Version 2 of NAFA Rule book

Emma Mak
 

Version 2 of the current racing year's rule book is now available on www.flyball.org.  A correction was made to address conflicting wording. There was a change in Section 7.6 Penalties for Ineligible Dogs Running for this racing year, to reduce the penalty.  The change conflicts with wording in Section 7.5 (a) Changing Clubs.  The conflicting wording in Section 7.5 (a) was removed for Version 2 of the rule book.  Bookmarks are also now working correctly.

Regards,
Emma Mak
NAFA Rules Committee Chair

 

Version 3 of rule book

Emma Mak
 

Version 3 of the current racing year's rule book is now available on www.flyball.org.  Due to a clerical error, an earlier version of proposed wording regarding Regular Bonus points was included in the rule book, rather than the NAFA Board's final approved wording.   Note:  Regular Bonus Points have always been calculated correctly in the NAFA database, no corrections were needed. 

Details of Version 2 and 3 changes are included on page 5.

Emma Mak

Executive Director Announcement Regarding Mat Time During NAFA Sanctioned Events

Emma Mak
 

 

Recently I have had a lot of requests for allowing mat time during NAFA sanctioned events. This is an ED exception that is approved on a case by case basis. The following are some guidelines for what is looked at when allowing this exception, so clubs can consider if it’s something they would like to offer at their tournaments:
1. This is only intended for smaller events for which natural breaks would occur anyway. I do not want to the schedule to be created with the intention of forcing the mat time into the schedule, creating a long day for everyone. I would like to prevent paying tournament competitors having to unnecessarily wait for racing because of mat time. However, if breaks are necessary anyway, in order to give teams/dogs proper rest, then allowing mat time isn’t a problem.
2. Final permission will only be given after schedule has been set, and with consultation with the RD.
3. As with mat time outside of the racing day, the host club is liable for any damage to the EJS during this time.
4. No more than two dogs may be run in succession while using EJS.
5. This opportunity must be made available to all dogs and handlers - i.e. it cannot be exclusively offered to certain teams or clubs. Everyone should get an opportunity to sign up and participate.
6. Dogs that participate may not be listed on a timesheet for the on-going event.
If your club would like to offer mat time during an upcoming event, please reach out to your RD, and they can work with me to get it approved.
Thanks,
Neil Flood

CanAm Flyball Classic Judges Announcement from Neil Flood

Emma Mak
 

As we start to get ready for another fantastic CanAm Flyball Classic, this October 11th, 12th and 13th, I wanted to take the opportunity to announce our judges. Before I announce them, I want to thank all our past judges. We ask a lot of these folks, and they do a truly exceptional job in the ring. I know I speak for all the CanAm organizers, both past and present, that we are incredibly appreciative and proud of the job they have all done. In many ways, they can be the face of CanAm as competitors interact with one of our judges in each race. So a huge thank you to all of them!

This year, Jonathan Bescher has again agreed to help organize and lead the judges. It’s a large undertaking coordinating all the ring assignments, breaks, backup judges and championship changes. So Thank you Jon!!
Here are the judges Jon is tasked with leading:

Nancy Denier, OR (Region 7)
Josh Watson, ON (Region 2)
Cindy Henderson, MA (Region 13)
Randy Kenzie, BC (Region 7)
Carle Lee Detweiler, MD (Region 15)
Randy Garvin, MO (Region 21)
and our Championship Ring judge will be Chris Carr (Region 15)

Please help me in congratulating all of them! Very excited for another great event.

Sincerely,
Neil Flood
NAFA Executive Director
