Newfoundland Advanced Draft Test Committee's Toolkit

Timeline- After the test

Important Dates:

Reports must be submitted to the Draft Test Records Secretary within 30 days of the test

The NCA Board has approved a system of late fees to be paid by the regional clubs in a manner similar to that used by the AKC for dog shows and performance events.  The following scale will be used for both Water and Draft Tests from now forward:

Completed paperwork following a Water or Draft test must be postmarked within 30 days following the test event.  Paperwork postmarked 1-5 days late will have the regional club assessed a $25 late fee.  Fully completed event paperwork postmarked 6+ days late will have the regional club assessed a $50 late fee.  Late fees must be paid by the regional club prior to approval of any further working event.

Newf Tide Articles must be submitted by the next deadline following the test.

Wrap Up

Assign a responsible person to write an article for Newf Tide and your Regional Club's newsletter. Include 1-2 "action shots", along with full names of qualifiers and "Thank-yous" to judges, stewards and other important helpers.

  • evaluation of the test site

  • evaluation of the judges- how well they worked together; knowledge of rules; consistency in judging; attitude toward stewards, exhibitors, and spectators; exhibitors' comments or complaints, written or oral

  • Number of exhibitors from test giving club and from other areas
