Effective January 1, 2018 the PKC Regions have been reorganized and reduced to two (2) regions; Northern Region and Southern Region. The language below replaces the language in the PKC Rules and Policies Manual (Brown Book); Page 6.
REGIONAL LEADER AWARD
The Regional Leader will be the dog that has earned the most in PKC Open Event awards from January 1st until December 31st of each Competition Year, provided a minimum of twenty (20%) of its' earnings were earned at events held within its' home region. Each Regional Leader shall receive twenty (20%) of its' regions' championship escrow, to be paid by January 1st following the close of each competition year, when possible, and after its' earnings and eligibility have been verified by PKC.
Regional Champions shall be determined by conducting an elimination event of the top sixteen (16) Open Event winners from the previous year. First Round will use Hunting Judges, and Finals will be conducted with Non-hunting Judges. The National Directors shall determine the date and location of the hunt within each region. All Regional Championships will be scheduled from the beginning of February until the weekend of the World Hunt. The event shall be conducted in conjunction with other events at the Regional Hunt. The entry fee for any Regional Championship shall be $25. The purse for each PKC Regional Championship will be determined by the amount in the escrow fund from the previous year. A top twenty (20) listing will be published monthly in the RABBIT HUNTER. Competition year will begin on January 1st and end on December 31st. The top sixteen (16) will be invited to the Regional Championship elimination the following year. In the event one (1) of the top sixteen (16) is unable to compete, places down to 24th place may move up to replace one that cannot compete in the elimination. Regional Champions will be eligible to advance to the National Championship. Awards will be a minimum of sixty (60%) percent of the association escrow fund. This sixty (60%) percent will be divided as follows:
Regional Leader............20%; Regional Championship............80%
REGION OF RESIDENCY
A dog will be listed in the standings in the region of the residence of the owner on record in the PKC database. In order for the region of residency of a specific dog to change during the course of a competition season due to a change of ownership, the dog must earn $1 more in PKC Open Event awards after the date of the ownership transfer than it had previously earned in the region of the previous owner. In situations involving joint/kennel membership owned dogs, dog will be assigned the region of residency recorded in the PKC database for the joint/kennel membership. In the event more than one (1) dog is owned by a joint/kennel membership, the state of residency of all dogs owned by the respective joint/kennel membership must be the same. Should the region of residency of the owner of any dog change, the same requirements shall apply. The National Association and/or PKC retains the authority to determine the region of competition for all dogs.
The states of Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and all of the New England States shall be combined to form the Northern Region.
The states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas shall be combined to form the Southern Region.
