 ---> Please note that the time blocks are done MANUALLY by hand as there is no way to sort this by last name in the NADD Portal. Yes, that means I literally sat down and wrote every single persons name in backwards (last name, first name, then dog name). There will be spelling mistakes and other mistakes and I apologize for that, I am only human. This sheet is just used for you/us to separate everyone into block times.... we have all the 'official NADD stuff' to use for entry, data, etc that is all 100% correct with names, what you entered, etc so have no fear! <--
