Is the proper format for Clubs in place for Small or Large Clubs to survive and grow. Or has that been overlooked and hopefully will take care of itself.
I am no expert but I think with the smaller clubs several things should be looked at. I say this because of know of one club 90 miles from me which is the second closest. That has had hunts for 50 years. This year is the first time that they had 3 different hunts with not enough dogs to hold the hunt.
First I think each club is limited to 7 hunts. Will that work or does than need to be adjusted, perhaps up. Paying the club license and then an additional $7.00 per dog. Any opinions on that.
Guess a method of perhaps smaller fees with larger numbers might bring in more money for UKC. My fear is these larger fees without number increase in the smaller clubs. Will spell the end of a lot of smaller clubs?
Our club has always provided trophies or plaques, but with the fee increase we will have to look into cutting this. Also another thing that the extra fees will cut into is funding for our clubs kitchen. Example 10 dog hunt old ukc fee was $30 now it will be $70 not counting licence fees. So $40 that could of been used to buy more food is lost. Answer is to raise the entry fee, BUT you are hurting the hunter.
