ILR Show Division

May 6, 2009

Meeting called to order 9:05 EST

Members attending: Tami Lash, Tom Rothering, Jim Krowka, Karen Baum

Debi and Patti were absent. Tami noted she would try and call Patti to see how she is doing post eye surgery.

Agenda Item #1
from last meeting unanimously approved.

Agenda Item #2
Revised performance Champion tables.

The tables were sent around and approved via email, during our meeting Karen felt some verbiage should be altered, we agreed and the change was made.

In the small print below the tables, in case of a tie, for the third tiebreaker, Karen felt the words 'followed by' would not be specific enough, and the committee agreed to change this to read:

"In case of a tie, when points are used, the first tiebreaker will be the overall score totals of the highest 3 class placements. The second tiebreaker will be the Companion PR points; third will be the Freestyle Obstacle class points. When overall score totals are used for tabulation, in the case of a tie: The first tiebreaker is the animal which places the highest most often in the 3 classes used. The second and third tiebreaker is the same as the second and third already mentioned. "

The tables were unanimously approved with the changes.

Agenda Item #3
Performance Placement Cards.

Jim wanted a place for scores to be put on our official Performance Placement Cards. After discussion, it was agreed these would be reworked for scores to have a place on these cards prior to approval.

Agenda Item #4
Performance Scoring document.

At the meeting considerable time was spent on this beginning with working on the Handler Faults, and continuing working through the Performance scoring system. Significant progress was made. It was noted that this is a major undertaking and that to present a system that will provide a comprehensive and consistently meaningful and equitable measure of achievement compared to the status quo will take more time. Judges are currently using traditional scoring procedures so there is no need to rush since any change at this point will likely increase the lack of consistency until everyone is on board with an ILR-SD Performance System. When a complete draft is ready this will be presented to the judges committee and others for review prior to sending to the GB for approval.

The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 3rd, 9:00 p.m. EST

Meeting adjourned 11:05 EST

Respectfully submitted,

Jim Krowka
