NYR&CBA SWEEPSTAKES INFORMATION

Current Sweepstakes Award Committee Chairperson:
Judy Blodgett - email: lops2mops@aol.com

A Sweepstakes Contest is run by NYRCBA based on Display Points. All points are calculated on the same basis as ARBA Display points by breed as follows: First place counts as six (6) points; second place as four (4) points; third as three (3) points; fourth as two (2) points; and fifth as one (1) point. The total number of points awarded to an exhibitor is multiplied by the number of specimens exhibited and judged in the class. The grand total is to be the number of points counted in competition. Best of Breed winner receives one (1) times the number exhibited in the breed. Best Opposite Sex of Breed receives one half (1/2) times the number exhibited in the breed. The Annual State Convention Show counts as double points.

The State Show Circuit points year runs from July 1 to June 30. To be eligible for point awards, a single exhibitor or members of a group of two or more exhibitors must be members of an NYRCBA all-breed club and compete in at least 40 % of the NYRCBA sanctioned all-breed shows. The points are compiled under the name shown on the state point reports. Except for marital status, no change in names is allowed during the show year. It is the responsibility of the exhibitor to notify the Points Chairperson of any changes in the name under which rabbits are being exhibited that would affect the accurate compiling of state points

Points accumulated under Breed Specialty shows count in that breeds points only. They do not count under all-breed Display Points.

At the Annual State Banquet, awards are presented to the top point winners in each breed and to the first and second runners up in each breed. Awards are also presented to the top five (5) exhibitors, all breeds participating.

TO: ALL SHOW SECRETARIES

RE: NYRCBA SWEEPSTAKES POINTS

To fulfill your obligation as show secretary, you are required to submit a report that includes the following:

~ Your name as the show secretary along with your address, email and phone number.

~ A list consisting of: EACH breed shown, the total number shown in that breed AND the names of the exhibitors receiving BOB and BOS.

~ A list consisting of: the exhibitors that showed in each breed and the total number of points that the exhibitor received for showing THAT breed.

~ A check for fee of 15 /animal exhibited made payable to NYR&CBA.

~ A copy of the show catalog.

If your report is hand generated, you need to send only the above information on plain paper. It is recommended that you make a copy of the report for your own records. It is not necessary to send a list of each class, exhibitors and placing unless you do not trust your mathematics skills.

Please also include a copy of NYS SANCTION & DISPLAY POINTS FORM which records the name of the club, the date and location of the show, the total number of animals shown, etc. Please do not staple the pages together, send paper clips or rubber bands in the mail as this only adds to the weight of the report, thus increasing postage and increasing the chance of mail damage. There is no need to send the report by certified mail or insure it, especially if you make a copy.

Your report is due to me within 30 days of the show.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Judy Blodgett, Sweepstakes Chairperson

New York State law prohibits giving away "pets as prizes", selling or giving away animals that are less than 8 weeks old, and outlaws the dying of animals. Please review all regulations set forth by the NYS Dept. Of Agriculture & Markets, Division of Animal Industry at NEW YORK STATE DEPT. OF AGRICULTURE & MARKETS.

Under Article 26, Section 358-a of the NYS Agriculture and Markets Law, live animals are not allowed to be given away as prizes in any game, drawing, contest, sweepstakes or other promotion.

The exceptions are purebred livestock (domesticated sheep, goat, horse, cattle or swine inclusive) and fish. Animals can also be given away as part of a bona fide education program. Enforcement is carried out by peace officers or agents of an incorporated SPCA

NY CLS Agr & M 354 (2000) 354. Sale of baby chicks and baby rabbits

1. No person shall sell, offer for sale, barter or give away living baby chicks, ducklings or other fowl or baby rabbits unless such person provides proper brooder facilities where appropriate for the care of such baby chicks, ducklings or other fowl or baby rabbits during the time they are in the possession of such person. For the purposes of this section, a baby rabbit shall be a rabbit of less than two months of age.

2. No person shall sell, offer for sale, barter or display living baby chicks, ducklings or other fowl or baby rabbits which have been dyed, colored or otherwise treated so as to impart to them an artificial color. 2-a. No provision of subdivision two shall be interpreted or applied to prevent or restrict teachers and qualified instructors of youth under the guidance and supervision of the New York state cooperative extension service from using eggs for non-profit educational purposes or from observing fowl hatched from such eggs for non-profit educational purposes.

3. No person shall sell, offer for sale, barter or give away living baby chicks, ducklings or other fowl or baby rabbits under two months of age in any quantity less than six.

4. A violation of the provisions of this section is a misdemeanor, punishable by imprisonment for not more than one year, or by a fine of not more than five hundred dollars, or by both.

NY CLS Agr & M 358-a (2000) 358-a. Live animals as prizes prohibited

1. For the purposes of this section "livestock" shall mean any domesticated sheep, goat, horse, cattle or swine.
2. No person shall give or offer to give away any live animal other than purebred livestock or fish as a prize in any game, drawing, contest, sweepstakes or other promotion, except when any live animal is given away by individuals or organizations operating in conjunction with a cooperative extension education program or agricultural vocational program sanctioned by the state education department.
3. The commissioner shall promulgate rules and regulations which provide guidelines, conditions and requirements when any live animal is given away under the exceptions provided for in subdivision two of this section.
4. Any person who violates the provisions of this section shall be subject to civil penalty of not more than two hundred fifty dollars or in lieu thereof shall be guilty of a violation punishable solely by a fine of not more than two hundred fifty dollars.
