships Qualifier.  Also Novice and Senior (50+) divisions are also available, everyone is invited to come play.  Learn about the USDDN by visiting their site, click here.


Because July in Missouri can be hot and humid, and rain and thunderstorms are always possible:  In previous years (on Saturday) we have taken a break after the first rounds to let everyone cool off in an Air Conditioned Area of their choosing for a few hours.  We then started up with the final rounds later in the afternoon when the temperature cooled off a bit.  If we take a break this year, it will be determined by the Judging and Event Staff and is dependent on weather and available time considering the turn-out of competitors and any delays.  Safety of all people and dogs at the Hot Jam is paramount on our priority list.  


Saturday Evening on the Pro Plan Performance Field, under the lights.  The first ever 4:20 World Championships. 

Time: TBD

As a rule at Purina Farms; please do not put any mats down on the grass.  Also, turn your crates on their sides over-night to avoid damaging the grass beneath them, and try to avoid leaving anything that covers a large area of grass in place over the whole weekend.  Let's leave the field as good as we found it so we can enjoy it's use for years to come.

Rules:

 
General Rules for the Disc Dog Hot Jam:
 
 
 
  1. Any actions deemed by the event staff, to be unsafe, destructive, and/or unsportsmanlike can result in disciplinary actions up to and including the immediate (Possible brutal) expulsion of the individuals involved from the event, competition, and/or Purina Farms’ and may be subject to legal prosecution if warranted by the offense.
  2. All judges’ calls are final, there will be no video review, if you care to dispute a score or unsportsmanlike action bring it to the attention of an event official that is not actively involved in judging the current round and your issue will be addressed.
  3. Any contingencies not covered in this list of rules will be decided by a conference between the Head Judge and the Event Organizer, and only if needed, the involved individuals.
  4. Dogs will be kept on leash if they are not competing or practicing in the designated practice areas.  Safety should be the first concern when letting your dog off leash for either reason.  Purina Farms’ and the other host organizations are not responsible for your dogs’ safety past the safeguards that will be in place for the disc dog event.
  5. Clean up after your dog.  Poop bags will be available near the competition field if you do not have your own.  Mind your dog at all times for its’ and others safety so everyone can enjoy the competition without issue or harm
  6.  Absolutely NO Food or Dog Treats on the Competition Field, this can be distracting to other dogs.  Keep all food in the competitor/spectator area.
  7. If a handler is under 18 years old they must have a parent or guardian sign their liability release form.
  8. Handlers are asked in good faith to compete their dog or dogs in divisions that suits the handler's skill level.  There are some rules and they are often specific to the competition format.  Contact Us with any questions.
  9. Discs allowed for the Novice Divisions are any disc (no hoops or any flyer that is not round) that is deemed dog-safe by the judging staff by direction of the Head Judge.  Pro and Senior competitors are required to use dog specific plastic discs; Hero, Hyperflite, and Fastback varieties, or others by the Head Judge and Event Coordinator’s approval before the competition/event.  There will be specific disc rules for the USDDN Qualifier Divisions and the Skyhoundz Xtreme Distance competition.
  10. Any team can use training aids (not treats) in their round, but unless you fit the Novice Division criteria your round will be an "Audit".  The round will be scored but will not be considered in the competition's placement.  Novice teams may use a "Lure Disc" or other "Lure Object" during toss and fetch events to get their dog to release the disc that is in play.  (please choose a different color disc as a lure disc so you don't confuse the judges)  Novice teams may also use "Long Line" or Leash that is tied to the dog during the round for retrieval training.
  11. All competitors should get to compete in all of their rounds but if sunlight or time restraints prohibit a timely finish: It is the Event Coordinator’s option in any division or event after the first round to make a placement "cut" to advance onto further rounds.  Due to delays, weather, or other issues any event can be finalized after the completion of the first round upon the discretion of the head judge or event organizer.
  12. First round run orders will be randomly selected and then modified to not run a dog back to back.  Second round run orders will be modified to run from the worst placement of the first round to the best and then modified to not run a dog back to back.
  13. It is suggested you walk your dog before your round so this isn’t an issue.  In USDDN Qualifier Divisions a nature break ends the round and a score deduction penalty is made.  In Skyhoundz games; if a nature break occurs during your round time will not stop.  You must always clean the area your dog soiled immediately after your round is complete.
  14. Have fun, be safe, and ask the competition officials if you ever have a question or concern.
