Important Notice to MNRC Clubs: Proposed By-Law Changes

The Master National Retriever ClubAll Master National Retriever Club contacts and delegates have been emailed information about two proposed changes to the MNRC By-Laws.

One  proposal made by the MNRC Board of Directors and supported by several clubs has a change to the current by-laws that would exempt Hall of Fame dogs (MNH title holders) from having to re-qualify for the Master National each year.

This By-Law change would require a dog to pass 6 of 8 Master Hunt Tests at MNRC clubs to qualify for the Master National event each qualifying year.

  1. Paul McGinnis says:

    Why are we voting on a rule change proposal when the results of the “Strategic Proposals Survey” have not been published as promised? What if we are voting to change the entry requirements for the MN when another method may have been recommended by a majority of those who responded to the survey. I hate to think that the MN BOD is trying to pull a fast one here.
