Events!

Well, the hunting test and field trial seasons are upon us!

I, for one, didn't quite get all the stuff accomplished during the off-season that I had hoped, nonetheless I've got my sights set on running some trials. Unfortunately, with work, unavoidable social events, and a couple judging assignments, it looks as though I'll only be able to run two trials ... majorly bummed about that!

So who's running what this spring?

Teal and I should be finishing off her JH title this weekend. The hosting club warned us to bring hip waders because the fields and even the parking lot are flooded! We'll be starting on Senior next month. If we find some tests to go to I think we're going to give upland tests a try too.

Best of luck to you and Teal! Hope you'll post photos when the weekend's over

I'm still trying to figure out how far I want to travel for Ellie's junior tests. The best ones close to me are only having one day of junior. I kind of hate to spend the time and hotel money for one run, would rather knock it out, but don't want to spread it out into hot weather either. Guess I need to get on it.....

We have a double JH, SH on Long Island. Visit Long Island's wineries while you are up here.

Maisey is entered in a double senior next month. I will finish her senior (she's going to need 5 without a JH title) when she gets back from Louisiana in May. If all goes well she will be running Master in June.

Is that the White City double header? If so, we'll be running with you

Good luck to everyone!

We will be focusing on training for the spring and summer - working towards our WCX and SH, and running tests, I am HOPING, by late summer or fall. Our WCX has a blind, and blinds are going to be our big focus for the next few months. We have not done any blind work on water. Hoping to get back in water by May.

No, it is Lake Charles in LA. So I won't be running her. Good luck next month!!

PS If you will be running senior at the Memorial Day double header at Sauvie, I'll see you there

Things are still cold here. It will still be a while before the test and trial season gets rolling.

Alaska has such a short season! We are going to have a late spring with very cold water and ice still on the ponds in early May. Which means no early season water work in Alaska.

In mid-May we have a double header NAHRA I'll run my dogs in.
Then in June I have 2 derbies, July 2 derbies, and August 2 derbies.
I'll run a couple of spaniel hunt test weekends with Lucy to finish her SHU in July and August.
I'll be judging one junior test in July.
We'll have our club WC/X in July.
Plan to run Riot in senior tests when I have time (we only have 3 double header weekends). If he's ready we'll move up to master.
And if I am really daring, I'll enter Riot in a Q or 2.
All of the above depends on money and time off of work.

Then in September I'd like to go to GRCA national and run Riot there. How he does this summer will decide what we enter at national.
