The LRC (a Master National Club) will hold its AKC Hunting Retriever Test at
the beautiful David Didier farm in Mooreland, GA. For the first time at a
National LRC Hunt test, there will be a double Junior stake and a double
Senior stake. In other words, handlers will have the potential to earn 2
legs towards either the Junior title or the Senior title; running both
Saturday and Sunday. The Master Test will be divided according to AKC rules
regarding the number of dogs being run and will start Saturday and finish on
Sunday. Judges are pending AKC approval.

The grounds are very picturesque and well suited for a hunt test. There will
be an opportunity for handlers to buy lunch on the grounds if they choose.
In addition, a free dinner will be served on a hill overlooking the ponds on
Saturday night. There also will be a raffle held that night with proceeds
going to Lab Rescue. There are three motels near the test grounds if
handlers wish to stay there, and the Howard Johnson does accept dogs. Entries
will be made through Entry Express. It is very exciting to see the eagerness
and willingness of so many individuals from numerous states volunteering in
various roles. Of course, as in any hunt test, volunteers are needed and
never turned away. My co-chair, Joyce Woods and I are very excited about
this event. Anne Evans, Co-chair of the National HRT.

COME ONE, COME ALL!! This is a friendly reminder that the LRC National Hunt
Test has a closing date of September 10th. If you have HT friends who would LOVE to earn 2 titles on their Junior or Senior entries, or other folks who may wish to enter, please let them know to go to Entry Express and do a quick and easy entry. No overnight entry
rushes, etc. For most folks who mainly run hunt tests, this is rather
unique for them, for most hunt tests don't close this early. The tests will be held October 11-12. So, please help us 'round up them doggies!' Have a great day and the BIG DATE is fast approaching.

Let's just hope Hanna gets out of the way in a hurry!! BTW, I
have judged in a hunt test down east when a hurricane was just around the
corner. It blew the tent down and we had A LOT of fun. Did make things run
smoothly and FAST!! Anne

It was a huge success and I would like to thank any RTF-ers who attended.

from one of the tests chairs:
We were able to pull off, for the first time recorded, the largest entry of an LRC National Specialty hunt test as well as a first time for a double Junior and Senior. With economic crunches as well as the high price of gas, the double was a huge hit at the Junior and Senior levels. There were 296 entries, minus several scratches, all together. It truly was awesome to be involved in such a huge event.
