Explanation: Recently, there have been no affiliate clubs stepping forward to run future National specialties, but a proposal was put forth by a group of GRCC members who were willing to host the event. The By-Laws are unclear and seem to indicate that only an Affiliate club could host the National and that the GRCC would not be allowed to run its own National Specialty. We assume that this was not the original intent, as of course any CKC club can run its own dog show, as long as it is qualified as per CKC rules.
As it seems that there will be a decrease in interest, or ability, for the smaller affiliate clubs to host the national we wanted the By-Laws to open up to allow some flexibility in what defined the Host.
Added Rally as a required event as it would be relevant for people trying for the Eileen Battley award.
