After much discussion, the Board of Directors of the CBCA is unanimous in its decision on eligibility for the Canadian Championship. The decision states as follows:
Eligibility for the Canadian Championships for both Open and Nursery requires that the handler must have a CBCA membership and the dog must be CBCA registered. The membership and registration must be post marked by June 1 of the current year and sent to the CBCA registrar. There is no trialing requirement.
In addition to the above, nursery dogs must have been imported into North America prior to their first birthday.
Despite our best efforts CKC has decided to allow Border Collies to compete conformation (and all other events). While CBCA has no issue with Border Collies competing in performance events we have strong reservations about conformation showing as this will probably lead to Border Collies being bred for looks rather than work. The board feels that such showing is contrary to the objectives of CBCA. As such persons showing border collies in conformation are not eligible for membership in CBCA.
Members participated at the draw for the travel bursary. Starting in 2009, and until 2012, the travel bursary will be $750 due to the bursary not being claimed in 2008.
