Special Announcement from the SDDA

Good Evening to Everyone!

1. Please be advised that due to federal legislation, the SDDA, as a not-for-profit entity having passed a revenue milestone, must now charge GST/HST on all sales. At this time, only run fees and judge application fees will remain the same and not have the sales tax added. Any purchases made through the web store will automatically have the appropriate tax by province added to the total. The board apologizes for the short notice, but we have left it as late as possible for this fiscal year. This will take effect as of June 1st, 2022.

2. Since the SDDA is a national organization, it recognizes that there may be different trial entry processes that work better in different jurisdictions.  The Board has considered the matter of trial entry protocols in light of this and arising from questions put forward by members.

As of June 1, 2022 and for all trial applications going forward in all jurisdictions the entry protocol is as follows.
Hosts may use any reasonable method for trial entries.  This includes but is not limited to:

* first-come-first-served; 

* alternating numbers:

* staggered by level; and

* lottery.

Hosts may continue to give priority entry to trial staff, judges and volunteers if they wish. Hosts MAY NOT give entry priority to competitors based on the number of components entered.

In the interests of transparency and fairness, hosts must clearly and completely set out the trial entry protocol that they intend to use in the premium list with the only exception to be the default process of first-come-first-served. If it is not stated in the Premium, it must be first-come-first-served and we reserve the right to request entry lists in the case of complaints.

Thank you to all of you for continuing to support the SDDA.  We all appreciate your dedication to this sport and to your dogs.  If you have any questions or concerns relating to this email, please feel free to send us an email at info@sportingdetectiondogs.ca and we will gladly reply.

Norm Dressler, Secretary

on behalf of the Board of Directors
