Every business or organization is going to do some things differently. They can’t all be the same. You don’t like that USCA wants to certify a scorebook? Fine, I don’t like that I have to have my 4-generation pedigree tattoo/micro-chip certified just to get a WDA scorebook. That not only takes extra money but extra time (including a visit to the vet). I don’t like that to be a DVG member and obtain one of their scorebooks I have to belong to a DVG club (there are no DVG clubs remotely near me). There’s always going to be hoops to jump through and things you dislike in every organization. They are run by people and people are not perfect.
USCA is an organization. It is a competitive business that needs to grow and thrive just like any other competitive business. It would shock me if they didn’t try to do what they could to get and maintain members (within reason). That’s just smart business if you ask me and I for one personally wouldn’t mind paying an extra fee or going to the trouble of having a scorebook certified for being a non-member of the organization.
I just want to be able to participate and compete without being sneaky or cheating. I'm thrilled that I can now see a possible way to do so - thanks to Frank's input here.
ETA: I am not a USCA member and am not defending them, just saying I can understand the reasoning.
