We have a nice selection of events this year. Some overlaps but not too bad. All of our hunt test weekends are double headers. We have one weekend with a double header hunt test and a WC/X on the same weekend. We also have several golden retriever people judging field trials, hunt tests and our WC/X.

Let me know if anyone is interested in getting some more information about attending our events. Alaska Airlines is the best at flying dogs. They charge $100 each way. The weather here in the summer is mostly cool and low humidity. Where else can you watch whales on your way to a hunt test?
We also have dog shows outdoors in May and July that are not on here. Also there are a several outdoor obedience trials in the summer. Let me know if anyone is interested in those schedules also.
