Announcements from NAFA Board of Directors Meeting
November 29th, 2008 – Montreal, Quebec

  • 2008 NAFA Champions, Regional Champions announced

  • New NAFA Pin designs:
    • 2009 Junior Handler pins
    • 40,000 - 90,000 title pins to be produced and sent out retroactively

  • NAFA rules prohibit dogs from being substituted after false starts. They may only be substituted between heats.

  • REMINDER! How do clubs qualify for regional placements? Teams must enter four in-region tournaments in that class, but not all four tournaments must qualify for regional points.
      Example: a club can enter multibreed at four in-region tournaments and be regional champion even though not all four tournaments had four teams entered. At least one tournament must have four teams competing in that class for regional points to accrue.
