We have typically gotten 8 - 10 from here. I'm hoping that we get a bunch more this year. I would like to coordinate a spot for all.of us to meet up.and shoot the breeze.

I've put it on the calendar. With any luck I'll be there. No surprise, I'll be hanging out by the dog events.
Preserve game, use a well trained retriever.

Glad to hear you're interested!

I can get more details, but it is certainly going to involve water retrieves. It is a beauty of a spot. It is very low pressure and laid back. We get everybody from beginners to pro. You can register that day no problem.

Hope to see you there!

I will get the test details Monday. What I do know is that all dogs and handlers of all experience levels are welcome. And we will be doing water events. I hope you make it!

Definately water, land, guns, doubles and perhaps a blind is what I hear so far. The dog competition is designed to allow all levels to participate with a certain level of success with a few elements thrown in for the more advanced handlers and dogs.

Again, all are welcome and it is a great facility for your dogs. See you there.

Been a lot of fun in years pass. I might make it up for a minute before work. I'm saving all my vacation and bad employee behavior for the season

A good time for sure!! I met some new forum folks but it looks like I missed a few!! Good job to the DU crew for putting it on!
Gardiner Sportsman's Club was the perfect place for this event in my book. The Dog competition finally had a good water venue where the dogs could show their stuff.
When you get to be my age, it's always a race to see if you'll piss inside or outside of your waders!!
