    Nor did it work for me...there was a scratch for one of the tests I was interested in and the application did not inform me...

    FOM or WEEEEEE... If you want to get in on a scratch for the Golden test you need to get a hold of EE and get on the list. I know the CFRC has a wait list and because of a scratch someone got in. Hope you get in where ever you were planning to run!

    Can an amateur compete against pro's? Go look at the MN stats and that should answer it.

    Doug it didn't work for me or a friend either.
    I think the guy thought that I should have been aware of this technology, but I will be the first to admit that I am not tech savvy, This thread went on for 29-30 pages before the guy posted that link. This thread had 24.000+ views and he was the first to post it. You would think that if it was common knowledge that this ap was out there, it wouldn't have taken 24,000 views before someone posted this.

    Paul,

    I am not talking about competing at the event, instead I was talking about competing to get entered into the event. The three closest hunt tests for me, KC , Missouri Valley and Lincoln all filled up in under an hour. If you look at KC for example (closes Aug 19th) you will see that 2 handlers, Lyle Steinman and Chris Akin have 48 dogs entered. Kind of hard to qualify for the MN when you cannot get entered in MN tests.

    Edit
    I've changed my opinion.
    After talking with some folks and gaining a better understanding about the MN qualifications and limited entry mh tests etc.
    It's obvious somethings need to be changed but until all shakes out satisfactorily singling out pro entries is a bit unfair.
    So hope it all gets sorted out quickly in a way that works for everyone.
    Cheers
