Below is a second By-Laws change that will be on the ballot this year. Master Amateur Retriever Club (MARC) is a member club of Master National Retriever Club (MNRC).
The Board of Directors recommends MNRC recognize that a qualification at MARC be counted as two qualifications.
- MARC is running the same format (6 series) as the Master National.
- MARC has demonstrated excellent judge’s selection.
- Passing a six series test is much harder than a double header weekend test.
- By recognizing MARC with two qualifications, it would take pressure off entries for weekend tests.
Any questions or concerns should be directed to your Region’s Director and V.P. or Kevin Bunnell, President MNRC firstname.lastname@example.org.
Elaine Goodner, MNRC Sec.
