You're welcome. I hope the event is a success. For what it may be worth, I think you'll find most pros will require some things of anyone hosting a quality seminar, including the items mentioned; birds, guns, holding blinds, et al. It's much like hosting a hunt test or field trial. Grounds and equipment are largely the responsibility of the host.

What most pros who do seminars usually provide are handouts, and bring demonstration dogs, personal training equipment, sometimes a white board & markers to diagram drills, maybe orange flags to flag out their chosen drills in preferred locations on the grounds. I bring books & DVDs for those who desire to purchase them at the event. We do book signings each afternoon during Q&A.

I admire you for taking this on. I think you will be glad you did, even though putting on any event of this type is a lot of work.

Evan... the trainer is asking her to use her property... I think that is different than a "club" hosting and inviting a speaker. I agree with you completely but this person knows Barb, and wants to use her property, due to the location. So for him it would be "BYOB".... bring your own birds. LOL

If you decide to go with it, do you need any help the day of it? The only concern I would have if I was boarding one of my dogs there is the gunfire, if Tess was there she would really freak out because of the noise. Like I said, if you need help in the planning/execution of it, just let me know. I would lend you a hand.

Thanks! This is going to be his show, he will be bringing his helpers along, so I really don't plan to do anything at all.
My Tiny is terribly gun phobic, too, so we'd make sure it's at the farthest end of the property if there is any at all. I sort of doubt there will be, as I suspect this will be a VERY beginning seminar for people who have no field experience at all and I can't imagine him exposing those dogs to guns.

Even so, I think you're doing a lot for the pro and for all those who attend. Even just covering the insurance aspect, and opening up your property is very generous of you. I hope it turns out well, and leads to more of the same.

Will it be on any ground that you have farmed and planted or will it be on vacant land?

It's likely to be in the weed, errr, alfalfa/hay field (have you seen the new field that they planted? SHEEEESH). People tramping around on it can only improve it.

the tramping around shouldn't hurt the alfalfa field, parking wouldn't be good though, especially if the field is just coming up. parking could be on the edge of the field, won't hurt anything there.

The part of the property he'd be using you wouldn't have to drive on. Easy to walk it.
I just have to be sure no one sees where my "wild asparagus" patch is ;)
Geeze is that code for marijuana? HAHAHAHA

did you know that since hops and marijuana are of the same family you can graft hops tops onto marijuana roots? (or so I"ve been told....)
