Calendar

Scroll down to the bottom for calendar notes. Check Premium Dates if you want to know when a premium is expected or has been posted.  If you have a problem displaying the calendar click here: Calendar problems

Each venue is actually a separate calendar. At the upper right corner of the calendar (next to Print) there is a little downward pointing triangle. If you click on the triangle, a list of the individual calendars will appear. You can select which organizations to view in the calendar. Click on an event for more information. For example, clicking on an AKC trial will bring up the AKC database information up through the fees (judging assignments are not usually available when the event is first created and are not included).

The date range next to the club name are the opening/closing dates for AKC trials. The following are some other indicators in the title:

  • (T) - indicates a tentative or corresponding event. 
  • (N) - indicates a night trial
  • P - indicates a premium/test schedule is available. In the Spring of 2016, I started adding links to the premiums in the calendar entries.
  • BS - Indicates a breed specific trial 

A tentative event is just a place holder that can be used for planning purposes. For most events, I will create a tentative entry for the following year shortly before or after the conclusion of an event. When I get an entry in the licensing organization schedule, I remove the tentative indicator. If I receive information from the club that a trial will not be held, I will remove the entry. AKC trials have pretty much fixed weekends but the geography is such that it is possible for a club to change weekends. Until a premium or test schedule is published any event can be changed. Even after the premium is published, the event can be cancelled or relocated to a different site. 

If your calendar program can handle the iCal format, you can subscribe to these individual calendars - click here for more info.

If you use a Google calendar, you can copy specific events to your own calendar. Click on the event and click on the “copy to my calendar” link at the bottom.

For events outside of Florida, I normally select events that are at least four days long (and I would consider the drive from Plant City) or national championships for organizations with high participation here in Florida (AKC, CPE, USDAA & UKI - organizations with > 25 trial days in Florida). For example, I will list the four/five day trials in Perry, GA but not the three day weekend trials. If you can think of an event that I should include, use the contact webmaster link below to suggest it.

Actual calendar colors may vary a bit. The calendar colors in the legend box are from my Google web view of the calendar (after the event passes, the color becomes a pastel). The ones in the calendar above are slightly different shades. If you add the calendar to your own calendar, the color may be yet a different shade (but in this case, you can usually make it any color you want).
