As far as your political swipe, take it to POTUS.
Discipline is no excuse for a lack of enthusiasm !!
All I am a little bit out of line and while I cannot retract what I wrote , I can apologize if I offended your politics.
The sport is about dogs, birds, comradarie and our mutts could care less about a ft, ht , hrc or Nara. The dogs just want to work and do their thing - we add all this other.
In my prefect world I get to do my thing and you do yours. That thought has some complications and just wont work but try to understand the meaning
I think this is a very good discussion. I belong to a breed club that is a member of the Master National and so far I have not found one valid reason why they should continue their membership. It looks to be a waste of funds that could be used for health research issues, etc.
I belong to a club that is not a master national member and the world hasn't ended. We fill up entries in masters. Yes less pros but more amat who just want to run their dogs and maybe get a leg on a title or just title. The other stakes run smoother because we are not waiting on certain handlers who are running numerous dogs. We are not making less money and speaking as a worker we seem to finish earlier on Sundays which makes me Happy Happy Happy. For my club I think it has been a nice transition. The best part is we do not hurt Master National by not being a member. So everyone is happy all around
Gentle in what you do. Firm in how you do it.

Mikey this post should get 5 stars. Information from a club member about how discontinuing MN membership affected that club. Great job.

I’d like to elaborate on one of the “benefits” of membership to the Master National Retriever Club, MNRC.
ONLY Master National member clubs can propose amendments and vote on changes to the MNRC Constitution. In fact, just this year an amendment was submitted by Sooner & Tulsa Retriever clubs and sequentially voted upon.
If your club is a MNRC member club, every individual member within your club will/should be afforded the opportunity to vote upon MNRC amendments in accordance with the club’s bylaws. Thus, your club members have the opportunity to have a voice in what is going on within the MNRC.
