    Default The master limit monster got me!

    I got an email from someone today that said " the ***** club double master is open ,filling up fast. By the time I got online on my phone( I was out on the lake) to enter there were 3 spots left. I entered two dogs, by the time I hit enter I got a message it was full. This fall is gonna be fun on the east coast. I then looked at some of the other clubs close by and none are open yet. I did see one that right at the top said " entries will open at **** at 1 pm. I like that idea but I bet it will be full in minutes.

    Like I said in another thread, I thought about taking a couple of my dogs and trying hunt tests. So much for that...

    Buzz - quite a few openings left for the Northern Flight Master test in late August over at Kelley Farms.

    Same thing has happened to me now twice.... if you don't check EE first thing in the AM on the day a MN club opens its entry, you don't get in. My experience is that Master is full by 10am.

    Not sure when it opened but there was 3 spots left when I saw the email at 7 pm and still didn't get in. Got to be on top of it or you don't get in.

    With the convenience of EE, someone with multiple dogs, amateur or pro, could fill those 3 spots with a couple of mouse clicks.

    I thinks it's a regional thing, plus when the cut off date is for qualifying, we have a club hosting a HT that closed with 28 in Master.

    I checked this same event this morning and EE stated that it opened on 9/1/14. All of a sudden I get a phone call from a friend telling me XYZ is full. I check and he is right! Obviously, I did not receive an email but noticed that JH and SH are not even open for entries.
    I will run another event and hope like h*** I can get entered. Something has to change!!
