    So...what are some serious, well thought out suggestions for fixing this and still allowing a club to limit entries?

    Limit entries to ten per handler first day. Then five per day until limit is reached. No double handlers may be listed.

    I've been hunt test secretary several times and entered all the stuff on EE, but this got me to wondering how the "mailed entries" plays into this. I know that almost no one mails their entries anymore, but what if they did? Is there a place in line for them? I could call EE and find out, but thought someone that knows the answer might share with everyone. Thanks.

    What if the Owner had to do the entering, not the handler? If the owner had more than one dog then he/she could still enter with one click but it would eliminate the pro from entering the entire truck with one click

    Also, a standard opening time. Some of us have trouble doing daytime entries due to work. No solution is perfect. Fairness is really what we are talking about.

    In rally and obedience clubs are now allowed to establish a wait list to fill spots from scratches after the close. I realize that this would not allow a huge number of people in, but might help at least a bit!

    seems crazy that one person can enter 30 dogs... 1/2 a flight? Really?

    I think that this is the only answer at this point

    Dammit. Read too quickly... wait list to fill scratches BEFORE close, not after.

    If you have 2 flight of 60 dogs each , separate the flights ,Flight "PRO" and flight "AM". Let the pros battle it out for their spot in their "flight" and the AM's do the same. EDIT This also gives everyone the choice of which dogs they will enter, unlike a "draw"

    It seems on average that a test will open 11-13 days before close ,now say at day 7 from close (or whatever) , whatever spots (if any ) left in the AM flight ,become fair game to pro's and am's to fill the remaining spots in the AM flight. If the AM's cant get their sh!t together by then , your out from your own doing.

    This will ensure the club has 2 full flights,gives the working stiffs time to sign up (the heart of the sport) and fullfill the pros need to run multiple dogs.(the money of the sport)

    It seems that EE could easily ( probably not) to post the "all in date" predetermined buy the club. In the sign up area add another set of simple boxes to check ,Pro or AM. so "manual labor" would not be needed in placing the appropriate dog/handler to their flight.
