Any dog at the tree after the judge arrives would get 25 points assigned, regardless if only one dog was declared treed or three dogs were declared treed on that tree. After 2 minutes, next available is 25, so that is what they would receive. This was confirmed.
In the past dogs were assigned next available of 75, 50 or 25 on off game and slicks depending upon what was actually declared treed, this was even during the course of the super slams that had a 2 minute countdown. The reason being that it is not up to a judge to determine what time a dog actually arrived at a tree it was not declared treed on, much of the time it is before time expires and for whatever reason the handler has choose not to tree in. With the enactment of no leash lock, shortened tree time and the countdown the way to make it run the smoothest without requiring complicated rules is for everything, leaving an exception of off game is to drop this one change and allow tree points to be deleted. Keeping the off game exception stays true to UKC's roots and delete would allow for the no leash lock to work successfully as intended. I realize the intent of the next available on coons was that if it is after time is up they should have been there faster and it also punishes the run around barking and covering dogs and upon turning in ballots no one knows exactly what is going to pass or not but with this 4 rule combination there is one that doesn't fit and this rule is it. Assigning 25 instead of a true next available still does not fix this issue of re-cutting to dogs that may be treed as close as the next tree over, there is a reason that where a no leash lock is utilized these points are deleted. We are at a crossroads here and have a one shot at getting it right this is the easiest and most simple solution, keep it uncomplicated. Something I do hope you all will consider.
