The board voted to fill drop outs at the national finals up until the day before the trial starts.
To be guaranteed your money back, you must drop out before September 1. After that, the only way to be given a refund is to have your spot filled.
With that in mind, The secretary will continue to update the website, entry's received, on a daily basis. For the most part, it is updated withing the hour of receiving a cancellation. With that in mind, please do not call Francis to see if you are in. LOOK at the website. The website will be updated until the 6th of September.
After the 6th of September the only way to get into the finals is to personally be at the secretary's trailer on the Monday before the finals starts, before 5:00 pm, and sign the provided sheet.
(PLEASE, DO NOT ASK FOR EXCEPTION TO THIS. WE CANNOT MAKE AN EXCEPTION TO THIS PROCEDURE).
At 5 pm on that day, Francis will remove from the running order the cancellations made after the 6th and fill those spots with the dogs on the sign in sheet.
The dogs on the sign in sheet have to be entered by the August 1 entry deadline and will be given entry into the trial based on qualification points. Herbert Holmes
