    What will change in 2 years? The fact that we will see what the current format has done and killed all the newcomers from getting involved?

    West coast MN didn't change anything around here this past year.

    Guess we were thinking about east coasters. Maybe hoping for some type of fix.

    The good ole paper days of mailed entries are looking better!

    Limited entries were a good idea for a few areas but the dang thing has backfired
    Just not sure how I will react when we run into an entry problem.
    Like most folks I will probably vote with my feet
    It is very flustrating not to be able to correct an issue and to feel helpless
    I can't believe The AKC ever meant for this to happen

    Two new clubs holding tests in VA this fall. The best solution to increased demand, is to increase supply.

    The problem is fixable. Just return to the 5 of 7 rule for MN qualifying. You have 7 tries to qualify 5 times. If you don't make it there's always next year. Unfortunately this won't being in the same amount of money so it won't happen.

    On the other hand...The Golden Club of Greater St. Louis has an unlimited master test and there are only 44 entries and it has been open since Monday. I bet if we had limited it to 120 it would be full or near full by now. It would be so very helpful if people that intend to enter this test would do so and not wait so that we can see if we need the additional flight of judges we have secured or if we need to secure more judges. We are trying to do what we see as the right thing but without the cooperation of the exhibitors all we seem to be doing is making our job harder. We did the same thing in the spring and ended up with 58 dogs and ran 2 flights anyway. It looks like we will be limiting our master tests going forward so we know what to plan for.
