There are so many things I would love to get involved in that just aren't offered in my area :(

Beginner Novice really wasn't that bad. I think it's a good place to start and get your foot in the obedience door. Sookie's automatic sits fell apart (she just didn't do them), leash got tight on the outside turn during the figure 8, and I had to give 2 commands on the recall (unheard of outside of the ring for her) and I STILL got scores in the 90s. So I say go for it. You will never know if you like it if you don't try.

Beginner novice is so much like rally novice you won't find it hard. I am always doing multiple events in single days now. Over Thanksgiving weekend I did RAE, open A obedience and agility three days in a row. That was too much. In the future I will keep days as either obedience or agility.

When you are in rally and obedience you just make sure you talk to the stewards and/or the judge for the rings you are in to let them know you may have conflicts. They want you to succeed and will generally be very helpful. I have never missed a ring because of conflicts.
