    I don't run many AKC tests, but how can it possibly fill that fast? Are people giving EE their info before it opens? I hope that's not the case but I don't know what else it could be.

    In my area we only have 2 tests a year so if we miss we have to wait till next year. I hope breeders don't hog all the spots on our tests.

    May be worth noting that in that test there is one senior and two juniors entered.

    Perhaps one already exists, but I would think a IT techie guy or gal who develops an Iphone app to send an alert when an event on EE changes from view to enter event could make a couple bucks.

    Why is that worth noting? It would be expected that Junior and Senior wouldn't have the rush to enter since they are not limited.

    Bryan-College Station started out that way, too and ended up with 77 Seniors and 88 & 96 Juniors.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    What do breeders have to do with this issue?

    You may want to consider expanding your area, and no breeders have nothing to do with it. Heres 20 pages of problems and ideas for a solution..
