    Default Canadian trial entry fees

    I'm going to run several trials in BC in May. Premiums all say funds must be paid in Canadian dollars. Does an International money order from the USPS work?

    Thanks

    Not with the club in question, but as long as the money order is in Canadian $'s you shouldn't have an issue. If you're not sure I'd shoot a note off to the test secretary listed on the premium to check.

    If you are using the postal system send it early as it will most likely go to Montreal first then work it's way to BC. Make sure you have the proper amount of postage. HPW

    There are only a few people who can answer your question with authority, please contact the Test Secretary for each of the trials you wish to enter. FWIIW, I would not turn down a M/O in CND, but I am not a club official. Hope to see at the BCLRC trial.

    I'll be there, I'm judging JR on May 11. I found out the money orders I can buy from the USPO are called International but are are still made out in USD and not CND. Waiting to hear back from a couple test secretaries now on the M/O issue.

    The sad thing is that it is a piece of cake for us Canadians to get a US money order. Do not understand why US banks have such a problem acknowledging their biggest trading partner and offering the same convenience to have CAD money orders to their clients.

    Ok, maybe the problem was me. Story: I sent my entries into the VIRC Trial (Vancouver Island). Then my dog came into heat close to the trial date. I called the FT Sec to scratch (actually email) and got a response that they had not received my entry. About 2 or 3 weeks after the trial I got the envelope returned from Montreal with a not enough postage mark up. So that's why I said send early and make sure you have enough postage. I feel better now that I finally fessed up. Harry

    Real close to par 1CDN = 1.03US as of today, but it must be trouble with the banks accepting a check or M/O. Last year I ran 4 trials with the same club and entered before the deadline but paid the entry fee in cash at the trial, not sure every club will allow that. A bit of a hassle as the bank in Canada I stopped at would only exchange up to $100.

    I'm sure it will work out but you gotta love Entry Express despite the admin fee of $3.50.
