Online Schedule Lodgement - Information Session 15 Oct
In regards to Clubs submitting Schedules Online via Showmanager, the take up as yet has been rather slow.
In response to this, Jeremy Cook has offered to put on an information night for Clubs or any other interested party at Durack on Thursday 15 October at 7:00pm in the Function Room, a light supper will be provided.
The invitation is also extended to Zone 2 and Zone 3 Clubs to have a representative from Zone 1 at the Information Night who can assist with training in those Zones at a later date.
Please contact Rob Harrison direct on firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can if you would like to attend.
Message from the Board to Zone 3 Members
During the last 2 months, the Dogs Queensland Board has received no fewer than 5 separate Show Manager's Reports detailing incidents that have occurred at various Zone 3 Conformation Shows.
Some of the incidents noted are;
· Unacceptable behaviour towards Show Officials,
· Unacceptable behaviour towards other Exhibitors,
· Unacceptable remarks on Social Media towards Show Officials,
· Unacceptable remarks on Social Media towards Exhibitors.
Of particular concern is reported undesirable behaviour, comments and Social Media activity that has impacted on our young members in relation to all Junior Handler competitions.
The Board has been left with no other alternative than to act on these reports and as a result has cancelled the Junior Handler Competition scheduled this weekend, Sunday 4 October at the Grounds Committee of Dogs Queensland Amenities - Zone 3 Shows at the Ingham Showgrounds. In addition to this, there will be no further Junior Handler Competitions or Classes at Zone 3 Shows until further notice.
If these ongoing incidents do not cease, the Board will consider further action including denial of further Junior Handler Competitions and Classes in 2016 and potential cancellation of Conformation Shows.
Lastly, whilst the Board is empathetic to the smaller size of Conformation Shows in Zone 3, exhibitors simply have to come forward to assist at Shows. Show Managers, Stewards and Writers are desperately needed to allow Clubs to continue to run Shows. If you wish to assist, please contact the Dogs Queensland Office who will forward your details to the Event Managers and Stewards Committee.
