Entries can double and triple on the last day, especially if there is a conflicting trial closing on the same day.

This one is not on EE, so it is more difficult to know the numbers.

As a club member I can assure you these trials are far from secret and suggesting they are is frankly ignorant. If straightlines is hinting at any impropriety in making entry available I wish he would name names so the situation could be addressed. Because the club has chosen to accept entries in the traditional method does not constitute a conspiracy Oliver Stone. These are good, well run trails that have traditionally drawn a wide ranging and elite group of participants.

Ya'll settle down now!
I spoke to Patti and she says "Come on down, we have birds enough for everybody!"
Heck, if she can get 2nd in a 111 starting dog Open in Lost Hills with a 3 year old "on the block" dog, I am quite sure she as well as the other locals aren't hiding any trials from the competition on their own home turf!

Any update on the numbers for the Derby?

The last I heard yesterday evening was 9. Hopefully there are a few more by now. We would like to see at least 14. This gives leeway for scratches and no show. I haven't heard on the Qual. The club took a big hit a few years ago when the derby had two scratches and one show. It was thought that the no show would be found so the stake started and by the next day all hope was gone. A lot of flyers were shot and we had to refund all entry fees.

As of this morning:
32 Open
27 Amateur
7 Qual
9 Derby (I can pull another local dog if needed)

straightlines...both will be so small.



SOunds like our trials up here. Our average Open is 25-35 dogs and some years we have members entering a "sacrifice dog" so we can have a derby....

9 Derby (I can pull another local dog if needed)

As long as one of those other 9 dogs doesn't scratch, you'll be a hero!:)

Hi Rob, It would be great if you could enter that other local dog. I heard that you were entering your young dog that is not quite ready and it is really appreciated. It doesn't look promising for the Q. Marie

Marie,

What do you mean doesn't look promising for the Q? I didn't think there was a minimum number for that stake??

Earlier this year there were 3 trials in a row with no Derby due to lack of numbers near me.

Fom I just think it would be much better to have more competition in the Qualifying.

I had an e mail from Chris and the Derby has 10. It doesn't close until 6 pm California time. The Q is still low. Just hope there are no scratches or no shows in the Derby.

I agree, but then again there were times I was running the Qual with knucklehead and just wanted to get through one, but hard to do with 45+ dogs and the newbie handler making stupid errors! ;)

Wished I was closer, I'd run the old man for fun!

I think the Q handlers will be very happy if only 7 dogs are entered :) wish we could have run it.
I think its going to be a fun trial. Does anyone know the final count, entries closed last night.
