    Default What's happening at the SRS event?

    Is there is a link detailing the tests?

    Thanks.

    unfortunatly, that thread is calming down. I was hoping that Ken would jump in one more time and give her a stir, but I imagine he is at a trial by now.

    That "training on the test comment" got my attention, 'specially the comment made by the guy that says it happens all the time in FT and HT?

    Anybody know of something like that happening all the time at FTs or HTs?

    I'm not gonna say it doesn't happen, but about all I've ever seen is someone running some blinds or even just roading their dog to settle it down before running. I think the big difference is that in HT and FT the odds of seeing something really unusual or new are much smaller than that of the SRS.

    This also happened at the world championship thing a few years ago btw.

    IMHO, THE biggest problem with SRS is the seeding of the dogs. The "better" dogs do have the opportunities to run off and train on casting out of a boat or maybe something else thats very odd. Is it illegal? I don't think so. Should it be illegal? I don't think so because it would be almost impossible to prove/enforce.
    How about this, put all the names in a bucket and draw 5 or10 at a time, let those know that they are coming up. That way everyone else has to stick around to make sure they aren't in the next few to run.
