Marans Chicken Club USA
Marans Chicken Club Breed Points for Sanctioned Marans Meets
Point Spread for APA shows holding sanctioned Marans Meets:
1 point Reserve of Variety
2 points Best of Variety
3 points Reserve of Breed
4 points Best of Breed
5 points Reserve Continental
6 points Best Continental
7 points Reserve Champion Large Fowl
8 points Champion Large Fowl
9 points Reserve Best in Show
10 points Grand Champion or Best in Show
Only Marans Chicken Club members in good standing are eligible for points. You will receive points for the highest place you earn in an APA show. For example, if your bird wins Best of Breed and then is also awarded Best of Continental, the bird gets 6 points for Best of Continental. If a bird wins Best in Show, it is awarded 10 points total.
Junior Show Exhibitors points will be kept on a separate record from Open Exhibitors. If a Junior Exhibitor exhibits birds in the Open class, the points will be kept on the Open Exhibitor list.
Junior Exhibitors also need to be members to be eligible for MCC points.
Only approved varieties are eligible for points in the Accepted Varieties category for the Marans Chicken Club. At this time it would include Black Copper, Wheaten, and White varieties.
Non-approved variety winners can earn 1 or 2 points for Reserve or Best of Variety. The non-approved color varieties will be kept on a separate record than the approved variety record and will be considered (any other variety).

A Show Report will be used for show records, and the regional representative will send Show Reports to the MCC Show Chairperson within 2 weeks after the show. The Show Report form has a place to indicate what type of Marans meet was held.
If Marans are shown in the Junior class.....please use a separate Show Report, and indicate Junior Show placements.
Show Report forms may be found on the MCCUSA Facebook Page and Resources Section of the MCCUSA site so any member of the club can fill out the show form in the event there is not a MCC regional representative attending the show. That member should send the show result form to the MCC Show Chairperson.
Each region may hold (one) STATE meet, for each state within that region. The Regional Representative is NOT required to attend all state meets. However, the Regional Representative will need to approve all MCCUSA meets.
Any current MCCUSA club member may represent the club at an APA sanctioned function with his/her state with the Regional Representatives' prior approval.
It would be unfair for the Regions that have much fewer APA shows and fewer Marans breeders to be required to show 25 or more Marans by 3 exhibitors at all shows.....so the number required at State meets is 10 or more Marans by 2 exhibitors.
The Annual Nationals and Regional (District) meets require at least 25 Marans shown by at least 3 exhibitors to earn points towards the MCCUSA end of the year awards.
Each District Representative may schedule up to 5 Special Meets per region, and points will also be awarded for those Special meets. There will be no minimum number for Marans shown or Exhibitors at these Special Meets.
When a MCC member earns 100 points in the Breed Show points, they will be given the title of Master Exhibitor.
If the MCC member earns 100 points in the Breed points, as well as 100 points in the Marans Egg Show points, they will be given the title of Master Breeder. The points toward Master Exhibitor and Master Breeder will accumulate from year to year, as long as the membership remains current.
Members have until January 31st to pay for the next year's membership.
