    Default EE idea

    Personally I think that charging extra for a paper entry from an agent is a terribly cheap shot. So for the next six months I am putting my money where my mouth is. I will offer to pay for the convenience of using EE for non EE trials.

    Perhaps Shayne could put one of those little boxes in for the few non EE trials that would allow me to support EE in senidng in my entries for me. I could check the box and pay the delivery charge or something like that.

    If this is all about money, then, for a couple of extra $'s we can support EE through this intitial wave of competition. I think in six months this will all blow over.

    What do you all think?

    Nancy, incredibly grateful for the work that EE has done to make my life much simpler.

    Hi Nancy. One suggestion that keeps hitting my inbox was to make the "agent" fee voluntary, which would also generate a letter of protest on behalf of the entrant. I'd rather just counter negative attacks on EE with proactive, productive efforts to further benefit the clubs and the sport.

    If an entrant uses EE.net, as opposed to Word or Excel, to print their entry forms, and the return address is that of the owner..... whether it's his kid or US that walk it to the mailbox is irrelevant.

    If there are any fees that need to be paid, EntryExpress will pay them.

    It just depends on what the premiums say at the time of entry i guess. They appear to be ever changing.

    In case some missed this when i posted it earlier.......

    The EntryExpress view on AKC Mailed Entries

    Overview
    We firmly believe that EVERY entrant is protected by the AKC Rulebook and Constitution when entering any event governed by the same. While the AKC Board of Directors have added a regulation allowing the use of electronic entry services, the RULES pertaining to discrimination, entries, and sportsmanship are clear in our eyes.

    To our Club Customers
    Though the rules may not apply to us directly, they do apply to you. It is the policy of EntryExpress to consider any and all AKC rules that could affect our AKC club customers. As the club’s contractually bound entry agent, it is our policy to not put our clubs at risk of liability as a result of our actions; discriminatory or otherwise. EntryExpress shall process all entries for our club customers; electronic or otherwise. EntryExpress will not charge a fee for any entries mailed to us for your club’s event. EntryExpress club customers are considerate of the wants and needs of the entrants. Our goal is to work as hard as possible to make certain your entrants are happy with your decision to be an EntryExpress club.

    To our Entrant Customers
    You are protected with us! The AKC Rulebook is very clear regarding discrimination and giving consideration to the number of entries you submit. AKC policy on entry agents (i.e. anyone entering a dog they do not own) is equally clear. EntryExpress entrants will never be at the mercy of an “entry service” setting entry restrictions or complicated and subjective fee structures.
    While not every club chooses EntryExpress to print their catalogs, you can still enter any scheduled AKC Retriever Field Trial or Hunting Test using EntryExpress.net, we’ll gladly mail them for you. In some circumstances, the club may elect to use an entry service that penalizes you financially for not using their online entry system; EntryExpress will pay those penalty fees on your behalf when we mail in your entries. We are THAT committed to doing the right thing!

    In drastic contrast to a recently published statistic, events using an online entry service averaged over 15 mailed entries per event over the last two years, 12,468 mailed entries to be exact. We welcome your mailed entry. Mailed entries have been free for over half of a century and EntryExpress is working for you to keep it that way.

    Summary
    EntryExpress is and always has been YOUR entry service. You ask; we deliver. It’s that simple. Our track record proves it.

    1,554 events/185,100 entries strong… and growing!

    Much appreciated.
