             Competitors are advised that the ANKC is conduction its 5 yearly review
                              of Rules for the conduct of Obedience and Rally Trials.

                      The Obedience Advisory Committee is calling for submissions
                                     regarding proposed changes to these rules.
Submissions must be made in writing
                                                    in the prescribed format
                                      to Brian Fielder at
                                              no later than 31st March 2019.


               Once all proposals have been received a meeting of competitors
       will be held to discuss them and to formulate South Australia’s final submission.
       The prescribed format must include the current rule, the proposed change
       in bold italic font, and the rationale for the proposed change.

If the proposed change is to a rule contained in the General Rules and Glossary,
      the proposal should include the heading the rule comes under, and the page number
      from the current rule book.   If the proposal concerns a particular exercise in a
      trial class, the class and the exercise should be noted.
