Background:  Eight (8) Helpers submitted their qualifications to be considered for pre-selection to perform the helper work at the USCA 2016 German Shepherd Dog IPO3 Championship.  After reviewing the qualifications of the Helpers, each Helper Committee Member confidentially provided the Helper Program Director/Committee Chair with their four (4) Helpers for the event.  The above referenced Helpers had the highest total number of votes.   Final selection [i.e., front-half, back-half and alternate(s)] will be determined by helper tryouts at the Championship as outlined in the USCA Helper Program.  The remaining Helpers who were not pre-selected were notified by email of such, thanked for submitting their qualifications and supporting the USCA Helper Program
