FCI agility commission's meeting was last week in luxembourg: report in czech. The guidelines about the obstacles will be voted at next meeting. The obstacles for the world cup are from WM metal in germany, the artifficial grass is from czech rep. (jutagrass). Up to the report, the world cup organizers asked if there could be a second local judge because their judge had a direct relative running and the FCI commission said that, for this time, thay would do an exception with that rule and would study it for the future. Nest world cups are 2015 Italy, 2016 Spain (september 23- 25e), 2017 Sweden, 2018 Finland, 2019 Brazil. At the EO in belgium, there was a larger number of local judges than what it was used to; the results were so good that the number of local judges for the european opens is decided by the country organizing the event. The delegates informed that the organization of last world cup in south africa was excellent. The next meeting is on september 15 in luxembourg.

FCI WC 2014: ‘ We very much regret to inform you that the nomination of 2 judges for the AWC has been rejected by the FCI Commission. The CLA (club luxembourgeois pour agility) offer's their sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused to M. Andre Mauer. At the personal request of M. Mauer, the CLA has accepted his resignation and will cancel the appointments where he was invited to participate as a World Cup judge. We apologise to the clubs affected by this resignation. The CLA supports the decision made by M. Mauer. ’. (click). Letter from andré mauer on his facebook with detals of what happened, the negociations done (and not done), the answers he had and the reversing (german; there is a link for translation with bing on facebook and it can be copied and pasted on google translator): ‘how easy is to destroy a man.... The world cup should be my final judge after 15 years, but not even that was granted me!’ The reasons the CLA argued for having two local judges were organisational ones and that the other judge (jos thines)'s daughter will compete in small and medium. The FCI regulations do not allow a judge judging a family member as well as they do't allow two local judges: apparently, the FCI decided to remove the first rule but not the second one. It is a good thing to read all the note with the process. Comments on agility europes facebook.
