Thoughts for AGM

9 posts in this topic

To whom it may concern,

 As the CD clubs have not asked for submissions for this years AGM I have
a few for you to suggest.

1. All high grade dogs get a start when nominated.

  Eg. If a reserve in a C5 you would get drawn into a C4/5.

      The highest form C4 would run against the lowest form C5.

      The highest form C3 would run against the lowest form C4, and so
on till all the higher grade dogs all get a start each week.

      If a reserve in any high grade race you would be drawn into a
lower grade field.

2. Kenneling times to two hours,instead of the three hours.

  Eg. With split kenneling the norm and kennel staff there all day,If
the trainer wanted a two hour kennel they should be allowed.

        This would mean the first four races would have to kennel,but
the first seven could kennel if they wished, and so on.

3. Shelter for the dogs outside the kennel block.

    Eg. A cover for the dogs and handlers from the sun or rain, for the
10 /15 minuets before the race.

4. Dress code, shirts tucked in.

   Eg.Under the human rights act men and women should not be
discriminated against based on there sex.

        At the moment men must tuck shirts in, while women may choose
if they want to or not.

        In Australia they know it is a human rights violation and that
is why they do not have this rule.

        Most men will tuck them in, but it should be a choice in an
equal rights world.

5. Nomination closing times.

    Eg. Noms should shut in order of race days.

        At the moment

        PN Monday shuts before Auckland Sunday.

        Wanganui Friday shuts before Waikato Thursday.

        Noms should shut in order of race days.

Thanks for taking the time to read and respond.

Wanganui and Palmerston North member Earl Duganzich.

Based on the above.

1. Disagree. Rules, if changed, have to apply to all grades. Missing out on a run applies to all runners in all grades from time to time.
2. Agree. There is no valid reason to kennel 8 races or even 6 races at once. Two hours should be the maximum kennel time allowable. The option to kennel early should remain.
3. Agree. Shelter from wind, rain, and heat should be provided.
4. Disagree. The dress code does violate existing law, but tucking in shirts does not meet the human rights criteria. If challenged in a court of law you would lose as precedents already exist.      However, I do not have a personal preference and would not object to men wearing shirts out as long as the shirts aren't the tailed variety.
5. Agree. Unnecessarily complicates the nomination process.
6. Standardise downgrade points for all clubs. Downgraders regularly missing out in all grades on points.

How about when a dog is put up in a race higher than its grade they should get $20 for 7th and 8th?

They are helping the club to put on the races.

Disagree. Dogs should get paid for 7th and 8th, regardless off. Fail to see why they have to miss out.

it would cost $150 per race ... $50 for 4th $40 for 5th $30 for 6th $20 for 7th and $10 for 8th. This should happen for even race. for a group 1 race the pay out should be more in the line of $1000,$700,$500,$300,$100 .
