    Default Hunt Tests and Field Trials

    The Master Amateur has been canceled. The Spring Grand has been canceled. Local Hunt Tests are canceling like popcorn. Who knows what the Master National will do. One would expect even greater pressure on both Finished and Master Tests. Missouri Bootheel has cancelled for this weekend. I am in Central Kentucky weekend of March 28, but will not be surprised if it cancels also.

    Like all economic sectors, the dog training and testing business, is affected. I hope those who have responsibility are thinking about what actions to take.

    I know of one field trial that cancelled because they had out of town judges who did not want to fly and I don’t blame them.

    It’s a complicated decision, but with the health concerns of ALL considered, taking the high road seems prudent. Cancellation is warranted.

    Who is going to eat the $4.85 thru EE with regards to entries/trials that are cancelled, the hosting club or EE?

    What is Faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead. ​HEBREWS 11:1

    We are in the midst of a global pandemic. There is an exponential growth of a disease that has killed thousands. The stock market is crashing. The world economy is entering a recession.

    I think cancelling field trials is the socially responsible thing to do. I have a hard time generating much interest in EE refunds at the moment.

    Is $4.85 going to break any person that entered a HT or FT, no. Could it break a club, yes. Would it put strain on EE, yes. Pennies on the weekend.

    From EE



    Entry Express refund options are listed below:

    I can send the entry monies to the club via check and the club can handle the refunds.
    OR
    I can refund back to the card used:
    The club can choose to cover the $4.85 service fees the entrant paid at the time of entry and the $4.50 removal fee
    OR
    The club can just cover the $4.50 removal fee and the entrant pay the $4.85
    OR
    The club can just cover the $4.85 service fee and the entrant pay the $4.50 removal fee.

    There will be a $23.11/hr (minimum 1 hr) labor expense and the club will still be responsible for the credit card fees.
