NEW! Downloadable Run Orders for each class of stock
Please note: 110 entries were received postmarked on the opening day. This necessitated a random draw to determine which entries would make it into the trial. We are sorry that not everyone could get in, but that seems to be what happens at these pre-trials. To see who got into what class of stock check out the Draw Results.
The draw was conducted on a random basis. The procedure was to take each separate entry from the first day and write a number on the back (ranging from 1 to 110.) Then using a random number generator we selected entries from the stack. No names were visible until after the selection was made and the entry was turned over to put the information into the data base.
For those who have not read it before, here is the rule for conducting a draw as stated in the Stock Dog Rules:
The entry limit per Judge will be accepted in postmark order. In case of duplicate postmark entries, a random draw will be conducted to determine the order of acceptance. Each draw will entitle the dog to be entered in each of the classes available. If the class of stock is full, the dog’s entry (for that class of stock) will be put on a waiting list in order of receipt. If an envelope drawn has entries for more than one dog, each dog will compete for entry separately in the draw order.
