This year 54 Beardies earned Delaney Points as opposed to 17 in 1996.
Joanne Williamson has compiled the
1997 Front and Finish points for us and Beth Canner has confirmed
"The Delaney System for ranking obedience and agility dogs is published annually in "Front & Finish". Agility Delaney points are computed from the number of dogs defeated when qualifying. Thus, you have to place in the class in order to accumulate Delaney points. All qualifying scores leading to placements count, not just those associated with earning legs towards titles. If you placed first in your class, you receive points equal to the number who actually ran in your class. Subtract 1 if you were second, 2 if you are third, etc., to determine the number of points for that placement. BAD members who compete in the East, Midwest or Texas seem to have an advantage in this type of ranking scheme since there are more larger trials in these areas than in the West. Delaney points are not to be confused with "Denia" points, a BCCA invention, which are calculated by an entirely different system based on the scores achieved while earning legs towards titles; "Denia" points can be earned without placing in the class. These calculations are based on the list of 1997 AKC agility legs earned and published in the AKC Awards Catalogue."-- Joanne Williamson
The top ten in each category have been officially published in Vol 27 #9 of Front and Finish.
The concept of Delaney points originated with obedience competition. In the obedience rankings, points are not differentiated by class- the points earned in all classes are added together. The following is the "Top Twenty Five" for total Delaney points earned in 1997 in AKC agility.
