Master Breeder Program

1. The NWOETC Master Breeder's Award Program is established to acknowledge the NWOETC breeder who consistently breeds superior birds as demonstrated by the performance of his/her birds in show competition. Therefore, master breeder points shall only be awarded to members in good standing with the NWOETC.

2. NWOETC master breeder points will be awarded at all sanctioned NWOETC shows.

    A. NWOETC sanctioned shows will be:

        (1) The annual show held at the NPA Grand National

        (2) Each of the eight district meets (one per district)

        (3) National Young Bird Show (Louisville, Kentucky)

        (4) Western National Young Bird Show

        (5) Regional shows

    B. A show must have a minimum of twenty (20) birds and four (4) exhibitors for points to be awarded for champion. A minimum of twenty (20) birds and four (4) exhibitors for points to be awarded for best young bird. A minimum of ten (10) birds and three (3) exhibitors in each of the four (4) color categories for points to be awarded for Best of Category. (Baldhead, Mottle, Self, Marked/Pattern)

    C. Junior points will be awarded in Open Show Competition Only.

3. Master breeder points will only be awarded for a bird that is bred, raised, and shown by the winning exhibitor. The exhibitor must be able to prove that he/she bred and raised the winning bird. If a member uses bands other than NWOETC (WOE) bands, they must record these band numbers with the band director prior to the show season to qualify for NWOETC master breeder points. Split banded birds are ineligible to receive Master Breeder points.

4. Any person intentionally accepting master breeder points for a bird they did not breed, band, and raise shall be guilty of fraud and cheating will forfeit all their accumulated points.

5. If non-member wins points at a NWOETC show, the points can only be awarded if they become a member the day of the show.

6. The district director is responsible for forwarding the show results of any sanctioned show in his/her district to the points keeper, who will take the allotted points off the show report and record them into the club records. This would include the number of birds shown in each color category, total birds, and the number of exhibitors in each category and total number of exhibitors.

The points keeper can either be the secretary of the NWOETC, or an appointee of

the board of directors. This position should be a permanent appointee when possible.

7. The Secretary or Bulletin Editor will publish in the bulletin the status of master breeder points accumulated by each member that has accumulated points, as reported by the points keeper.

8. Judges must be members of the NWOETC and will be certified in accordance with club by-laws.

9. The maximum number of points that can awarded to any single bird is 500.

    To qualify for master breeder the total number of points accumulated must have been accomplished with at least ten (10) different birds. This will apply to each level of master breeder.

10. In any given show a bird will receive points for only the placing for which it would receive the highest number of points. A breeder may receive points for more than one bird at a show.

11. Master breeder awards will be awarded at three levels of achievement:

Level I - 2,000 points are needed to reach this level of achievement. Those reaching this level shall be known as Master Breeder.

Level II - 3,000 points are needed to reach this level of achievement. Those, reaching this level shall be known as Superior Master Breeder

Level III - 4,000 points are needed to reach this level of achievement. Those reaching this level shall be known as Grand Master Breeder
