Date and location Banquet 2/11/2006
Class number(s) 
Number of riders in each class who complete the Class. 
Your placing in each Class. 
Many competitors keep a copy of the prize list. 

Compare your records to the point standings updates on the CHJA web site. 

Before you  call or email the CHJA office with point questions, please be sure to do the following:

Remember that the Show Secretary has 10 days to get the results of a show to this office. There is a lot of work to be done before results are sent.Banquet 2/11/2006 She must verify all of the results against the judges cards, make copies of the show for all of the organizations, verify the rider's and owner's names and membership numbers, prepare Medal Class results and fees, balance the receipts and make sure all new member applications for the various organizations are correct. At some shows, the results must be prepared for 6 or 7 organizations! Once the results are received by this office the show is usually posted within 1-7 days. 

1. Look at the list of Approved Shows to see what shows have been included in the most recent points update. The date the show was posted is indicated under "Date Posted". Remember that points become final 30 days from the date they are posted and can't be changed. If the points from a show are "Final", it is indicated next to the show as well. 

2. Look up the show you are checking points for to see if there are any special notations about any of the classes that were run. There may be classes that were not CHJA recognized or didn't count because there were not enough entries or CHJA members competing in or completing the class. There may also be a question about the results of a class. In that case the show will be posted except for the class in question.
