This article is from the Lure Coursing FAQ, by Bonnie Dalzell with numerous contributions by others.
What hounds can participate?
AKC registered hounds may be entered without having CKC registration
provided that an additional "listing" fee is paid. The titles will not
be awarded until the CKC registration is obtained on the hounds.
What are the CKC stakes?
There is no separate Field Champion stake at CKC Lure Coursing Trials.
All hounds are entered in the Open stake.
What are the CKC titles?
* Field Champion (FCh)
* Field Champion Excellent (FChX)
To earn a Canadian FCh the hound earns 100 points with two firsts over
competition. The competition includes existing Canadian Field
Champions. To earn a FChx the hound earns a TOTAL of 300 points and 6
firsts. It is not eligible to earn the FChX until after the FCh
requirements are met but first placements earned prior to the FCh
carry over towards the FChX. If a hound finishes its FCh with 6 firsts
then it only needs to earn an additional 200 points to earn the FChX.
The Canadian FCh is more difficult to earn than the ASFA FCh but the
FChX is a slightly easier to earn than the ASFA LCM.
How are the CKC hounds scored?
The scoring system, categories and points earned towards titles are
similar to the 100 point ASFA model. Canadian Field Trial secretaries
usually require some proof that the hound will run "clean" in
competition prior to accepting an entry.
What are the CKC awards?
First place through 4th earn championship points as with ASFA. No
points are awarded for 5th (NBQ).
