The World Cup is over, LeBron heats up but in the south, Cleveland summer is filled with lazy, hot days and knowing about free cool things is always good.
This Saturday, July 17th, come on over to the Brookstock at Brookside. Tie dye, music, nature, food and a guess as to whether or not Trip will be able to have a better frisbee catching average than The Cleveland Indians collective batting average and you're describing an almost perfect sort of day. Come by and say hi to us and mention Examiner.com and get a free gift!
And if math is your thing, be prepared:
Calculating Dog Catching Frisbee Average General Rules.
Step 1 Count up the number of times the dog has been minimally distracted and has been at attention for the frisbee throw in the period you wish to measure. Most of the time, you want to measure every instance the dog has had, but you can also calculate it by one DIP event, visits to grandma and grandpas bigger backyard, trips to the beach/large grassy park, etc.
Step 2 Take the total number of throws and subtract the number of horrible throw, sacrifices to the power lines and instances when the dog was hit the thrown frisbee (Those incidents do not count as frisbee throws when calculating catching average.) The result is the "official" number of frisbee throws for figuring batting average
Step 3 Add up the number of catches in mid air the dog has caught over the period you wish to measure. This includes high jumps, twist'n'turns, ground catches and frankly, anything the dog has to do to catch the spinning disc
Step 4 Divide the number of catches by the number of throws and round off the result to the third digit after the decimal. That number is the dog's catching average. To read a frisbee catching average, view the number as a percentage of 1.000. An average of .333, for example, means that the dog catches the frisbee one out of every three legitimate, well thrown frisbees out of of every nicely thrown toss, while an average of .250 means that the dog catches the frisbee one out of every 4 decent throws.
