I posted on another forum but no replies yet, so either everyone is busy or no one knows the answer. I thought I might reach a broader audience here.
Could someone please explain this to me? I am probably missing the obvious.
1. GENERAL MEMBERS: Shall consist of those persons who have run a dog in any trial, (i.e. Novice, Pro-Novice or Open) sanctioned by this Association within two (2) years. Any person holding a general membership shall have the right to vote at all meetings of members regularly called, either in person or by proxy, provided such member has paid to the Association the set amount of the annual dues in the amount of twenty five dollars ($25.00) for General Membership preceding the Annual Meeting.
(Bold/underline emphasis mine.)
I didn't think USBCHA sanctioned Novice trials. Does the above mean that if I ran a dog in a Novice or Pro-Novice class that took place during a trial that also had sanctioned USBCHA Open and Nursery runs, I could join as a General Member and have a vote?
