Hello CCHRC members and friends,
I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer and have been able to spend some good time with their dogs. With August comes the time we all start thinking about hunting season, hunt test and field trials starting at the end of the month and in September. Also, we began our monthly training days, so far for the fall we have them scheduled on Sunday, Sept 17, at goose lake and Saturday, October 28th, the location is TBA. We will try to have flyers available and will update the web page when we know.
CCHRC would also like to send out a big thank you to Ron Stahl. For those that haven’t heard, Ron and his wife Suzette have moved out of state to pursue other opportunities. Ron has been a member since 2008 and has held many roles in the club, president, secretary, HT secretary, Super singles chairman NAHRA test chairman and some of these he did multiple times along with many other events. He also manages our website, keeping the club current with technology to get information out to people. Ron was a key figure in handling the AKC paper work to get the club approved to hold AKC events. At events and training days, Ron was always one of the key people first there to set up, work the event and last there to tear down. CCHRC wishes Ron, his family, and dogs good luck on their new adventures. Whatever club gets him next will be lucky.
As we move into the fall, we need to start our planning for our 2018 hunt test. The tentative dates will be April 21st and 22nd. We will be looking for people to fill committee positions HT secretary, Gun Captain, equipment manager and head marshal. Also this year we would like to add a co-chairman to help Jason O. Smith with this position. If anyone is interested, please contact Jason ASAP so we can get our paperwork into AKC and decide if we are moving forward with a 2018 hunt test.
At our September training day, we will be holding a general business meeting and will be sending out an agenda with our September newsletter. If you have items or ideas you would like to discuss, please forward them to Jason Smith and/or bring them with you to discuss. Once again we are always looking for new things to do and ways to do it.
See you all soon and thanks, Central Coast Hunting Retriever Club.
