Notice of Motion

At the most recent Management Committee Meeting, held 15 October 2019, the topic of late scratchings was considered by ACA Councillors. It is considered that a change to rule D5 would simplify our campdraft Secretaries’ already busy roles in the lead up to a campdraft.

 

I, Sean Dillon (Member Number 2636) hereby give notice that I intend to move at the next Management Committee Meeting (proposed to be held on 18 & 19 January 2020):

 That Rule D.5 from the Australian Campdraft Association’s General Information Competition Rules and Guidelines, be amended from:

‘Refunds applicable to scratchings:

A 100% refund of the nomination fee will be given if the competitor withdraws more than 168 hours (7 days) prior to 8.00am on the first morning of the program.

If a competitor withdraws between 96 hours (4 days) and 168 hours (7 days) prior to 8.00am on the fiorst morning the program $15 per horse per draft shall be withheld and the balance of the nomination fee refunded.

If a competitor withdraws within 96 hours (4 days) prior to 8.00am on the first morning of the program, the entire nomination fee may be retained by the Committee.

If the Committee deems that extenuating circumstances apply, then a refund may be granted.

Each case will be at the discretion of the Committee.’
