I agree with you about the "Takers" and only see the problem worsening if folks can't get entered in their own local tests. Who is going to volunteer to work those events? You don't seriously expect people who aren't able to enter their dog to show up and throw birds all weekend for the pro's that got advance notice of the opening? Do you?
Anybody who doesn't think somebody tipped these folks off as to when the tests would open on EE, is absolutely DELUSIONAL.
