: Trials calendar jumps a week this year

The corresponding calendar for field trials causes traditional weekends to be off by a week. Haven't seen any discussion about this. I know Miss Valley & Lincoln Trail are a week later than normal.

It looks like Middle Tn is scheduled for 4/16 per EE. Haven't seen anything for Mid Illinois. Any confirmation on dates for these trials. Thanks

I know there was a big discussion about the nat'l amateur. The people in charge of the nat'l amateur wanted to move it up a week from the corresponding weekend table at AKC. Sure would have messed up some clubs and their trials if they had.

The easiest way to keep track of this is to use the corresponding date table on the AKC can tell years in advance when a trial should be scheduled based on its corresponding date from years past.

Use the table and there are few surprises

It created some issues last time, though I think most of those were with hunt test clubs around Labor Day.

Several clubs on my circuit have juggled dates recently and I am just trying to confirm.

For the first time since I have been involved with the club, our spring trial will NOT be on Mother's Day weekend!
