    I believe Mr. Brown resides in Alabama. He drives a van too, lol. Don't sweat it, everyone has bad ideas from time to time.

    Is this a letter u sent to him? Now I am afraid my ignorance on the procedures and trials may lead to what 2tall mentioned in his comment?

    So if you have sponsorship can you run amateur stake?
    Gentle in what you do. Firm in how you do it.

The majority of the RTF people have never been to or run a licensed field trial and thus they are unaware of procedures and the people who do. Strange that your dog and your passion are unknown within the city government. SEE YOU A__ I told you that just because you win an Open and Qualify for Nationals you are still a "NOBODY".

    If you define a majority as over half, I'm sure Lanse is correct about that. Without a formal poll I would guess the number to be around 20%-30%. Hunt test on the other hand would be a much higher number. Just my unscientific perception.

    There was a poll on this a while back. While not scientific, it appears that the % of folks who do run FTs are higher than John's gut http://www.retrievertraining.net/for...eld+trial+poll

    As far as I understand yes you can ran under an amateur status. Under the rules to be considered a pro, you must be getting paid to train dogs.
    If sponsorship make you a pro then all these people that are in the Tri-Tronics IC would be considered pros.

    I noticed that this poll was done in 2009. I know my focus changed after this time. What might be really interesting, if someone wants to set it up, would be a new poll and contrast it to this one to see how things have changed. . . or not!

    Not so fast in dissing John's gut. Looks to me as if Mr. Atkinson has about 15 times as many members on rtf as the number of "votes" cast.

    Has anyone contacted AKC Performance Events to ask them if "sponsorship" (the acceptance of cash, goods, or services) has an effect on amateur status?
