HOW DO I SANCTION JERSEY WOOLIES FOR A SHOW?
So, you’re going to a show, and it appears as though they aren’t sanctioned (and you know this because you’ve checked my sanctioned shows listing on the website!). What to do?! Chances are your problem will be pretty easily resolved.
Step 1: Contact the show secretary & inquire about sanctioning JW’s for their show/s. Some show secretaries will be fine with giving you the ARBA sanction numbers for you to submit directly to me. But, other show secretaries will request that you send the payment to them, and they’ll submit the request to me. And still some other secretaries will tell you that national clubs don’t accept sanctions directly from club members. I can assure you that’s not the case with the NJWRC. I’ll accept sanctions from anyone!
Step 2: You either need to submit your payment directly to the show secretary as mentioned above, or you need to complete the NJWRC sanction request form & send it directly to me with payment. The request form is available on the NJWRC sweepstakes website and can found on the SANCTION REQUEST FORM! tab. The form must be completed in full. It’s a very easy form (completed sample accompanies this article). The cost is $10 per show. That doesn’t mean if a club is hosting 3 shows in a day that it’s $10. That’s $30. Each ARBA sanction number is a show.
*Tip: ARBA sanction numbers are ALWAYS 7 characters (3 letters, 4 numbers). Ex: NOA1234. The 1st letter cycles through the alphabet (as I write this, they’re nearing the end of the N numbers). The 2nd letter will ALWAYS be either O (open) or Y (youth). The 3rd letter will ALWAYS be an A (all-breed) or an S (specialty show). So if you send me a sanction & have ARBA # NOO1538, your request will be rejected for correction.
Step 3: Request must be postmarked prior to the show date.
TIP: If sending a sanction directly to me, it’s great if you also include your own contact information – just in case!
That’s it – it’s REALLY that easy!
