Minnesota Heartland English Springer Spaniel Club

Winter Business Meeting - Sunday, February 18, 2018
Lake Front Bar & Grill, Le Center, MN

 Sign-in of Members, Collecting Annual Dues, and Establishment of a Quorum

Approval of Agenda

OLD BUSINESS:
Secretary’s Report – Dean Koehler: There were no additions or corrections to the Summer 2017 minutes.

Treasurer’s Report – Karen Larson: Our current balance stands at $9487.59, which is as good a financial shape as the club has been in in quite some time.

2017 Fall Field Trial Report (Randy Manore, Chair): The three day trial (2 Opens, 1 Amateur, 1 Puppy, 1 Water Test) went very well and managed to have an excellent positive balance of $3607 due to the extra Open and Water Test receipts, plus having all judges drive to the trial rather than fly.

National Amateur Championship Delegate’s Report: No Heartland club member was present at the Nat’l Amateur, so the club designated Connie Kieckhefer as our voting delegate. Next year’s National Amateur Championship will be held at Deer Creek Lodge in Ohio starting November 15th. The qualification is 2 points, and the entry fee will be $250.

The Board of Governors recommended that the NAC and NOC delegations increase the number of trials judged in order to qualify to be on the national judge selection ballots. A motion was passed by the NAC delegates that to increase the qualification to 12 trials (24 All-Age Stakes). To count, they must US Springer trials only (Canadian and Cocker trials do not count).

National Open Championship Delegate’s Report (Mark Rysavy): Next year’s Nat’l Open Championship will be held in Cambridge, MD starting December 10th. The judges are Mark Haglin and Casey Butz. The qualification is 3 points, and the entry fee will be $235.

The Board of Governors recommended that the NAC and NOC delegations increase the number of trials judged in order to qualify to be on the national judge selection ballots. The 12 trials (24 All-Age Stakes) are to be US Springer trials only (Canadian and Cocker trials do not count). This motion was passed by the NOC delegates.

Other Old Business – NAC and NOC rotations – Proposals have been voted on at the NOC and NAC to realign the rotations of the national championship trials (NOC and NAC) so that the Rocky Mountain Interclub doesn’t host nationals in consecutive years. This change has not yet been finalized.
