Meeting called to order
Members attending: Tami Lash, Tom Rothering, Jim Krowka, Karen Baum
Debi and Patti were absent. Tami noted she would try and call Patti

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
"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
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
