2011 Proposed Zone Specifications Available for Review; Survey For Future Uniform Specifications
The 2011 proposed zone specifications are now on the website for review and comment. Comments must be received by Diane Popp at email@example.com no later than July 30, and all specifications must be finalized and submitted to USEF by August 1.
A special committee has been appointed as recommended by the Joint Zone Councils to explore the possibility of creating national zone specifications for the Children/Adult Hunter and Jumper divisions. Essentially, this would mean that these divisions would each have the same rules, jump heights, and age splits throughout the country regardless of what zone you compete in.
This committee is requesting feedback from all members as the first step of this research and development project. This will be a long-term project and will not affect 2011 specifications. As this project goes forward, the committee will continue to request member feedback through additional surveys.
