2023 CCA Facebook Futurity (or, the My Puppy Is Better Than Your Puppy Facebook Contest)!
LITTER NOMINATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 15, 2022.
It’s been a long, hot summer with many people staying home or going to seminars dogless with friends, ..so let’s have some fun AND raise some money for the 2023 CCA!
This contest is open to all COLLIE puppies whelped between 9/30/2021 and 9/30/2022.
You must first nominate your litter by November 15, 2022 at a cost of $25.00. You must specify the sire/dam/AKC or Kennel Club Litter number from the country of birth. All puppies from nominated litters are eligible for further participation and must pay $5.00 per month, per puppy, beginning in November, and ending in March (5 payments) to remain eligible in the futurity. Each puppy must be identified by their AKC number, or registration number from country of birth by the date of entry closing. If you are feeling UBER CONFIDENT in your puppy choice, you may pay the entire cost up front, rather than on a month to month basis. Doing this will save you $5! To make it fair to all, we’ll cap the amount of money that you pay at $25.00 (not including the litter nomination). Deadline for monthly payment is the last calendar day of the month with the exception of the last monthly payment which will be due on March 15th, 2023. It is the competitor’s responsibility to pay by the deadline. Failure to do so will drop puppies from the competition.
Half of the total pool will be retained by the 2023 CCA Show Fund in support of the Invitational, while the other half of the pot from the CCA competitors will be awarded to the eligible puppy winning the highest placement in conformation classes at the 2023 CCA. In cases of ties or multiple equal awards, the pool will be split amongst the tying awardees. There will be no discrimination within variety – winner take all! Best of Winners in a variety will take precedence over Winners in the other variety.
Eligible litters and nominees status will be maintained and periodically reported on Facebook to help generate and maintain interest. We would love to see monthly photos of all the nominated puppies posted to our CCA 2023 Puppy Futurity page!
Already know that you or your puppy can’t attend the CCA? Don’t worry, we have a contest for you, too! Nominate them the same, continue with your monthly $5.00 per pup to stay in the game. The winner of the Stay At Home Futurity will be awarded one half of the pot from Stay At Home competitors based on a drawing to be held after Best of Breed on April 2, 2023. Again, half of the money collected will go to the CCA Show Account, and the other half split between the winner of the top award and a drawing from the stay at home pool. Should something unforeseeable happen and you have entered the SHOW CCA Futurity, but then cannot attend, you can switch your puppy to the Stay At Home Futurity. Even better – keep your pets eligible and pass along their eligibility to their new owners! What a great bonus to puppy customers and visibility to the Collie Club of America! Seriously, we’ll take your money any way we can….
Whether you’re heading to the CCA or Staying At Home, either way, we would love to see your puppy pictures shared on the CCA 2023 Puppy Futurity FB page!=
