  1. #1

    Default EE- event closed last night at 20 dogs and just a minute ago 22

    Most of morning event showed 20 dogs closed last night at midnight. All of sudden, there are two more dogs added.

    How does that work?

    I don't know, but here's a guess. I believe they accept mailed-in entries. Maybe they had a couple that arrived yesterday but didn't get entered into the computer until this morning?

    Kelly
    Kelly Cassidy (person)

    SR Maple Cassidy CDX JH RE (golden retriever)
    Alder Cassidy CDX RE (standard poodle chipmunk chaser)
    plus the "old ladies" (2 elderly mix-breed rescue girls)

    Good Point, so mail in entries could go past close date? Interesting. Oh well, more the merrier.

    That's not what I meant. The mail-in entry may have ARRIVED AT THE EE OFFICE before the deadline, but the EE staff might not have gotten it entered in the computer system until this morning.

    If you want the direct & most accurate answer, rather than speculate on a forum why not make that toll-free call to EE & ask them? There is no agenda among EE personnel other than to provide the best customer service possible & they will give a very truthful, direct and straight-forward answer. They are the same folks who have worked at EE for years & the rules that govern entry and entry closing have remained the same under current and previous ownership. Among the reasons which could change entries after closing but prior to finalization are computer problems at EE, scratches made prior to closing but changed after closing and prior to finalization, complance with a directive from the AKC and possibly enter mail-in entries that were received at EE prior to the closing but not entered electronically until after the electronic closing time. Point is there are two (and only two) full time employees at EE doing a great job to keep up with all the work, handle the numerous weekly calls to correct entries that have been entered by owners or handlers with errors, interface with the club administrators on a number of subjects, correct dog names to match AKC registrations in some cases, split flights in AKC HTs that exceed AKC maximums, handle refunds, collect past due fees, layout catalogs, have catalogs printed & shipped ...among other duties, foremost among those duties being to comply with the rules and procedures that govern the entry process. And to do all those tasks and more at very reasonable labor rates. Why not give them a call rather than imply some impropriety.

    David, I did send an email and got the answer. very legitamite reason and was not trying to imply improprieties. Just hadn't seen it happen before.
    In regards to work load on these two ladies sounds like a managment decision if they are requried to handle more than they should. I know they work hard at reasonable labor rates.
    Thanks to those ladies for their response.
