I have an entry in the test that closed so quick for a small fee of $150 I will tell you the exact moment I will scratch so you can enter your dog....JUST KIDDING!!
Before you jump on the Pro Secretary conspiracy theory.... A pro with 20 dogs entered might have 20 people watching entry express to see when a test opens. If I had a dog with a pro and an upcoming test in a MN area I might well be watching very closely when a test opens and tell my Pro. Knowing the Secretary also helps, not because they will tell me but because I knw when the work and when they are likely to be setting up the test on EE and opening it.
One final thought... since demand has out grown supply now would be a great time for certain clubs to add $10 or $20 or $30 to their entry fees. This is the other way to control the number of entries and you might be able to hire workers for the test to make it run smoother.
This also might be a good time for new clubs to be formed in regions where a spike in entries is expected...

Ok, good idea but not allowable. My mistake and I should have known that. I am reminded that we have not done that. We have paid pros to deliver birds from GA since getting birds in Florida is difficult. That has been gas and hotel. Not an incentive to run the test, incentive to bring us birds.

I think that would be more likely to impact the AM entry.
