Hopefully, when these tests fill up early, the RC's will have time and resources to open it up to more participants by adding a flight or two. That could solve a whole bunch of problems!

We've had the same problem up here with a couple tests as well, I can also tell you a 60 dog master is no fun for the judges either, know of a couple that said never again.. I don't feel it's a pro problem it's a system problem, there just trying to make a living and have found a nich, with people willing to pay them to run there dog at a level where they should be running there own dog, one other observation the past couple of weekends is that just because a guy/gal has there kennel name on the side of there truck and has a bunch of entries that doesn't mean there a "PRO" witnessed some terrible handling by people getting paid to do it..
Hang on... 50 minutes to fill one test and 15 minutes to fill another, filled by pros primarily?
That means someone is getting the heads up as to EXACTLY when the test will be finalized so that can sit and enter multiple dogs quickly.
If that's the case there are a whole bunch of people involved and it's not a very fair situation.
Just what the sport needs long term, more ways to close it off to the regular Joe.
Entering dogs that you think might be ready and scratching them at the last minute is a real problem created by people who are too selfish to realize they are blocking other people who have dogs that are truly ready, in the name of making a $$ or chasing a $10 master national plate.
