AMENDED RULES RATG, P&S & UG FIELD TRIALS

Postby Trevor Stevens » Mon 03 Dec 2018 9:05 am

The ANKC at its October Board meeting, approved the changes to rules for RATG, and also P&S field trials and also UG field trials, which were recommended by National RAFT Committee.
Also rules were posted for a new discipline - Field Trials for All Pointing Breeds
Copies of the updated rules and the new rules which will apply from 1st January 2019 are available on the ANKC website. http://ankc.org.au/aboutus/?id=1253
I have attached a copy of the main changes, ie excludes changes of grammar etc. Some changes are significant eg in RATG the one minute 'wait' has been eliminated from the open obedience section, and many penalty points have been changed.
I hope that you find the attached summaries useful, however I take no responsibility for omissions and I recommend that you read the new rules on the ANKC website

Trevor,
I am wondering if you could answer some of the questions re the new rules that are concerning a lot of people. Might put some trialers minds at ease.

Presume point 1.1 x two was missed in the draft?

Need to make clear whether people are still able to continue in novice ratg even if they have more than 3 passes all on land, whilst waiting to get a pass with water included. Rules suggest not able to continue in novice & yet unable to move up to open without a title.

It says include water. A lot of differing opinions on whether the dog must swim, face water or can completely avoid getting it's toes wet.

Huge amount of discussion on FB so would be good to get some feedback from RAFT chair
