Hello CCHRC Members,
It’s been a busy spring so far for the members and the club. We hope you have been meeting those training goals for you and your dogs, along with having fun.
Saturday April 8th will be are next training day at the Porter Ranch outside Nipomo in San Luis Obispo. All the information for directions and to register are on the clubs website.
Entries open for our hunt test March 29, 2017 and will close April 10th. Be sure to get entered in our first AKC hunt test and have the right to say I was at the “first one”. Everyone from the club that is there please be prepared to help. Most of the key roles are filled, but as you know there is always something that needs to be done. We will be holding a BBQ tail gate Saturday night so if you can help with cooking, set up and tear down please let Carolyn Romane know.
After the hunt test our next training day will be May 20th, the location is still TBD.
We still need entries for the basic and advance judging seminar to be held June 2, 3 and 4th in Lost Hills. We have a minimum amount of students we need for this to happen, so please get registered on entry express if you have not yet. Coming from those who have attended before, they cannot express enough how much it helped them in the field running dogs. Even if you can’t make the basic on Friday please try for the advance on Saturday/ Sunday. The club has received a Grant from the MNRC to offset cost of this event. We would hate to cancel it and lose this great opportunity locally for the club. If you’re interested in being a test dog at the event please let Jason O. Smith know, we need 3 of each stake levels.
Looking into the future for summer time events, we will try to plan some training days around the summer heat. It’s been brought up to me to host maybe a non-dog event this summer. Examples are a club party BBQ, a range day shooting skeet/ sporting clays. If you have some other ideas please share.
As always we will finish this newsletter letting you know this is your retriever club, please share any ideas you have you would like to see the club do.
See you soon,
Central Coast Hunting Retriever Club
