The Beta testing of Show Assist has been completed with great success. A big thank you to everyone who participated!

The Beta data has been cleared and the system is officially live for events. All exhibitors are welcome to register and capture their dogs and information. Note that users that registered as part of the Beta test will need to reregister and capture their dogs again.

We are excited to announce that system will be used by George KC, Outeniqua KC and the Australian Shepherd Club of the W.C. for their shows in June. The setup of these shows is almost complete and they should be open for entry during the week.

Online card and QR Code payments will be made available in the next coming weeks.
