The rule book says:
I had intended to look at how my club could save ourselves the hassle of dealing with JAM ribbons needing dates - we have in the past only ordered 3 JAM ribbons per stake and then mailed the others off. This is a huge PITA for us.Originally Posted by From AKC FT Rulebook p. 7 dated May 2009
At the time I could not recall if a date was required for a JAM ribbon, but it is according to the rulebook. I took a look at our collection of ribbons and I have several (Bullet is the King of Green) JAM ribbons that do not have dates, even have an RJ ribbon that doesn't have the AKC logo or date.
I was wondering just how important the date is for JAM ribbons? It would save clubs money if they could order JAMs in bulk vs. having to make and guess the number of JAMs needed for each trial.
How serious is AKC about dates on JAM ribbons? Can't be too serious cause I have way too many without dates....would having the date requirement removed for JAMs be a rule change worth persuing? What does your club do about the rule - follow it or ignore it?
I'm just glad another club member handles ribbon ordering.
