One time I tried to improve the pay structure for the employees at a place I managed. It truly helped the loyal employees who were there every day no matter what but it took that money from the employees that were working the system to work less days. I thought I would get opposition from the ones who were working the system but I got more opposition from the loyal employees who the change was going to benefit the most. It taught me that people just don't like change or they are afraid of it because they fear the worst.
With UKC if changes in the rules and programs weren't made it is obvious the clear path that they are on with competition coon hunts. They can also see where the competition is besting them and how they can get some of those hunters back from them, or maybe even from them as they weren't with UKC to begin with.
We are still going to be turning our dog loose with 2 or 3 other dogs who don't know the rules so in the short term not much is going to change in the dogs actions when we turn them loose, we are just going to score them different than we have been in UKC. I just keep thinking about how much I'd like to have my old female back from the 80's who would tree all of those close and alone coon on the way to dogs when we were pleasure hunting. These new rules would be ideal for her.
