The Free free for all concept is the greatest 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.
