Show your support for RuFF and become a Member!
RuFF is recognized as a non-profit by the Commonwealth of KY and is applying for federal 501c7 status. To obtain/keep the 501c7 status, RuFF needs to have no more than 15% of our gross revenue come from the general public (i.e., non-members).
That means, at least 85% of our trial entry income must be from members.
Who can be a member?
Anyone who has a dog registered with NADAC and enters RuFF trials can belong! You do NOT have to live in Kentucky. We happily have members from other states.
Benefits of Membership
RuFF members can:
Vote in the December election for new officers and Board members; and vote on any other issues that come before RuFF during the year. To be eligible to vote, members must have joined RuFF at least 4 months prior to the vote (so no later than August for the December 2022 election)
Run for election as an Officer or Board member.
Attend member-only meetings and social events that may be organized such as celebratory dinners and VT (Video Tape) runs.
Receive discounts on entry fees at RuFF seminars or other events that may be sponsored by the Club in the membership year. Note: this does not apply to trial entries.
Obtain priority admission to any club sponsored seminar/event with limited entries (other than a trial) during the membership year.
Receive a $10 RuFF Member coupon for upcoming trial entries in the membership year. (Coupon expires at the end of the member year.)
Other additional benefits that the Board of Directors may identify!
And you earn RuFF’s everlasting appreciation of you!

Other than these organizational changes, RuFF is still the same RuFF – a fun-loving club that supports all breeds of dogs and their handlers by offering NADAC agility trials in a safe and friendly environment.
We hope you continue to support RuFF – and become even more actively involved!
