19 What are the ASFA titles?

Field Champion (FCh)
Competes against other hounds of the same breed in the "Open
stake". To earn the title the hound must accumulate 100 breed
points and earn 2 first placements or 1 first and 2 second
placements over competition that receives qualifying scores or
that is dismissed. A first over a non-qualifying scoring hound
doesn't count but if he attacks your hound and is dismissed
then the hound counts. The maximum score is 100 points per
judge. To achieve a qualifying score the hound must receive at
least half this total. These judges-score points are different
from the breed points mentioned above. Best In Field (BIF)
determined by running against the winner of another breed will
count as a first if the hound winning BIF was the only entry in
its breed. (For example, if a single Saluki is entered, but
wins BIF by defeating the best of 17 Whippets, it is credited
with a "first over competition".)

Lure Courser of Merit (LCM)
Competes against other hounds of the same breed in the "Field
Champion stake". To earn the title the hound must accumulate
300 breed points and earn 4 first placements. Each first
placement must be over at least one competitor earning a
qualify score.The hound may earn multiple LCM's. Each requires
4 firsts out of the Field Champion stake and an additional 300
points. At this time the LCM is the most difficult lure
coursing title to earn.
