Hello CCHRC Members,
I hope everyone’s fall hunting and testing season is off to a wonderful start. CCHRC is happy to announce we have heard back from AKC and our application has been approved! Our board of directors did a great job on getting this done especially secretary Ron Stahl handling the paper work and hundreds of emails. With this news, now we have to start thinking about planning our first hunt test. We need members to step up and take some roles in the committee and positions at the hunt test. We will need a gun captain to handle our gunners, head marshal and stake marshals along with one of the most important positions is an experienced AKC HT secretary to work with Ron Stahl in preparing and submitting the paperwork properly. There is plenty of work to do in planning and the day of the test so if you’re interested please contact the HT chairman Jason O. Smith. Also remember HT committee members get preference in MH entries. We are looking at putting the test on in the spring of 2017 in Lost Hills at the CRTA Goose Lake training grounds so we will need to get planning and preparing fast. A lot of us members have been attending other clubs test for years, so remember it’s time for us to return the favor and do the hard work to put a test on for the other clubs to attend. CCHRC had a great reputation for putting on one of the best NAHRA test in the west, let’s carry that tradition on.
Other news, don’t forget to sign up for our training day November 5th, all the info is on the web page here. With the holidays coming up CCHRC has usually held a club holiday party, whether hosted at some ones house or a restaurant. If we have a member or members who are interested in planning one please contact Jason O. Smith.
Board of director elections are coming up soon, we will be sending forms out for nominations November 1st and voting by email December 1-31st. If you’re interested in a position or know someone who is please nominate them or yourselves. All positions are available President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasure and Members at large (3).
One other thing we would like to try this coming year is members sharing the planning and setting up of training days. It will be your responsibility to come up with location, dates, training set up and organization of the day. If you have an interest in organizing a day please let one of the board members know.
We would like to hold other events besides training days next year also so if you have an idea or interest in being a lead in an event please let us know. We would love to get back to holding a super singles and maybe a WC/ WCX.
One last thing the club is also looking for fundraising ideas, besides putting on events like HT’s and super singles we would like to explore other ideas to repair, replace and buy new equipment we will need for these events. So if you would like to help out in seeking donations or planning fundraising, lets us know.
As always if you have any questions or ideas for the club please let us know, remember the club can only be has good and active as its members.
