    Good thinking outside the box however A. how is charging the Pro and his client 'more' fair and B. it's hard enough for most folks to run a 3 day test much less 4. Including Judges who would have to arrive Wednesday to look at grounds.

    It wouldn't take much to solve the problem

    Basically with a little fine tuneing ....
    Figure out the cutoff number. At the draw, all who wish to run a dog in the test can get entered run one before any one can get enter to run two. If there is still room do the same for those wishing to run more than one. No one can enter to run three before all who wish to get two get entered to run two; and so on..... No refunds before the draw, after the draw none for those dogs selected

    That's a little 'fine' tuning? Where does all this occur? EE?

    I am not a noble person...It hacks me that pros with more ability than me running dogs for people with more money than me crowd me out of running and I go work to help them..
    I really don't think this was the intent of hunt tests.
    I think one requirement should be that dogs spend a minimum of X number of days actually hunting in order to be elgible...no, I have no idea how that could be verified...

If a club is not a MN Club Member, a Master Pass at that club's test will only count towards an AKC Master title and not towards the total number of Master passes required for a MN invite.

    I have my dog with a Pro.

    I enter my dog on EE when he calls.

    Let me tell ya.. When your trainer calls you at 10pm (11 pm where he is) you kinda Panic that it is bad news... Nope.. He was just calling to tell me to get her entered in a Master Test at College Station and he wasnt sure how long it would be open... I pulled my horse trailer off on the side of the road, and entered her on my iPhone... Do you have any idea how maddening it is to go thru EE on an iPhone? Pain in the butt... But thats what it is right now.

    He has been locked out of Master tests.. so I know to drop everything and enter when he calls. With that said... It isnt much different than rodeos.. Its an all out panic to get into the performance you want or the rodeo you want!

    You said a mouthful clipper. I am not sure what one has to do with another though.

    I work a test to help club who helps me. Whether I run my dog or not. People should be able to run their own test if they want to, I agree. I suspect their are quite a few complaining about not getting in club tests they have nothing to do with.

    Wouldn't part of the problem be solved if the HT secretary sent a group e mail to all club members that the HT was now open on EE.
    I know some clubs do that now.

    EE and AKC have to finalize the test, this process may take a month. You never know when it will finalize with out checking all the time. Some HT fill in a couple of hours.

    Thanks David

    So unless you check every 4 hours or so, or maybe a friend gives you a heads up, you're out of luck.
