Out hunt test is being moved to a spot between Boone and Madrid Ia. just west of Ames due to the excess water at Chichaqua and the threat of the levy breaking. We are working on maps as we speak, but I wanted to get the word out as quickly as possible. We will have the posting on www.retrievertraining.net. All handlers will be contacted by the e-mail address they used to enter.
If you have any questions, call me on my cell. 319-360-1783.
Thanks for your patience as we work out the details of making sure this test happens.

As you may have heard Iowa has experienced severe flooding over the past several weeks. The Mid Iowa Retriever Club has had to move the location of their 2008 FT/HT to be held on June 13th, 14th, and 15th 2008 to alternate grounds.



We are NOT cancelling ANY of the events.



The Owner/Handler Qual Field Trial is being held at Chuck Schweikert’s place near Boone, Iowa. Here’s the address and a map to Chuck’s place:

1103 233rd St

Boone, IA 50036

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=&saddr=1103+233rd+Street,+Boone,+IA++50036&daddr=&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=60.764775,112.148438&ie=UTF8&ll=41.878764,-93.777924&spn=0.453988,0.87616&z=11

(You might need to scroll the map so you can see the bubble off to the northwest that marks the site if you use this link)



For the Qual:

Suggested directions from I-35 since Hwy 30 is closed in Boone:

Take Hwy 210 (I-35 exit 102) west about 13 miles to Madrid.

In Madrid take Hwy 17 north about 6 miles to E57 (aka 270th St) in Luther.

Take E57 west about 7 miles to R18 (aka L Ave).

Take R18 north 3.5 miles to 233rd St.

Turn east on 233rd St and you’ll be at the site.



The Hunt Tests (JH/MH on Saturday, JH/SH on Sunday) are being held nearby the Qual FT grounds at Marten’s Game Farm also near Boone, Iowa. Here’s the address and a map to Marten’s Game Farm:

1530 280th St

Madrid, IA 50156

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=&saddr=1530+280th+st.+Madrid,+IA+50516+&daddr=&sll=41.878764,-93.777924&sspn=0.453988,0.87616&ie=UTF8&ll=41.888477,-93.762131&spn=0.453919,0.87616&z=11



Suggested directions from I-35 since Hwy 30 is closed in Boone:

Take Hwy 210 (I-35 exit 102) west about 13 miles to Madrid.

In Madrid take Hwy 17 north about 6 miles to E57 (aka 270th St) in Luther.

Take E57 west about 2.5 miles to Peach Ave.

Take Peach Ave south for 1 mile.

Turn east on 280th St to the site.



Beware that there are many other roads, highways and interstates in Iowa that are closed that may affect travel times.



Both locations are approximately 30 miles northwest of Chicaqua. Plan on the drive taking about an hour from Chicaqua to the alternate grounds.

We still plan to start all events at 8am on their respective days. We understand that some folks will be arriving late due to the change in venue and we’ll make a reasonable effort to accommodate those folks.



We will have some maps posted at Chicaqua to assist anybody not receiving this information. But if you know other folks that are attending it would be appreciated if you would pass the word along as I know not everybody will get this email.



Cell phone numbers of MIRC members:

Jim Meyer 515-554-7435

Craig Arians 319-360-1783

Tony Despenas 515-249-2192



If you would please reply to me (just me, do not “reply to all”) that you received this information I would greatly appreciate it as it will help us ensure that everybody gets the word about this venue change.



We appreciate your understanding the extenuating circumstances that made use relocate.



Thanks,



Jim Meyer
