AWI season 2016
"WE'RE GOING TO KANSAS CITY, KANSAS CITY HERE WE COME" !!!!!!!!!!
Hello Fellow Flying Fido Frisbee Fanatics,
First things first, Congrats to Kirby McIlveen and Torch for rocking the 2015 Finals and becoming the newest AWI World Champions!! What a year they had.
We welcome you to another year of disc dog fun. The AWI Staff hopes you all are having a restful winter. Pretty soon it will be time to "Spring" into a new season of crazy canine fun. We will have World Class events all over the world again this year from the United States, Europe, Asia, and beyond.
We will have a number of contests throughout the season that will lead Qualified teams to +++ HAPPY ROCK PARK in GLADSTONE/KANSAS CITY , MO. ++++ for The Ashley Whippet World Championships.
The weekend of September 30th through Oct. 2nd will include a Last Chance Qualifier on the 30th , with the Finals on Oct 1st and 2nd . It will be another exciting year to see the best of the best compete for a chance to get their name on The Lander Cup, the world oldest and most prestigious K-9 Flying Disc Award. Again this year , we will invite the top 4 Open Division Qualifiers at each event in the US, and the top 5 Open Division Qualifying Teams from each AWI Regional outside of the US.
This year we will be changing things up a little for The TOSS AND CATCH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP . Our plan is to invite the top 4 highest scored T&C teams from each Qualifying event in the US , and the top 5 teams from each AW Qualifier in Europe , China, Japan and Mexico. These teams will Qualify by having the top highest combined scores from two rounds of T&C at one event . Click on the Rules link on the AWI website for all the information regarding these Qualifications. Just think how exciting this will be when it gets down to the cut on the final day!!
Please come and join us at an AWI Qualifier near you. Check out the new schedule listed on this site . We have added a NEW LOCATION, that being New Hampshire with The Granite State Disc Dog Club. We always try to be fair to all of those in the States that want to compete. East, West, North and South, we got you covered.
Again this year, we will be sponsored by the great companies Discovering The World and Hero Disc USA. Go to their websites and order some great products for your dogs.
Thank you all for your support and hope to see you on the field sooner than later!
The AWI Staff
