Hey UpDoggers! I'm going to be one of your dedicated Head Judges at UpDIF this year, instead of competing like usual. I'd like to gauge interest in how much all you competitors would like to embarrassing me this April 4-7... I'm considering running a raffle so the winner can tell me how to shave / wear my facial hair for the entire UpDIF weekend. I've got a lot of beard right now and whatever you say goes. Proceeds would go to an UpDog approved non-profit, like a local rescue or something. Original beard post for inspiration: https://www.facebook.com/chris.collier.526/posts/10216525030491573 I heard from a friend that this might generate some interest, and Kat sanctioned it, so if you guys are interested let me know here and I'll put something together. Picture of beard right now in the comments 👇
Love the Sweet Spot that Deb Norman painted for UpDog today 💕
Had a wonderful time at H2D2 Spring Fling UpDog Challenge in New York this weekend. My baby Boxer girl loved it and we got to meet many very talented Disc Dogs that really inspired us. Go Team Flying Unicorn! ˁ˚ᴥ˚ˀ 🦄

UPDIF 2021 Point Requirements and Registration Process:

Below are the points required for 2021. They are approximately 60% of what was required in 2020. This is due to COVID and the fact that we lost 1.5 months of competitions in some areas and longer in other areas. Youth will only require 50% of the points listed below (just like last year). The team site should be updated by early August.

The registration process will be the same for 2021 as it was/is in 2020. I've included that below for those that did not go through the process of registration in 2020.

UPDIF 2021 is currently scheduled for April of 2021 however with the ever changing COVID situation that is subject to change. We hope to announce by late September more details on UPDIF 2021 dates and location.

Registration Information (this is identical to 2020 as nothing has changed other than the points required):

UPDIF 2021 registration will occur in 3 waves. To be able to register in any of the 3 waves teams must first meet the minimum point requirements by game (this is the same as past UPDIFs). Those point requirements are in the photo below.

Wave 1 – Invitation Wave
UpDog team issues invites. Invitations are per game, per team. You are guaranteed this spot provided you meet the points required for that game. You must commit to coming to UPDIF and secure registration for that game with a $15 payment within 3 weeks of the season closing (i.e. around January 25th). This will allow us to determine how many wildcard invitations are available.
Invites will be issued based on the following criteria (This equals 35 invites per game - for Far Out Men’s and Women’s Divisions count as separate games)
Team is in the top 5 by the average of your best 3 scores per game per level (same as last year) – 10 spots per game except 7 Up and Greedy
Team is in the top 5 by cumulative points per game per level (same as last year) – 10 spots per game except 7 Up and Greedy
Podiumed at UPDIF 2020 by height division – 12 spots per game.
Any overlap of the above (a team that meets multiple of the above criteria) will free up slots for the UpDog team to issue wildcard invitations. Wild card invitations will be based on a variety of criteria. More on potential wild card criteria in a future post.
Again, these invitations are per game per team. Unlike UPDIF 2019, wave 1 does not allow the team to register for all games they have met the point requirements for. Only those games they receive an invite for.

Wave 2 - Rationed Runs Wave
Handlers get to register for up to 5 games per team, up to 15 total runs per handler. Point requirements must be met by game in order to have that game as an option to select. Game selections will be ranked by you when selected so that if a game fills the system will move to your 2nd choice game, then 3rd, etc. This will be done first-come, first-served. The Invitations issued in Wave 1 do not count towards these limits.
Example 1: Larry and his dog Princess made the podium in FunKey at UPDIF 2020. Larry and Princess have met the point requirements for FunKey and 6 other games (total of 7 games). During Wave 1 Larry will accept his FunKey invite. During wave 2 Larry will rank the 6 other games he and Princess qualified for. Larry registers before any of his games fill so he gets his top 5 of 6 choices. Larry and Princess are now registered for 6 out of the 7 games they are qualified for - FunKey from wave 1 and his top 5 out of 6 games from wave 2.

Wave 3 - Free For All Wave
Any runs still available after wave 2 can be registered for on a first-come first-served basis. Limits/rations are no longer in place.
Continuing the example above… if Larry and Princess’ remaining game still has open spots Larry can now register Princess for that game for a total of 7 runs at UPDIF 2021.

Wait List
For any games that fill during Wave 2 or 3 a wait list will be started in the order of the time that your registration came in.

UpDog Worldwide Triple Crown Challenge - 2020

September 20th, 2020 (The day after the Worldwide TNF League Championship)

Games being played: Throw N Go, Time Warp and Greedy (Games must be played in that order).

