Futurity and Maturity:
Monies: All collected monies will be turned over to the ACS Treasurer with a pay- out listing provided by the Points Registrar. The ACS Treasurer will then disburse the monies in accordance with the designated pay-outs for both the Futurity and Maturity. This will remove the responsibility of the burden of the Show Club for determining Pay- outs for the Futurity and Maturity.
