Dr. Roland Lombard, DVM, and Earl Norris were awarded Honorary Membership by SHCA for service to the Siberian Husky. "Doc" was an incredible sprint musher and mentor. Earl was a role model for the Siberian distance musher although he was a sprint musher for most of his life. It is appropriate that these awards be given for the best driver of all Siberianteam(s) in both sprint and distance racing and should bear their names
Purse is used for only the class entered--not the total purse available at a particular race. If the race is in Canada, then the purse may be calculated in Canadian dollars.
Each application for the Lombard - Norris Award requires:
Application must be postmarked no later than July 1 for the year in which the award applied for The awards shall consist of trophies in each division consistent with obedience plaques.
The greatest number of points in each division will determine the top team for each division. Points will be determined by the following formula for each:
Distance Division [Purse/25 + length of trail + Number drivers on 1st day + (number of dogs in team x 10) + 20 if ISDRA-sanctioned)] x [number of finishing teams minus your finishing position + 1.0)/number of finishing teams)]
Examples A 6-dog team entered with 30 starters in a 60 mile race with a $1000 Purse in which you place 20th of 25 finishers yields 45.6 points. The race is not ISDRA-sanctioned.
[(1000 / 25) + 60 + 30 + (6 x 10)] x [(25 - 20 + 1) / 25)]
A 16 dog team entered in an 1100 mile race with 60 starters and a $50,000. Purse. Your team places 30th of 50 completing and get 1394 points
[(50,000 / 25) + 1100 + 60 + (16 x 10)] x [(50 - 30) + 1 /50)]
Sprint Division: Unlimited [Purse/50) + length of trail + number drivers on 1st day + (number of dogs in team x 10) + 20 if ISDRA-sanctioned)] x [(number of finishing teams minus your finishing position + (1.0)/number of finishing teams)] = points for race
Sprint Division: Limited [Purse/25) + length of trail + number of drivers on 1st day + (number of dogs in team x 10) + 20 if ISDRA-sanctioned)] x [(number of finishing teams minus your finishing position + (1.0)/number of finishing teams] = number of points
Contact the chariman for the name of the regional reviewer to send your application to. That person will forward it to the chairman for a second review similar to the sled dog degree applications.
