American Field

Early Returns in Nomination Balloting

Field Trial Hall of Fame

Jul 13, 2017

The first of two official Field Trial Hall of Fame nomination ballots appeared in the issue of June 24; the second ballot was carried in the printed issue of July 1-8. Remarkably, some readers must have received their issues promptly, because ballots came in quickly with the names of nominees for the Field Trial Hall of Fame.

As was noted in the two issues that carried the official ballots, readers were given the opportunity to vote for two Dogs and two Persons for Hall of Fame recognition. It was also noted that two official ballots are made available under the assumption that there is more than one person in a household involved in the field trial sport and who is desirous of voting.

When all ballots have been received and counted by the deadline date of July 17, the names of the leading nominees (top ten) will be sent to the members of the Election Committee who are entrusted with the responsibility of voting for two Dogs and two Persons for Hall of Fame honors. Candidates must receive majority support from Election Committee members for election.

Included here are the early returns in the nomination voting for nominees with three or more votes.
