Talking Mira - MACH Bars and Ribbons! (Pictures)

We got our MACH ribbon at the trial this weekend! Yay! It is really pretty with pink and teal colors. We took a picture at the trial and I also took some fun jumping pictures today with both her MACH bars and ribbons.

PS Barley picked up two QQs to end the year, Mira picked up her first QQ toward her MACH3. Barley finished his points for his MACH4 and needs 4 more QQs. Next trial is not for 3 weeks.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Fantastic!!!!! I have always been fascinated by agility and would like to one day get into the industry (I doubt I will with Kahuna, however, he will be very big and is too mellow I think ha) Can you break down what the QQ's are and what they do to receive the MACH awards? I'd like to educate myself Brilliant work!

Thank you!

A quick summary... In AKC agility when you get the the Excellent B level (the highest level) you earn a Q (Qualifying Score) when you have a perfect run. You also earn points for every full second under that standard course time. These are called MACH points. When you qualify on both the Standard course and the Jumpers course on the same day it is called a QQ or Double-Q. To earn a MACH title (Master Agility Champion) you need 20 QQs and 750 MACH points.

I love love love it! I always said if I finish an OTCH I'll get the judge to sign our glove, but an OTCH glove isn't nearly as cool as a MACH bar! And very few clubs give special OTCH rosettes.

Thanks! Agility is lots of fun! I would encourage anyone to try it!

Jodie, I think you should make your own OTCH bar!!!

The bars they have at our trials are just the ones right off the jump, no special MACH bars like some places do. But we have really nice MACH ribbons! Anney makes some pretty nice decals to dress the bars up!
