Actually, they decided to cancel Southern Days before they ever voted to move NRD's. And the "new" hunt will be a Fall Roundup held in Oct, Nov or December.and held anywhere in the country, not necessarily in the Southeast. .
It was discussed, then the discussion went onto moving NRD's and a presentation from Jared about a location and a date for NRD. Once the board said yes, move NRD to April, obviously SRD for 2020 had to be cancelled with no immediate plans in the works to finalize a fall date/location/etc. I could go on to explain some fellas did contact a club in middle TN for a different southern days location to try and pump some new life into that hunt, but when that bid came in, it was quite ridiculous in mine and everyone else's opinion, so that didn't help. It's one step at a time as I see it, their was no other choice at that meeting as it surrounds SRD 2020 once the NRD date was moved.
ANYTHING else about a fall roundup, sectional, buddy hunt, whatever, was discussion ONLY, and a committee formed to try and move quick on a fall date for the southern idea. We even discussed what is "south" to everyone because states were mentioned that were not "south".
The association has apparently always been setup that the SRD meeting's were almost pointless as final decisions are only made at NRD. So the fact the "south" pulls less weight is nothing new, and it certainly does NOT help when the turnout at southern days is next to nothing. And, Richard, I've never been to a big redbone hunt and not seen you there, so now that you're on the executive board, maybe you'll also chime in there and be heard and help balance some southern representation. Or even help find a good club in middle TN that'll let us hold an event in the fall.
