Moving tree time to 3 min and giving a dog minus for getting there after the three was not a smart move. But! UKC has the power to veto. They have a lot going on with AO, then the zones and finals. I think that once they set down and put this all together they will be able to head off anything that's going to cause a problem.
When voting on changes they really don't know what's going to pass and not going to. The countdown and no leash lock work fine hand in hand and even the shorter tree time. The kicker to the whole thing is the assigning next available points on coon. Our personal opinion is that these trees should be deleted unless off game and to keep true to UKC policy assign next available (could be as much as 75 or as little 25 just like always) or scratch in champions casts. This would take the turning loose to treed dogs who's trees are closed out of the equation unless they covered on off game.
In short ditch the next available rule that passed on coon and maybe even slicks just leave in off game to stay true to the roots. it would save making a bunch of complicated rules for when to turn loose after scoring trees wouldn't matter if a dog covered on a closed tree that could be as close as the next tree over and keeps things incredibly simple for judges, handlers and removes the nightmare for MOH and panels that will be coming. We are at a crossroads to do things right right now and not require a bunch more changes when it doesn't work as planned.
