This is an intersting and timely thread:..........a few thoughts.
1. Clubs today either own their own grounds , rely on area landowners or some combination of the two.......which club member has more invested?
2. Many pro trainers own their own grounds or use grounds of local clubs....which pro has more invested?
3. Some pro trainers help at trials, some do not........which one has more invested?
4. A club has its members set up, and run a trial.......if a couple of trucks pro or am run a majority of the dogs .......who has more invested?
The POINT is some people will take advantage of other people or the system. Pro or Am some people are thoughtless and selfish.
Some people give, some take.........some leave ducks around the grounds, some put them back in the freezers. Some
help with mowing some are goldbricks.
Nobody likes to be used. When they feel they are, then the push back starts.
Pro or Am..
Interesting. At last years MN I recall AKC saying that once the 60 is reached, there could be no "backfilling" if there were scratches.
Maybe this was before the close date.

Seems to be the hot topic of the day. Some good suggestions on several threads, but will AKC listen and make changes? Do they even care? Clubs lobbied for limits for good reasons, but who is responsible to address the collateral damage caused by those limits and the way they are currently being managed?