With the ever changing environment due to COVID-19 this year will run quite a bit differently. Essentially it will run like a local event however UpDog will offer cumulative awards (based on all 3 games against all competitors worldwide) for the top teams competing in 4 divisions (Expert, Intermediate, Novice, Youth). We will award the top 10 in any division with 50 entries or more. A minimum of the top 10% will be awarded in divisions with less than 50 entries. These will be mailed out after the event. More info about the awards will be forthcoming.

We look forward to some Triple Crown fun come September 20th!

[03/18/20]   UPDIF 2020 status update - Operation "Hang Tight". Due to the latest changes surrounding the Corona virus, we will not be holding UPDIF 2020 during the originally scheduled dates of April 23rd-26th. We are however hoping to postpone to later in the year if at all possible. We do not know at this time when that would be as we have to work through logistics with Unicoi State Park. As such we are asking everyone to "hang tight" in regards to questions about refunds, cancellations, registration, etc. We will make every effort to do right by our competitors whether you can attend on the new date or not. We hope to have some firm answers for you within the next week or two but there are a lot of logistics to work through first. Those of you with cabin rentals, hotel reservations, etc. may want to wait to hear the new date as moving the reservation to another date may be easier than having to cancel, etc.

[03/13/20]   COVID-19 and UpDog events:
The safety of our competitors is very important to UpDog and as such we are recommending the following for UpDog events occurring in the next 8 weeks (note this timeline may be changed as information changes).

UpDog is leaving the decision regarding events scheduled in areas not yet affected by the outbreak to the host clubs, but we recommend you check with your state health department to help make the most informed decision based on up to date information.

If an event is occurring within 2-3 hours of an affected area the host club should consider whether the event needs to be postponed.

All local, state/province and federal guidelines for holding events in your area should be followed.

Please make UpDog aware of any cancellations or moved dates within 48 hours of the decision so that our events page can be updated accordingly (please do this for any UpDog event that is postponed or cancelled regardless of the reason).

Host clubs should publish refund policies for events coming up so that competitors know in advance of registering for an event what that policy is. We recommend working with competitors for a solution that works best for both parties.

UpDog requests that any competitors showing any symptoms or with close family/friends with whom they have been in contact showing symptoms should stay home and not participate in the UpDog event. Competitors who test positive or have close family/friends with whom they have been in contact who test positive for corona virus must follow state and local quarantine rules. Also please follow local, state/province and federal guidelines for self-isolation protocols based on travel and exposure.

Furthermore, though we are sure that you are well aware of the following hygiene and safety recommendations we would like to reiterate to do the following at all UpDog events:
- Wash your hands thoroughly and often
- Keep hands away from your face
- Avoid shaking hands, high fives or other similar contact
- Avoid sharing discs, equipment, etc. with others
- Avoid sharing food and drinks with others (this includes potlucks)
- Host clubs should make every effort to provide hand sanitizer and bleach wipes so that commonly used areas such as the sound table, registration table, etc. can be sanitized regularly throughout the day.

UpDog will continue to monitor the situation and alter any plans as things change.

As for UPDIF 2020, the event is 6 weeks away and as such it is too early to tell whether we will need to postpone it. The UpDog team meets weekly and the COVID-19 virus will be a topic each week. We will let you all know as soon as we have made a decision regarding UPDIF 2020.


UPDIF 2020 Wave 2

Wave 2 registration is up. I've created a brief video walking through it. Sorry in advance for having to listen to my dumb voice.

The pre-flight period will end on Saturday the 29th at 3PM EST. Then we will open up for "The Scramble" at 3PM EST on Sunday March 1st. The Scramble is the part that makes this all first-come first-served, and is meant to be dead simple. All the hard work can be done at your leisure during the pre-flight period.

Here is a direct link to the registration page:

If you have any issues, please email [email protected].


[02/23/20]   UpDog International Finals is calling all vendors! Do you have products that appeal to the dog community? UpDog International Finals will be held in Helen, GA at Unicoi State Park April 23rd – 26th. There will be over 130 competitors from around the world attending this event representing multiple states and provinces. The vendor fee is only $25 plus a donation to be used in the raffle or as a game prize valued at $25 or more. If you would like to be a vendor at UPDIF 2020 please contact Barbara Reinhold at [email protected] to reserve your spot.

• Vendors must provide their own shade and electricity (generators are allowed so long as they do not burn the grass and are located away from competitors and the playing field due to sound and exhaust). Vendors will be able to leave their tents/items set up overnight however there is no security at the field overnight.

• Vendor tents will be near the playing fields and within easy sight of the competitors and the competition. Exact location will be provided on April 22nd once field set up is complete.

• Vendors can set up late Wednesday (4/22) afternoon once UPDIF field set up is complete (likely after 4pm) or Thursday (4/23) AM. Tear down can occur Sunday after the competition has completed or Monday morning.
