Entries for the National Finals must be postmarked on or before Aug. 1. Entries are now closed.
No refunds 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 spot is filled. It is the handler’s responsibility to make sure your message was received and proper action was taken. Entries/waitlist updates are posted within 24 hours after cancellations are received, so please check the website to see if you are still on the entry list. If you are not or if you have questions, email the secretary
Beginning September 10, the only way to get into the Finals is to personally sign in at the secretary’s trailer before 5:00 p.m. on the Sunday, Sept. 23 (the day before the finals starts). At 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, the Secretary will fill any spots resulting from scratches with dogs from the sign-up sheet. Subsequent scratches (made after Sunday at 5:00) will also be filled from the sign-up sheet or by qualified alternate dogs when appropriate (see below). The dogs on the sign up sheet and alternates have to be entered by the August 1 entry deadline and will be given entry into the trial based on qualification points. NO EXCEPTIONS TO THESE RULES SO PLEASE DON’T ASK.
An entrant must notify the Trial Secretary 30 minutes before the class begins each day (first dog to the post) in order to substitute an alternate dog (listed on entry form). An alternate dog must have 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. Handlers on the sign-up sheet are required to check in with the Secretary 30 minutes prior to the first dog on the field to be eligible to run in place of any scratches for that day.
|ALL HANDLERS WHO ARE SCRATCHING, EVEN ON THE WAITING LIST, PLEASE EMAIL THE SECRETARY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
