GREEN STAR SYSTEM
An index figure will be
allocated to each sex, also to mixed dog and bitch classes in
each breed. This index
figure is arrived at by diving the total number of valid exhibits at
Championship Shows by the number of shows at which Green Stars were offered,
during the previous year ending 30th June, in that year.
Breed Championship and IKC Show
17th March Excluded }
Where the total number
of eligible exhibits actually shown ( in dog, bitch or mixed classes as the case
may be ) is equal to the index figure, then five Green Star points will be
awarded, for every 20% below the index figure one point will be deducted and for
every 20% above the index figure, one point will be added. All Green Star points
will be rounded up or down to the nearest whole number.
No Green Star awarded
will have a value less than 1 point or greater than 10 points.
No breed will be
allocated an index figure of less than 5.
Before a dog can become a Champion it must win a total of not less than 40 ( Forty ) Green Star points including one of the following viz :-
By winning 4 x 5 points in the breed under four different judges or,
By winning 2 x5 points and 1 x 10 in the breed under three different judges, or
By winning 3 x 5 points in the breed and
1 Group under four different judges.
Dog disqualified for any reason whatsoever cannot be
awarded Green Stars. However, the only disqualification’s which can lower the
value in the calculation of the index figure are those of disqualification for
non-registration and exhibition in the wrong breed.
From 1982, the mixed figure will be that for dogs plus
bitches less 40%.
It should be noted that the term “ Mixed Classes “
applied only to where ALL the classes for that breed at a show are mixed. Where
only some classes are mixed, then the numbers of dogs and bitches are abstracted
and added to their respective totals.
Where two Green Stars are offered in any bred, the award
to the best dog or bitch shall entitle the winner to a Green Star, the value of
which shall be at least equal to the value of the Green Star award to the best
opposite sex. Also a dog winning a Group or best In show will be entitled to a
Green Star equal in value to the highest value won by any dog eligible to
compete and competing in that Group or Best In Show.
The title Annual Champion shall be awarded, in each
breed to the dog or bitch which has won, in each calendar year, the greatest
number of Green Star points, with a minimum of 30 to be won under not less than
three different judges. In the case of a tie, then the title joint Annual
Champion will be awarded.
