Lindsey it was just a question, I thought maybe I missed something because someone asked what if they won and couldn't go this year to champs. And when Chris responded that you would get a discount on next years entry fee. So I wasn't sure if winning regional gave you a bye into champs including entry fees.

I agree with Lindsey.  I don't think a discount is really necessary.

I'm kind of not liking the idea of the regional events as it seems it's just stirring up all those old conversations about locations.  If you now add a discount that just adds fuel to the fire.  I would assume if the regionals continue they would move around each year so people from most areas will eventually have one closer to them. 

We travel 5 hours to multiple regular trials a year just to get some NADAC trials on our calendar.

My thoughts on this ... my $0.02 worth:

if you earn a bye it is only good for the year it's earned. 
If you earn it and don't use it, you still have "bragging rights"
I've earned several byes into Cynosports,  but I've never used them.
However, i did brag on both of dogs who earned them.

There's no legit reason to do a free or even a discounted entry for the current or future.
Other venues where you earn a bye, its only good for the year, and there are no discounts on
entry fees. Clubs still have to have a profitable event after all.

I have to agree with others who say there should be no discount for future Champs.  If you qualify(or earn a bye) for a given year, that's for that year.  Who knows that will happen in the next year.  It's up to each individual to decide if they want to go to Champs where ever they are held.

Bragging rights are good and it is the incentive for many that know they won't be able to make the big event, but they know they could have!

Yep. I absolutely cannot afford to attend Champs on a "West" Year, but QUALIFYING IS STILL A GOAL, you know? It's a milestone and accomplishment that's tangible all on its own.
