Concerning MASCA sanctioning MASCA shows for NAMASCUSA points:
As of July, 20, 2011, MASCA will no longer allow sanctioning of MASCA conformation shows for NAMSCUSA points. Judge’s books from MASCA shows will not be given to the NAMASCUSA office, and NAMASCUSA Winsheets will not be accepted, by a judge, for signing at a MASCA show.
With the advent of this new policy, MASCA will continue to protect the integrity of MASCA, its registry, MASCA conformation shows, and the Australian Shepherd of the miniature variety. NAMASCUSA/MASCUSA is the designated club for the AKC/FSS Miniature American Shepherd, which aligns their dogs with the new breed Miniature American Shepherd and not with the Australian Shepherd of the miniature variety.
