    What is an appropriate Qual size? I see people describing small Quals, however I've been to 3 and all of them were 40+ dogs, I've been going to sign up for others the lowest one I can recall was 27, The only O/H qual we've had in this area was 32. These seem like pretty large numbers to me, for a competition that only gives a 1st & 2nd for an (unoffical) QAA distinction and no points toward anything. Any other FT stake awards point for the other placements, which go toward your higher title, even the derby awards points toward derby list. In a Qual there's just a 1st or 2nd (now 2 of those might give you an offical title) still I'm not even sure why they give out 3rds & 4ths. To me it seem if they were going to do a Qual title they should've given the other placements points; and the title be the same as the other Ft titles (win + points) = Qa2, seems weird the change from tradition.

    Around here 20 is about average. 30 is large, but the OHQs tend to be on the larger side. There is a FT Q next weekend that has 9. That is the smallest one I have seen in a while.

    In New England the O/H Quals generally run between 12 to 20 dogs.
