**1992**

The Victorian Yard Championship was held on the Halsall property near Euroa and featured a Utility trial being run simultaneously.

Lucky Dog sponsored all open trials in Victoria, providing money on the condition of dog food exclusivity.

The AGM was held on 13 June attended by G Wheatley, A Peacock, P & H Boyd, G Horman, D West, M Apostoladic, D Kyle, B Bates, R Marshall, B & J McKnight, E Newcomen, G Fawkes, C Robertson, J McCrum, S Stanley, I Collie, G & N Halsall.

The following were elected: A Peacock – President, R Marshall – Vice President, N Halsall – Secretary/Treasurer, I Collie, R Kyle, P Boyd, J McCrum, D West, S Stanley – Committee.

The following decisions were made:

* Fees remained the same;

* $500 be paid to the Secretary;

* The financial year was changed to July – June and memberships are due July 1;

* the Committee would distribute the Lucky Dog sponsorship of $5000 to affiliated trials; and

* Utility trials would come under the Association’s control and the name was changed to Victorian Yard Utility Farm Dog Assn and the Gippsland Utility rules were adopted.

The Committee met after the AGM and awarded the 1993 State Championship to Lindenow Sth and allocated it $1000 out of the Lucky Dog sponsorship.

The Committee met again in August to discuss Utility rules with the main issue being the penalty for crosses. It also decided judges needed to be financial members of the Assn and they needed to be nominated by a member to be eligible for the Judge’s panel.

G Halsall ran a 2-day school in June which covered the basics of yard and utility trialling.

In 1992/93 there were 102 members of which 11 were supporting.
