National Sheep Dog Finals – Nursery Entries
Nursery Entries Received
No refund after Sept. 1 in either the Open or Nursery Class unless there is a valid family medical or veterinary excuse. No exceptions. No refund even if your spot is filled. It is the handler’s responsibility to make sure your message was received and proper action was taken. Entries/wait list updates are posted within a few hours after cancellations are received, so please check the website to see if you are still on the entry list. If you are, email the secretary.
An entrant must notify the trial secretary before the class begins each day (first dog to the post) in order to substitute to an alternate dog (listed on entry form) provided the alternate dog has sufficient qualifying points to be eligible (for the Open) or qualifying legs (for the Nursery). An alternate dog will not be substituted if there is a dog on the sign up sheet that has a greater number of qualification points.
Part I, Rule 4 of the USBCHA Rules states: Members must be in good standing to earn points towards participation in the USBCHA Open Finals and qualifying legs for the USBCHA Nursery Finals. To participate in the USBCHA National Finals, one must also be a member in good standing of the American Border Collie Association (ABCA).
The ABCA is in the process of verifying membership. If you are entered in the Finals and are not a current member of the ABCA, please join prior to the commencement of the National Finals.
An application is available by clicking ABCA Membership Form
|Handlers are responsible for checking the nursery list to ensure the earned legs are correct. If they are not correct, they should contact the USBCHA secretary and/or the trial hosts. This must be done before running orders are drawn.|
