It was agreed that they will be too expensive in the future and we do not need them.
Terrell stated we need to decide on where to hold the 2020 Futurity. NRS wants a 5-year commitment, higher fee plus many other stipulations. After much discussion, there was a proposal drawn up to present to Sonny Miller.

Handler is not eligible if he or she has won over $500 or has qualified a Supreme dog or entered in the Supreme Class. The handler cannot enter any other class except the Futurity Class. He or she is still eligible to enter the Futurity Class. The Intermediate Class will have the same rules as the Maturity Class and to save time will run along with the Maturity Class. Jason Terrell second the motion. Motion carried.
