RA LEADERBOARD  See how well you're going ...or not!

NATIONAL SCORES FOR RETRIEVING TRIAL PLACEGETTERS (YEAR TO DATE)
The Retrieving Australia Leaderboard tracks the progress of dogs who place in Retrieving Trials over the course of a calendar year, displaying positions on a competition ladder. Details on the scoring system used appear below.


Data may take a few moments to load. Use the scroll bars to reveal all listings.

HOW TO READ THE LEADERBOARD

Gundogs that have place 1st, 2nd or 3rd at a trial during the current year appear listed in ascending order based on total credits accumulated to date. Scores are calculated using the following criteria:
KEY N1 N2 N3 R1 R2 R3  A1  A2  A3 C1 C2 C3
STAKE NOV NOV NOV RES RES RES  AA  AA  AA CHAMP CHAMP CHAMP
PLACE 1st 2nd 3rd 1st 2nd 3rd 1st 2nd 3rd 1st 2nd 3rd
CREDIT 3 2 1 6 5 4 9 8 7 12 11 10
KEYs shown indiciate the number of places a dog has obtianed in each level of competition. Eg a "2" in the R1 column indicates two 1st place Restricted wins, which would contribute 12 credits to the total annual score.

"RANK" indicates a dog's present position on the competition ladder.

The database also seperately records points awarded by a Judge corresponding with each placing. "MTP" reports the median (Mn) of all trial points a dog has recieved during a calendar year. Median Trial Points do not count towards positioning on the ladder but may provide an alternative measure of a dog's performance for comparisons. 

To Check Correctness of Entries:
(1) Open the "RT-TRIALS INDEX". Select the appropriate State Tab at the bottom. Scroll to a trial listing of interest and note the "Leaderboard" column for status of trial results. "Complete" indicates that results have been entered into the database.
(2) Note the "TRL#" ID number for trials that a dog has placed in.
(3) Return to the LEADERBOARD (above). Open the "PLACINGS" Tab. Dogs are listed in alpha order. Scroll across to the "Places" columns to the check accuracy of entries. Placings appear next to their respective trial numbers followed by the trial points awarded by the Judge (where provided).

Any errors noted in the Leaderboard should be notified to retrievingaustralia@gmail.com for recification.

ABOUT THE RA LEADERBOARD
Registered gundogs competing in Novice, Restricted, All Age and Championship Retrieving Trial stakes conducted under the ANKC Rules for the Conduct of Retrieving Trials are awarded credits for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places as shown above. Credits are not awarded for events that have not been sanctioned by State control bodies (e.g. Sweepstakes) or for events that are not open to all Gundog breeds in ANKC Group 3. Scores are compiled based on results published on the Retrieving Australia website “Retrieving Trial Schedules and Results” Forum and must be able to be verified. Results are entered into the database as soon as is practical after posting on the RA website. The Administrator of the Retrieving Australia website (or delegate) varifies the final rankings at the end of each trialling season. Cut-off for inclusion of results is 15 days following the last eligible retrieving trial listed for the year. Notification of the highest scored dog (Top Dog) and final rankings of all other place-getters will be published on Retrieving Australia.
