    There are 2 reasons clubs want to be able to have limits. First is the grounds and help. The second is also important and maybe something can be done to help with this area. If there are over 60...

    Why don't clubs just drop their MN affiliation? That would make their MH passes not count towards MN Qualification, and thus solve the problem of too many entries.

    If the clubs who put on the...

    The limits aren't because of entry express though - they're because clubs can't put on that big of a test for a number of reasons. What would happen now?

    The flaw in the system is that demand is outstripping supply. There are 2 approaches - first, try to figure out how to decide who gets in and who doesn't as fairly as possible. The other is to...

    1. Joe newbie is probably not trying to enter his dog in a MH test. Since he's just starting out, he is probably in JH or SH, and lucky for him, no problem getting entered for either of those.

    So are you all saying it's not possible to increase the supply of entry slots? It seems crazy to me that the discussions on this center around how to decide who gets the limited slots available...

    The MNH and the surplus of entries are a tremendous opportunity for it to grow. We have demand for more entries than we have slots. We need to turn that somehow into a way to create more slots,...

    The concern is that you have to get the offending testicle found and removed, which eliminates the extra risk, and also that it while a normal neuter process is outside of the body, to remove the...

    That is the original purpose and I think is still the intent. I hunt, and in fact, that's how I got into retrievers in the first place. My point is that some of the trappings that go along with...

    The idea that FT dogs somehow need more help than a hunt test dog does is silly. It might appear that way because the gunners are all wearing white coats, but I'd much rather try to pick up a hunt...

    Why not just reserve X numbers of spots until 1 week before closing for amateurs? Say 20 slots per test.

    HH and Grundens are pretty similar and will keep you dry and warm - maybe too warm. Also some of the jackets don't have pockets and the bibs don't, so it can get hard to handle everything when...

    I think you mean you can't run 2 groups of 90 dogs for MH - be it 2 flights in the same test or an actual double master.
