Our Vice President Frank Phillips attended the March FCI meeting. The following is a summary of the proposed changes to the IPO rules from the FCI Working Commission and addtional notes from the Vice President.
AWDF Selection of IPO-FH World Team
The IPO-FH world team will be the top passing finishers at the AWDF National FH Championships. In the event that AWDF does not hold a National FH championship or a full team cannot be filled from the AWDF Championship then the following point system will be used for the remaining teams.
Teams must submit copies of FCI Registration, all pages in scorebook by September 1 of the calendar year prior to the IPO-FH World Championships they are submitting for. Teams may use up to four (4) passing FH1, FH2 or IPO-FH titles earned in the previous 12 months (September 1 of the previous year to August 31). In the event there is a tie for total points (In the following point system) then the highest pass/fail ratio for ALL FH trials in the past 12 months will break the tie. In the event there is still a tie then it will go to total points (from trial scores) of the submitted trials (max 4). If still tied, the spot will go to youngest dog.
FH1 FH2 IPO-FH
V - 4 Points V - 6 Points V - 8 Points
SG- 3 Points SG- 5 Points SG- 7 Points
G - 2 Points G - 4 Points G - 6 Points
S - 1 Points S - 3 Points S - 4 Points
AWDF Team Selection for the 2017 FCI World Tracking Championship
The AWDF Executive Board and its Delegates passed Ballot#2-2016
12 yes 2 no 7 no response; approving the use of a point system as a method to select the World Tracking Team in the event that it does not host a National Tracking Championship.
More information will be available soon.
AWDF 2016 Tracking Championship
From the Executive Board
A final request asking for bids from groups interested in hosting the fall 2016 FH Championship. If the AWDF doesn't have a viable bid by June 19, 2016, the event will be cancelled for 2016. Because this is our qualifying event, that also means that we will most probably not be sending a team from the US to the FCI FH championship in the coming year.
