QR Code created for Master National CallBacks

Callbacks_qcWhat is a QR Code and why do we need one?

A QR code is a simple machine-readable code consisting of an array of black and white squares, typically used for storing URLs or other information for reading by the camera on a smartphone or tablet.

The QR code (sometimes called Q code) we created will allow your smartphone or tablet to display the Master National CallBacks page from our web site.

All that is needed is a way for your camera to translate or read this code.

It takes literally 1 minute for someone with an iPhone (IOS) or Android phone or tablet to find and install a QR code reader.

There are many free Apps that you can use to read the Q code. To download this app, just go to your Apple or Google Play store and search for QR Code or Bar Code Reader. Quick Scan – Barcode Scanner by iHandy is one such example. Once installed just scan our QR CODECallbacks_qcAnd Voila! You will see a display of the 2015 Master National CallBacks.

We will print the Master National Q Code in the 2015 Master National Catalog and in various signs and places throughout the event.

Enjoy, and we hope our efforts will enhance your Master National experience!

MN Invitations: Address corrections

2015 InviteAlmost 1,300 Invitations for the 2015 Master National were mailed out to owners of qualified retrievers this year.  In just one batch of invitations sent out last month, almost 40 invitations were returned for incorrect addresses.

The reason for so many missed invitations appears to be the result of owners (or their agents) not entering or updating the correct information in their dog’s profile on Entry Express.  We are using EE address data to mail the Master National invitations.

Please be aware of this, and if information changes on your dog, change your Entry Express profile.  Money and very precious volunteer time is being wasted because of this.  We have received many complaints that “invitations” were NOT sent, when almost all of these were the result of incorrect addresses.

Thank you for helping us to make things run a bit smoother.
