Determining Cast Winners – Reminder

Postby Jerry Moll » Tue Dec 29, 2015 2:10 pm

There is still some confusion out there, we get more calls about determining cast winners than anything else.

Here are a few examples of awarding the correct cast winner. In all examples below, Dog; A wins the cast.


Dog A; 25+ 300- CW
Dog B; 100-
Dog C; 200-
Dog D; 25-

Dog A; 125c 300- CW
Dog B; 100-
Dog C; 200-
Dog D; 25-

Dog A; 100 deleted CW
Dog B; 75-
Dog C; 50-
Dog D; 25-

Dog A; 0 CW
Dog B; 175-
Dog C; 150-
Dog D; 25-

Dog A; (25 strike/100 tree) 125+ CW
Dog B; (100 strike/25 tree) 125+
Dog C; (75 strike/50 tree) 125+
Dog D; (50 strike/75 tree) 125+


18. DETERMINING WINNERS (Page #58 Blue Book)
A. Final Score - Dog's final score is determined by subtracting all minus points from all plus points. All circle points count as zero as a final score. The following formula applies to selecting a cast winner, determining final cast eligibility and placing dogs in a final cast. After determining the final score, the order of placement is as follows:
1. Most Plus Points - If more than one (1) dog has the same amount of plus points as a final score, see tie breaking rules.
2. Total Score Of Zero - All circle points count as zero for a final score. If more than one (1) dog has a final score of zero (no plus and no minus), see tie breaking rules.
3. Least Minus Points With Plus Or Circle Points - The dog with the least minus points that has scored plus or circle points.
4. Least Minus Points Without Plus Or Circle Points - The dog with the least minus points without scoring plus or circle points.
5. Dog with No Plus Or Circle Points - A dog without plus or circle points cannot place over a dog who has scored plus points or circle points.

B. Breaking Ties - All ties must be broken to determine a cast winner or placement. Ties will be broken as follows:
1. The dog with the most plus tree points.
2. The dog with the most plus strike points.
3. The dog with the most circle points, combined strike and tree.
4. The dog with the most circle tree points.
5. The dog with the least minus points.
6. If there is still a tie; do not catch dogs or call time out. The dogs tied will continue hunting until the tie is broken. In
overtime, the first dog to score plus, minus or circle points will break the tie. However, the score at the end of the
original hunting time will remain the final score for determining placement in the hunt. As an alternative to overtime,
tied handlers may unanimously vote to flip a coin to determine the winner.

Just for clarification alot of guys around here have this question, can a dog that has done nothing but get struck and run beat a dog who made a slick tree?

Yes, if no dog in the cast has plus or circle points, the dog with no minus, or the least amount of minus, is the cast winner.
