2011 Directors Minutes

I move that the Sheep Sanctioning Fee be increased from $2 to $3 per entry, and Section 2C of The Rules be re-written to state the following:

“A three (3) dollar per dog sanctioning fee shall be charged for each dog entered in Open and Nursery competition at all sanctioned trials. The one (1) dollar increase will be specifically designated for the National Finals Committee in order to meet expenses. The funds are not considered a loan, and the USBCHA will continue to share in any profits associated with a current year National Finals.” Seconded by Bob Stephens.  Motion passed.

Emil Luedecke motioned,  "In the event a judge has cause to DQ a competitor he or she must do so by showing a flag to the coarse director. This is done with no discussion with the other judge[s]. We are looking for independent action from the judges. If the coarse director sees a flag from each judge he will confirm then ask the competitor to retire from the field. If the coarse director does not see a flag from each judge he will leave the contestant on the field. The DQing judge will DQ the contestant on his score sheet and the other judge[s] can keep scoring the contestant."Seconded by Bob Stephens.  Motion passed.

Bob Stephens motioned to accept Cattle Dog Committee request for changes. Will allow the suggestions for Judges as a nomination but still keep our existing nomination and voting process as is, seconded by Norma Stewart.
Motion passed

The rules the association will have for selection of judges will remain the same. The board will look at and give weight to the recommendations of judges sent in by the cattle dog committee.

The three things to be changed are

  1. Use one judge instead of two at the cattle finals
  2. Total number of open entry's limited to 50, instead of 60
  3. Only two dogs per handler in the final (short go) run, even if handler has three qualified
