Correction to the 2014 Rule Book


This 2014 NSTRA rule book was printed with an omission that has caused some concern lately. 

Section 11 Special Requirements Dog of the Year & Regional Eliminations, page 39, section 11.09 should read as follows:

An owner shall be allowed to enter his/her dog (or dogs) in his/her home region or regions in which his/her dog (or dogs) qualified for elimination trials, but not in both regions.  Dogs that qualify in home region, must enter in home region.  To qualify for Regional Elimination trials, a dog must receive a placement in a sanctioned trial; the current regional champion is also automatically qualified.(10/13).  Dogs that hold Champions status must run in home region.  A dog may enter only one Regional Elimination trial per year January 1st to December 31st.


This has been in effect for over 20 years and has never been rescinded.  We apologize for any confusion this clerical error has caused.
