With the World Championship coming up this month, this months column is dedicated to the most frequently
asked questions as it relates to the event.
- Deadlines Only those dogs that qualified via a Regional Qualifying Event (RQE) and were entered by the advanced deadline of September 4, 2021 are eligible to hunt in the World Championship. The deadline to confirm an entry at all zone locations is 5:00 pm local time on both Friday and Saturday nights. The deadline to return scorecards will be determined and announced at the event.
- Confirming Your Entry Your entry must be confirmed, at the event location, on both Friday AND Saturday night prior to the posted deadline. Note: The UKC Field Rep (MOH) will not take personal phone calls to confirm an entry as Conditional for a handler who may be running late. The entry would need to be confirmed by someone else and the handler must be present when their cast is called out or the dog will be scratched.
