Deadline to sign up
« on: May 15, 2019, 06:57:35 PM »
Hello all. :)
This is my first time for championships.
So as I try to save up the money to be able to attend...
When is the deadline to sign up?

Thanks!

Now that we are running two rings,   You're actually pretty safe to wait a little while.

Had we done a single ring I would say enter as soon as possible, since we would have to limit entries to around 275.    But with two rings we can run a lot more dogs in a day, so our entry limit now is closer to 340.       

So short answer is you can wait a little while and still be safe :)

Thank you. :)

Someone else told me that I should enter by the beginning of August. Would you agree?
Iím doing my best to save up money, but Iím no where near close enough yet.

July 31st is technically the dead line for signing up.

Second chance entries typically happen up until August 15th, which is basically another way to get in if you're short on points or something similar.

I honestly did look for that deadline date, and couldn't find it anywhere. 

Since the last day for qualifying is also July 31st, shouldn't competitors have at least a day or two to make their final decision about entering? Granted, there is the second draw, but especially if you're waiting to hear on a VT run, or get your trial results and tally everything up, it's nice to have some leeway.

The last day to enter Champs, either way, is August 15th?

Correct, August 15th is last chance.

If we had enough entries that we filled on August 1st there would be no second chance entries, but that's not gonna happen this year :)
