Hall of Fame
Objective: To reward dogs/handlers who have excelled Regionally and Internationally in the IWPA.
We want to set up a Regional and International Hall of Fame.
Qualifications for Regional Hall of Fame: Any dog who wins a Regional Medal on wheels or snow in 5 separate years (dogs that medal on wheels and snow the same year are considered as 1 year) is automatically eligible for induction into the Regional Hall of Fame. The owner of the dog submits a bio and picture, if desired, to the IWPA webmaster to put on the website. I's the dog owner's responsibility to gather all information/statistics that can be obtained from the IWPA website.
Qualifications for International Hall of Fame: First, the dog must be in the Regional Hall of Fame. The dog must have won at least one wheel or snow International Championship Medal in 3 separate years. (Dogs that medal on wheels and snow the same year are considered as 1 year). International Hall of Fame is NOT an automatic induction. Owner of dog must submit a bio and achievements to the IWPA board of directors, who will vote and induct a maximum of 3 dogs per year into the International Hall of Fame. If the owner submits to have a dog inducted and it is not voted in, the owner can continue to submit in successive years. There is no limit to the number of times allowed for submission.
No active-- weight pulling dogs will be inducted into the Regional or International Hall of Fame. The owner should not submit the request for induction until the dog is retired from weight pulling. This is open to any dog that has pulled in the IWPA and meets these qualifications, regardless of how long the dog has been retired.
changes to Article VI, add section 7 and 8; Hall of Fame Criteria:
Section 7: Retired dogs that have won a Regional Medal in 5 separate years are eligible for sub-mission into the Regional Hall of Fame, in accordance with the IWPA Hall of Fame criteria.
Section 8: Retired Regional Hall of Fame dogs that won at least one Wheel/Snow International Medal in 3 separate years are eligible for induction into the International Hall of Fame, in accordance with the IWPA Hall of Fame criteria.
Hall of Fame Committee will need to create a form with the criteria, with the May 1st cutoff date for submission. The handler will need to submit all the documentation which will be verified by the Committee Chair. The Board will supply the Certificates; the handlers will be able to purchase the Medal/Plaque for their dogs who meet the criteria. All of Hall of Fame inductees will be listed in the newsletter for those who do not have web access.
