On June 14th, the official ECAHO website announced the disaffiliation of the West Coast Cup show. The show was initially scheduled to take place on August 6-7th, however the organizer asked to change the date to July 23rd-24th. The Show Commission did not approve of this change, because it clashed with other shows taking place during the same weekend, whereas the organizer did not accept any other dates.
In regard to the above ECAHO announced that any ECAHO official (judge, DC member, ringmaster) officiating at this show will be suspended from the respective list.
