Reserving an Entry
Advanced entries only. Entries close approximately two weeks prior to the event date. Each advertised Super Slam Series Event is listed on the UKC website and Coonhound Bloodlines. The listing will also show a closing date, after which entries will no longer be accepted. Advanced entries will be open as soon as the event is listed and will close on the noted closing date or when all 16 entries have been reserved. All Super Slam Event reservations will close on the Friday at midnight 15 days before the day of the event.

Entries may be reserved online or by contacting United Kennel Club. Advanced entries are reserved in the name of the applicant. The applicant will not enter a dog in the event when reserving the entry. The applicant may enter any UKC registered dog of their choice on the day of the event. The dog may or may not be one that is registered in the applicant’s name.

Event Reservation Criteria Information
Entry into the event will be given in the order of reservations received. A Super Slam must have a minimum of eight (8) reserved entries by the closing date, otherwise, the event will not be held. In order for an event to have three (3) casts the event must have reached a total of 12 advanced reservations. In order for an event to have four (4) casts the event must reach a total of 16 advanced reservations. Example: An event that had a total of 11 reserved entries would result in the # 9, #10, and #11 reservations to not get in. This policy assures cast winners the maximum payout, based on the entry fee type.

Entry Fee Credit Card Charges, Payout, and Club’s Income
UKC will be responsible for taking all entry fee monies. Credit Cards are processed and charged at the time the reservation is made. Declined credit cards will result in the applicant not being able to submit a reservation. If the event does not fill (see Minimum Entry Requirement above) or the applicant is denied entry into the event, due to the order of reservation when there are less than a total of three or less than a total of four full casts (see Event Reservation Criteria Information), then the applicants credit card will be refunded within five business days after the events closing date.

After entry’s close and prior to the event, UKC will mail a check to the host club. The amount sent will cover the winner’s payout and the club’s share of the event income. Administration, License and Recording fees in the amount of $100 will be retained by UKC. The club is responsible for dispersing payout monies as outlined on their Event Payout Form.

Reservation Refunds
No refunds with exception as noted above. However, a reserved entry may be sold to another individual. Any such transactions are between the seller and the buyer. The original reservation confirmation comes with a form to give to the buyer to present to the official on the day of the event.

Event Running Rules
Current UKC Slam running rules, with exception to those specifically noted below (See Super Slam Rule Revisions), apply to all Super Slam Events. UKC Championship rules, as they apply to Nite and Grand Nite Champion casts, are utilized in all cast’s. All dogs regardless of category are drawn out together. All casts must hunt for two hours. A dog must hunt the entire two hours to be eligible for UKC Championship points or wins and/or event payouts.

Super Slam Rule Revisions
The following rules, which deviate from the current UKC Coonhound Nite Hunt Honor Rules, shall apply at all UKC Super Slams in *2017. These changes apply to UKC Super Slam hunts only.

  1. Tree Positions. 2 (b) {125 points for dog declared treed first; 75 points second; 50 points third; 25 points fourth.}
    Change: Two minutes after first dog is declared treed, second (75) and third (50) tree positions become unavailable. Any dog(s) declared treed after two minutes will receive 25 tree points.
  2. Handling Dog(s) on Split Trees. 11 (c) {Judge shall give handler permission to handle dog on split tree unless cast is in process of shining a tree.}
    Change: Non-Hunting Judge may give handler permission (judge’s decision) to handle dog(s) on split tree, even when cast is in process of shining a tree.

Note: A copy of the nite hunt rules revisions noted above are provided in the club’s Super Slam Event Packet. A total of five copies are included. One for the Master of Hounds and one for each of the four casts.

Super Slam Hunt Time(s)
All casts will hunt for two hours, no exceptions. A dog must hunt the whole two hours to be considered a cast winner.

Championship Points and Wins
Any dog winning its cast with a total score of plus points will receive UKC Championship points. Registered dogs will receive a First-Place win and 40 Championship points. Nite Champion dogs will receive one (1) win towards their Grand Nite degree. Grand Nite Champions will receive a Grand Nite Champion win. The Event Report is filled out by the event official based on highest score placing first. Dogs winning their cast without a total score of plus points will not receive any UKC Championship points and should not be noted on the Event Report.

Cast Winner Eligibility
A dog must hunt the entire two hours of the hunt to be eligible for a cast win and a payout. A dog winning it’s cast with a total score of zero or less must have met one of the following requirements to be considered a cast winner and eligible for cast win payouts:
§ Have plus or circle tree points recorded on the scorecard.
§ Positive strike points recorded on the scorecard for coon caught on ground.

Late Round Hunt Off
There is no option to hunt off the cast winners.

Judges
All casts at a Super Slam event will utilize non-hunting judges. Clubs are responsible for using only qualified individuals as non-hunting judges. The host club is responsible for paying judges, if deemed necessary.

Host Club Responsibilities
The Host Club must use a UKC Licensed Master of Hounds to be in charge of the event. The Host Club is responsible for supplying guides for each cast. Hunting guides may be used. It is the responsibility of each Host Club to provide a photo of the winners. They must email the photo(s) to UKC in a timely manner to be posted on the UKC website. Additionally, a brief recap of the event, included with the winner’s photos, is appreciated.

Changes or Updates
Any changes to rules and policies relevant to the Super Slam Series will be published in the monthly Super Slam Series page(s) in Coonhound Bloodlines and the UKC website. Information found on the UKC website will be considered the final authority. Additional information relative to the Super Slam Series is available at ukcdogs.com.

Super Slam Series Event Approval
Clubs interested in hosting a Super Slam Series event should contact UKC for consideration. Please email all requests to Allen Gingerich at agingerich@ukcdogs.com. A limited number of events only will be available each year.

Grand Masters Invitational
The Grand Masters Invitational hosts an entry of up to 64 dogs with a guaranteed minimum payout of $5,000 to the overall winner. The 2017 UKC Grand Masters Invitational will held on Wednesday and Thursday nights during the week leading up to Autumn Oaks on Labor Day weekend. The Grand Masters Invitational is open to the owners of those dogs who were entered in a Super Slam in 2017.

Consideration for entry will be given first to the registered owner of a dog who was a cast winner at a Super Slam Series Event; followed by, the owners of a dog entered in a Super Slam who was not a cast winner until the maximum entry of 64 has been met. The dog entered in the Grand Masters does not have to be the same dog that won a cast at a Super Slam Series Event; however, it must be a dog that is registered to the same Sole Signatory or any one Successor. Further details will be announced and posted on the UKC website, prior to the event.
