USCA sponsorship for Highest Scoring Breed Surveyed Dog at a Regional Championship

EB #01-14

Motion: by Vice President Frank Phillips, seconded by Sean O’Kane, Treasurer, USCA will sponsor a trophy for each Region, for the Highest Scoring Breed Surveyed Dog in a Regional Championship. 

 Background: USCA will spend up to $1500 total for ten (10) trophies for each Regional Championship, to be awarded to the Highest Scoring Breed Surveyed Dog at that Championship.  The WUSV is progressing towards the requirement of all dogs being surveyed competing in the Championship.  USCA should follow suit and begin the promotion of the surveyed/koer’d GSD.   

 Vote Results: 18-YES (Jim Alloway, Frank Phillips, Sean O’Kane, Nathaniel Roque, Deb Krsnich, Claudia Romard, Dennis Vander Linde, Jen Acevedo, Arthur Collins, Mark Gomersall, Mark Hamilton, Scott Hedger, Gail Kendall, Dena McGowan, Mark Scarberry, Don Yelle) 

2-NO  (Mike Diehl, Michele Scarberry)    *Comments

“The purpose of the Survey is to select from the breed registry, dogs that demonstrate temperament, performance ability, and anatomical structure, that are suitable for breeding, for the preservation and improvement of the breed. NOT for a prize!  Spending this money is nonsense.”  “Its a shame that we have to give a trophy to our competitors, to do the right thing for the breed.”
