Correct.

They also usually ran by a group of judges, this allows the judges to run their own dogs.   
Tend to be VERY laid back, no gate stewards or yelling around for people to hurry up :)

It may take a couple minutes to get adjusted to the atmosphere but most everyone enjoys them 8)

Funraisers are awesome! Laid back, you get to know the judges, and usually priced very, very nice! We miss Nadia's Killawog Funraisers!

I learned more at Funraisers than probably all trials I've been to combined. 

Relaxed atmosphere; great folks willing to share their extensive knowledge base, especially with a newbie or struggling handler.  We've all been there (and some of us are perpetually in that state :-) just ask my dog Cooper)
