It seems that we are encountering problems with some of the European Championship shows. As IKGH President I will send several messages to remind everyone of the rules for organizing the European Championships shows so that future shows are aware of and have no reason to depart from their agreed responsibilities and requirements.
Some shows are over subscribed and there is a problem that there are not enough tanks.
It is a requirement that no breeder is refused entry. This means one entry must be available to every breeder for each EC contest, the broad tails, the sword tails and the short tails.
The organisers may limit the number of entries from each breeder.
If a breeder is refused entry then his standing in the European Championship is prejudiced. There may be accusations that this is deliberate to personally prejudice the breeder or to prejudice the breeders club from being awarded an EC status for the following year.
If a breeder is excluded from a EC show then there is no alternative but to withdraw EC status from that show so that everyone remains equal.
This unwanted action would result in disappointment and frustration from the other breeders who entered the show when assuming the EC status, and then the blame can only be directed to the show organisers for failing to adhere to this very important rule.
