Bottom filter bar :

Trial Category:  Select what your interested in , IE: novice cocker ,springer open , retriever novice ,, all spaniels etc etc as many or as few as you need. each category has a colour assigned so you can easily identify different stakes on the diary.(In the near future we will make this easier to navigate we prioritised making the diary live with this small inconvenience above an empty functional diary!!)

Club: Select as many or as few clubs you are interested in.(In the near future this list will be placed into alphabetical order to make this easier  we prioritised making the diary live with this small inconvenience above an empty functional diary!!)

Stake: This basically does the same as trial category but removes the parent level entries.

Venue: If you would like to view trials at certain venues relative to the cover,game supply  etc ,then this is perfect for you!!you will of course need to have previous knowledge of the grounds.

Organise: If you know the secutary of the clubs your in ,this will make it easier than using the club filter .
