A good breed club district director will see that meets are placed at all shows in their District. A bad district director will sit on their rear and have the shows contact them. I have been a District Director for the ABA, Wyandotte Breeders America, RI Red Club and Plymouth Rock Club and I made sure every show had a meet and the larger meets were rotated around. So often these District Director jobs are filled due to lack of interest and sometimes they are merely a popularity contest. They do not have all that much to do other than place meets and write a small article once in awhile but I am amazed at those who chose to do nothing. Not sure this is a solution to your dilema but it is definitely the cause.
