So I need to figure out what will be running when we arrive and enter it now?  Gah.

Sounds like from what Chris said that no - you can't enter them now.  But you can enter DOS when you get there as long as it hasn't been set yet.  So depending on what you'd like to run and when you think you will get there - you might find someone else to enter your dogs DOS for you that morning.
Chris posted that the entries close Oct. 1.   I just entered Zia in a few side runs.

Based on email with run order the class order is Gamblers, TnG and Chances both days.

The runs begin around 9 am with Gamblers and TnG starts about 45 minutes later, when Gamblers finish Chances will begin and TnG finishes when it finishes.

So if you are coming in the afternoon, Chances is a safer bet. TnG is iffy depending on how the walk thru is done.

The run order sent out shows [class] Elite 1, Open 1, Nov 1 then Elite 2, Open 2, Novice 2

Will we run running Elite Elite, Open Open, Nov Nov except for TnG?

Sorry, I seem to be suffering from information overload with run order conflicts, move ups etc..... Can someone please tell me which side run class will run in the morning and which is in the afternoon? On the entry form it lists Chances above Jumpers and Gamblers, so does that mean that CC will be the morning side run class each day? Trying to figure out if I could enter a few CC without having conflicts with my 3 dogs in their Championship runs. Thanks.

This thread has covered a few items, last few posts were about Pre Trial.

All I know about side runs is one course will be built in morning and the other in the afternoon (4 hour blocks).

Not sure which class will be first and which later.

Also not sure how it works with classes that vary by level, and jump height. So if you have a novice dog in 12 inch jump height when would that jumpers run in that 4 hour Jumpers window?

As far as levels go,    the vast majority of dogs are in the elite level.

Off the top of my head I would say at least 80% of the side runs are at the elite level.

The vast majority of the time the courses are built, they will be at the higher levels.   And then we'll go down once we have reasonable belief that we can, whether that's because all the elite dogs have ran, or we know the dogs who haven't run aren't going to be coming around.

The most important thing to remember is this.

It's the side runs.  It's very relaxed.  The people are very nice.   And we're very accommodating.     Just check in with the folks running the ring that day, tell them when you're running and they can probably tell you everything you need to know.

Sadly unless we tried to coordinate the side runs with the main rings, they just have to be a bit fluid and done on the fly.   Which is why it's very relaxed and 'come as you please'

I would like to get my XL dog measured on Wednesday if possible. Would that happen before 9:00?

Absolutely!

Or we can measure them later in the day.   Long as we get it done before Thursday you're all good :)

Now that we've got a decent idea of entry numbers we are going to work on the schedule.   We don't have a ludicrous amount of runs this year, so we can start at a more reasonable time :)
Don't hold me to it, since I need to go through entries still, but we should be able to start at 9AM each day and still be done before 5PM.

We will be taking day of show entries, but it's going to be $15 per run.   So I would really recommend signing up ahead of time :)
