					                PICNIC DAY DACHSHUND DERBY
                       OFFICIAL RULES
1. Course and Objective:

All dogs are placed into one of two divisions: mini or standard. Within each division,
dogs will be divided into heats based upon weight. Each heat will contain no more than
size dogs. Upon their release from the starting boxes, the dogs chase a rabbit pelt the full
length of the course (100ft.). Each heat consists of two trials. The racer with the lowest
cumulative score from the two heats will advance to the semifinals (see scoring below).
In the event of a tie after the two trials, a run-off will be held to determine the winner.

2. Finishing:

Each dog must run the entire course from the starting box to the finish line and must
cross the finish line tape. All dogs will be given a “reasonable time” (as determined by
the judges) to cross the tape and finish the race. Non-finishing dogs will be considered to
have finished last in the heat. In the event that no dog crosses the tape, the heat will be
rerun.

3. Scoring:

In each trial, points will be assigned to the racers as follows:
       1st place = 1 point
       2nd place = 2 points
       3rd place = 3 points
       4th place = 4 points
       5th place = 5 points
       6th place = 6 points

4. Disqualification and Refunds:

       (a) Disqualification with a full refund of entry fee:
               (i) Breed: only purebred dachshunds are allowed to compete.
               Disqualification based upon breed is at the discretion of the judges.

                (ii) Health: if any dog is deemed unhealthy or unfit to race, as determined
                by the track veterinarian, it will be disqualified. This applies to females in
                heat.

                (iii) Vaccination: Any dog presented without proof of current vaccination
                for rabies, canine distemper and canine parvovirus will not be permitted to
                enter the race or racing area.

       (b) Disqualification without a refund of entry fee:
               (i) Unleashed dogs: dogs must be kept on a least at all times, except when
               racing. Failure to comply is grounds for immediate disqualification. The
               owner is responsible for keeping their dog on the main floor of the
               Pavilion. Note: no dogs other than participants are allowed in the
               Pavillion (leashed or not)

               (ii) Owner interference: During the race, owners are allowed behind the
               starting box or behind the finish line (calling your dog after the race has
               begun is permitted). Owners are not allowed along the sides of the course.

               (iii) Aggressive dogs: If, as determined by the judges, a dog exhibits
               aggressive behavior towards any person or other dog, the dog will be
               disqualified.

               (iv) Aggressive owner: Ruling by the judges is final and not subject to
               negotiation of excessive duscussion. Remember, they volunteer for their
               positions and everyone is here to have fun.

5. Reruns:

Reruns will be held in the following situations:
       (a) Any dog catching the rabbit pelt before crossing the finish line
       (b) Excessive dog interference: slight incidental contact in which the outcome of
               the race is unaffected will not be cause for rerun.
       (c) Mechanical problems with the starting box.
       (d) No dog crosses the finish line.

Medicine Class of 2012, and in the spirit of fun and entertainment for the
