This caused an uproar with AKC and a letter disclaimer was then sent out to all current judges.

    And why would judges do that, Pat??? Either 3rd and 4th deserved 1st and 2nd...then 2 JAMs 3rd and 4th...or? Crazy!! I think this particular trial came up some time ago on RTF in a thread, sounds very familiar.

    I think it's worded that you can't skip placements. Not that 1st and 2nd must be awarded. Ie. if 1 placement is given if must be a 1st. If 2 are given they must be 1st and 2nd. etc.

    Ken, again congratulations on Blaze's open win & FC and Patron's amateur win. You had an excellent weekend! Except for Friday's weather, the trial was wonderful. Grounds terrific, the open and amateur judges set up some very nice challenging tests, the Tar Heel Club worked extremely hard and everything ran smoothly. Thank you all for putting on a wonderful trial. Also, I just found out that the amateur 2nd also qualified Newt Cropper & Getty for the National Amateur.

    Thanks Wendy! Friday was a bit trying due to the weather, but the next two days made up for it. Thanks to our judges and contestants for making it a successful weekend.

    That is not correct. Judges may withhold all placements or any placements, but they cannot have vacant placements. So, judges could not award a 1st or 2nd in a Q, but they could not give out any other placements--they would have to withhold all. They could award 1st and not 2nd, or whatever but once a placement is withheld, no further placements or JAMS can be awarded.
