The Lucky Dog Racing Planning & Leadership Council was established in January 2005 to act as the governing body of the league. It assists the President in determining the best direction for the league and offers new ideas and suggestions.

Council Code

The Council currently consists of 9 members: The President, Vice-President and seven other council members. Each member has one vote each in most league matters. The President will only have 2 votes in matters where there needs to be action taken against another council member.


The council will discuss issues in their private board in the league forum. The council will usually discuss changes and new ideas during the off-season but if an issue is important enough to warrant immediate action, they can meet at any point during the season. Individual members will discuss and vote on certain issues. A majority of the vote will count towards the resolution of the item.
All voting results will be announced via the forum, Facebook group or emailed to the league members.


President: The President is the founder, owner and operator of the league. He has his position for life. The President runs the league, maintains the website, regularly updates results, standings, stats, etc. The President accepts new members and handles any problems or questions members have, however some of the duties could be designated to the Vice President as well. Lou Demian assumed this role when he started the league in 2004.

Vice President: The Vice President acts as the President's advisor and assistant. He may be asked to handle some responsiblities, member issues, scheduling meetings, etc. He should oversee the three council members as well. Sometimes the Vice President may be asked to receive the weekly picks if the President is away for the weekend. The Vice President should have an overall knowledge of the entire league operation. The Vice President has his role for life, but can be voted out of office if any actions prove to be detrimental to the league. If such an action is necessary, there would be a hearing scheduled and the entire league would vote on the consequences. The Vice President is in charge of quality control for the website. Shawn Jackson served as Vice-President until September 2006. Matt Sealey was elected Vice President in November 2006 and served until July 2008. Stephen DiCaprio was elected Vice-President in July 2008 where he currently serves.

Council Members: The seven additional council members are designated to be the voice of the league members. They act as role models for all other members. They are encouraged to have their voices heard by posting on the bulletin board and offering new suggestions and ideas. They may occassionally reach out to other members to learn their take on certain issues. Their votes count as votes for all the other members. League members should talk to them to let them know how they feel about certain issues. Council Members have their office for life as well, however they can be voted out more easily. If the other members feel that one council member is not living up to his or her expectations or is doing things that are detrimental to the league, they can be voted out by the 8 other members. In this case a hearing could be scheduled and a vote would then be cast. In this case, the President's vote would count as two.
