September 2021 Water Trial Entry
Please review the September 2021 Premium List and complete the entry form below to enter the September 2021 Water Trial.
Trial entry limits and Friday trial day
We expect a large number of trial entries for the Flowing Lake trial, especially if the Canadian border opens in August. We want everyone to have a chance to trial for two days and not have to turn anyone away. To do that, we may need to add an additional trial day on Friday, and distribute entries across three days so that each team ends up with two trial opportunities.
We won’t know whether this is necessary until the lottery date when we have received the bulk of the entries. At that time we will evaluate the need to add an extra trial day on Friday. We will make every effort to accommodate people’s work schedules and availability, but cannot guarantee specific trial days for a team. We will notify you as soon as the need for an extra day is determined.
Trial entries by Canadian teams
As of now, the US border is closed through August 21. This happens to be the trial closing date as well. We expect that there will be an announcement about the ongoing border status well before Aug 21, so we should know about Canadian access by the trial closing date. Any Canadian entries can then be withdrawn by midnight on Aug 21 for a full refund. If the timing of an opening announcement varies, we may modify this cutoff to a later date.
Trial entry information
• Lottery Date: Lottery deadline is Saturday July 31, 2021. All Regular entries received by the lottery deadline will be treated equally. If entry limit is exceeded by July 31, a random drawing will be held August 1, 2021. Remaining entries, if any, will be drawn for wait-list position. We may add an extra trial day on Friday to accommodate as many entries as possible.
• Closing Date: Trial closing date is Saturday August 21, 2021. All entries received after July 31 up to closing date will be accepted on a first-come basis as space is available.
Entry fee is $45 per class.
We do not anticipate that day-of-trial entries or move-ups will be available. If you qualify the first day you may move up for the second day.
