Yes, I too loved the swap option. Most of my trial locations are at least 6 hours away so I look for trials that offered the swap. With the travel expenses, it helps to be able to have an extra shot at my weakest class. With all the new options and the new class of gamblers Iím hoping I wonít end up seeing less opportunities to run the class. Anyways thatís just my thoughts on the subject. 😃

I like the swap option as it allows the competitor to pick what their team needs to work on.  I hope that this is reconsidered even with all the new options out there.

I too will miss the opportunity to "swap" when available.
Since it didn't take any extra trial time, and even with the new options.....oh well.

Wholeheartedly agree!  Duffie has had the Regular and Jumpers requirements for a NATCH for some time now, but has always struggled with Chances, as he does not like to go that far from his handler.  He dropped back down to Novice Chances after the Cups were announced, and was able to earn his Silver Achievement Cup last month!

As a competitor, I am very sorry to see this option go.  Granted, there are now more options, but with the Swap Option, each individual competitor can choose what runs THEY want/need rather than just  take what the majority seem to want.

My trial applications for March, April and October were submitted with the Swap option planned for Friday. Will I need to change things around for those trials now? I have competitors from out of town who were already planning on the swap option for March & April.

Hi Everyone,
    Chris and I chatted briefly and while we understand the reasons some would like to keep swap, with the new class options and opening up huge opportunities to offer way more than clubs have ever been able to, we will not be offering the Swap option for 2020. 

I do understand some clubs will be upset with this, but Chris and I are hoping the positives of the new class listing will outweigh this.

Thank you,

Amanda and Chris

I would also like to put in my vote to keep the swap option. My Friday classes are similar to Lisa's. Personally I always need regular, so I like the swap option for Friday so those who want chances/jumpers can choose those and those of us who need regular, can choose those. People in our area have gotten really good at filling out their entry forms correctly for swap and it went really well this year!

Thanks! :)

Question for Amanda.

We have to get our trial app in this week, otherwise pay higher fees.  We tried the swap option last year and liked it.  If Chris decides to allow clubs to still offer the swap option, can we amend our trial app once he returns with the verdict?

I agree.  The swap is a great option.  I rarely am at trials that offer it, but it's awesome when I'm at one that does.  Hope you keep it as an option.   :)
