Testimonial - This is a great book for me even though I am not a judge.  I teach a Rally class for only one hour a week and I only have an area large enough  for one ring.  I must use that ring for Excellent, Advanced, and Novice students AT THE SAME TIME.  This book is so well designed that I can adapt it to my needs very easily.  I use  posts in the ground and put one EXC or ADV. sign on the top of the post and a Novice sign is attached beneath it so all levels in my class can go through without my changing anything. With my time and energy limitations, this is terrific.  The layout of your courses are so similar that I  can stack them one on top of the other.

I HATED designing these course every week for that class—and now I can begin to enjoy the group again.   You have saved me a couple of planning hours each week.  Thanks for your good designs.  I really appreciate it.
