Impact: To clearly understand the full impact of the Atlanta Proposed Amendment we need to apply the amendment and observe the impact on the eligible judges pool.

The data in the following table and chart clearly illustrates the impact of the Atlanta Proposed Amendment change to the pool of judges available to judge the Master National by region. The number of “8 point judges” is taken directly from the AKC website. The count of “Has run the Master National” is a compilation of data from Master National databases and asking new 8 point judges directly. Judges who have qualified a dog within the last 7 years is derived from callbacks for the last 7 Master National Events. From this group we subtract professional handlers and MN Board members to obtain those judges who would be Eligible under the Atlanta Proposed Amendment broken by region.

See you in Corning and best of luck.
