Changes to this Year’s Circuit
- MYSPC members will be allowed to count top points from 50% of the total number of scheduled shows for the 2016 Season. If more than 50% of shows are attended, points from the 50% of shows in which earned points are the highest will be counted.
- Shows must have a payback of 50% of entries in each class. Shows must also give additional pay for grand and reserve grand champion in each breed.
- Shows must submit their judge to the MPA Director of Communications no later than May 1. The committee will review judges to avoid duplicates. Judges may NOT be from Missouri.
- If an animal is added to the circuit after June 1, purebred papers must be sent in prior to the first show.
Reminder on Purebred Papers Requirement
All animals entered in purebred classes are required to have registration papers or verification of registration by June 1. At this point, the animal will be shown as a crossbred until papers are provided. Papers MUST be faxed (573-446-2398) or e-mailed (firstname.lastname@example.org) to the MPA office by June 1. MPA will send the list of verified purebreds to shows after that date.
