When I used to run alot in Canada with my MR TRU dog, I would write a personel check and based on the exchange rate make sure I had a couple $ extra just in case the rates changed by the time it got there. I would mark it "entry fee & donation", never had a problem at BRANDON or MGDA. In fact If I sent to much they would say You've got money coming back and I would say it's a donation. God, I loved going up there, the greatest people! Be prepared to party!

Thanks for the correction, now if we could just get a better deal on the fuel cost per liter.

Again the differences. I was able to open a US bank account with a debit card and checks through my Canadian bank.

I have trialed in Canada for 35 years first in obedience, then hunt tests, then field trials. I used to contact the secretaries and ask them if I could write a personal check for them to hold onto until I got there and then trade the check for Canadian cash. I was never turned down. Of course, that was when the U.S. dollar was worth a lot more than the Canadian dollar so they wouldn't have been out money if I didn't show up. I opened a Canadian checking account awhile back and now I don't have to worry about it.
it usually takes 2 weeks for my entries to arrive to canada usually triple postage is required and i usually write a check for little
over the amount. the secretaries have always cashed and given me the difference at the trial . i did have an account in canada
no problem being a yank used the scotia bank. never heard of a bank not wanting to hold your money
Thanks for the suggestions everyone, right now it looks like I'll send a personal check for the club to hold then pay cash at the trial.
If Canadian Clubs have a number of entries from US owners they could simply set up a standard PayPal account to process entries. You can now easily accept payment in a number of currencies. US/CDN or CDN/US should be a snap.
I didn't dig into it fully but this PayPal link will get you started in the right direction.
You can even setup a web store to accept payment in numerous currencies.
I still have a Canadian check I never cashed due to the PIA. Souvenir from winning a National Calcutta.
