2018 WRA Rule Change Proposals
Proposed change to WRA Rule Book, Section 2.7.1 Seniors and Legends Classes.
Delete all wording, in BOLD, after OR, referring to ages within 6 months of the date of a National Race Meet.
2.7.1 Seniors and Legends Classes
In addition to the regular puppy and adult classes held at the National Meet, the host club is encouraged to have the special classes of Seniors and Legends.
The criteria for eligibility to run in either of these classes is that the dog has, or will have attained the age limitation as follows:
If the national is held prior to June 30th that the dog will have turned either 9 or 11 prior to June 30th of that year.
If the national is held after July 1st, that the dog will have turned either 9 or 11 prior to December 31st of that year.
1) Seniors will be for dogs that either are 9 years of age or who will turn 9 years of age within a maximum of 6 months after the date of the national.
2) Legends will be for dogs that either are 11 years of age or who will turn 11 years of age within a maximum of 6 months after the date of the national.
There can be only one criteria for determining eligibility to run in the Seniors and Legends special classes and currently, two conflicting methods reside in the Rule Book.
