ShowSec is the team of Diana and Scott, Diana handles doing the actual show secretary work, dealing with entries, helping people etc. Scott does all of the geeky stuff like writing all of the code for the site and show management software, he even designed and built the custom electronics for our unique live results system.
We both pride ourselves on our attention to detail, we aim for perfection in what we do, we believe for instance that every run matters, even the bad ones!
Scott has a drive for innovation, and enjoys creating new features and systems for use by the agility community, often before people even realise that they need them!
We are proud to have our creations replicated by others as this reinforces that we are creating features which are wanted by the wider agility community.

To enter a show online using this site you must first Register

any shows that are accepting online entries through this site.

Entries may be edited by you at any time before the closing date, but once the closing date is reached, entries cannot be changed, added or deleted.

Catalogue files will normally be in PDF format, but other file types may be used from time to time, the file size and type is specified next to the download link.
A live video stream showing what is happening in near real time (there is about a 30 second delay).
Individual results are added to this site as they happen, run by run, as soon as a dog has completed its run the result is posted to the site immediately!
Live show results are currently used at some events only, we are still trialling this feature as due to its technical nature it cannot be used in all circumstances, for instance, having reliable internet access at the show.
Show results files are added to this site for any shows for which Diana is performing the show secretary function, or for events by other show secretaries which make use of this site.
Provided that internet access is possible at the show, results files will be added to this site as soon as the results have been confirmed by cross checking the computerized results against the score boards, which will be approximately 5 minutes after the final scribe sheets have been entered.
Typically the results are online moments before they are put on display at the show.
Results files will normally be in PDF format, but other file types may be used from time to time, the file size and type is specified next to the download link.
