Where does the money go to? Is there a premium?

After giving the goods on Susan's questions, how about: Is this event "super singles" again or an actual sanctioned or unsanctioned field trial this year with four stakes?

The money raised about $2,200 ( Mike Griffith/Treasurer can be contacted through our website) has not been distributed for anything as of yet, other than the State Corporation and Website Fees. We have held two events that were attended by Directors from the Department of Conservation and Recreation, and our efforts resulted in Training Grounds being Approved in Phase I of the Powhatan Park. Our main focus is to bring awareness of the need for permanant Training/Testing/ Trialing Grounds to the State. This year the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries will be attending and our efforts will be to get them(DGIF) on Board. We have came a long way in Two Years and have thru our Volunteered efforts aquired the use of Epps Island for Clubs to Rotate each October the use of , for events.
This will not be a Super Singles event, and there is no premium. If you are interested Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a copy of the Stake rules and a Map. If you have any other questions I may be contacted by Phone at (804)512-9254 :D
