: field trial. The trouble with that format
: (1 hour qualifiying, 3 hour finals) is that
: in todays world, with as many championships
: as there are, few professionals can commit
: the time to spend at one trial when a 3 hour
: win doesn't mean any more or pay any more
: than a one hour championship. Plus the Free
: for all is just that, no qualifying, no
: bullshit requirements, just show up, pay
: your entry fee, and run your dog. If I
: recall right (and this is second hand)
: Victor McNaughton, in his early days in
: field trials, entered one of his personal
: dogs in the FFA, and qualified her for the
: Finals. Happpy New Year.
