From Skip Smith on behalf of the Field Trial Rules Advisory Committee:
Please click here to access a draft proposal and questionnaire (both are included in one file) from the English Springer Spaniel Rules Advisory Committee requesting input from the field trial community. The Committee was asked by the ESSFTA Board of Governors to propose a rules change that would allow professional trainers and handlers to regain their amateur status and to seek input from field trial participants about this proposed change. Please distribute this proposal to your club members and other field trialers that you know. We encourage people to respond as individuals to give us and the BOG the best perspective on the opinions of the field trial community. We ask for e-mail responses and comments by June 1, 2014. The committee will compile the responses and use them in formulating the final proposal to be submitted to the BOG.
Responses should be returned to email@example.com.
Thank you for your help in distributing this information to the field trial community.
