I believe this is in progress. The 'Handbook' is in a three ring binder so
that changes and additions can be easily made. The only problem lies in
tracking who has copies and whether to distribute changes 'pro bono' or
nick the recipient for mailing/repro expenses.
Even further along this track, I envision placing 'template' Show Schedules
in a ftp (File Transfer Protocol) area of, say, all Society websites. Click
on the appropriate link and a formatted Show Schedule is downloaded to your
hard drive, in the word processor or page layout program of your choice.

There would be an assortment of Schedule types; a bare bones small show, a
mid-sized bash and an all-out, pedal to the metal extravaganza. There could
be a model tailored for a beardless show (low trestles to facilitate
viewing and judging) a schedule tailored for an early season MDB/SDB
'mostly median show, a schedule that had verbiage tailored to fit a mall
setting and one for a more restricted venue. There could be an 'add-on'
Section/Division such as a small, medium and large Design Division. There
could be schedules tailored for the special interest catered to by the
particular website (i.e., a schedule with a wider than usual emphasis on
Historics for the HIPS site, one tailored to SIBs for the SSI site, etc.)
An ftp addendum to Society websites would not necessarily have to be
limited to just Show Schedules! The only insects in the ointment are
download costs, most ISPs start adding supplemental charges when a site
passes 500 megabytes/month download.
