Version History

Updated Databases for Users of prior Versions

Special Info for Users of Previous Version 2.0

  • Will now handle Multi-Day Shows (up to 4 days) with a Combined Catalog for all days. User can specify to use 'day of week' or a Club Code if doing a Cluster Show. Also, the first and last date for the show can be specified (to handle week-long Nationals) with specific days for certain classes.
