Re: [Killietalk] Convention Show - New Rules
The discussion on killietalk on this issue is beginning to go round in
circles. I have indicated that the membership committee is reviewing the
change and we will announce any decision in the BNL. I have requested
that a decision be made in time to do so in the February BNL.
I should correct one statement made here. The rule change that has been
discussed was NOT announced on killietalk. It was announced in the BNL.
A query was posted on killietalk, which is an entirely different thing.
I suggest that people give the judging committee a little time to
deliberate. You will hear the results soon enough.
