I have been contacted by some people who asked for clarification about Mike's workshops this year:

There are two different places to apply.

As usual, I am coordinating the ones similar to what we have done for years and years.
You get there by going to www.totalretriever.com and look at the first headline that describes 2009 workshops. There are all the usual pages linked in the workshop section such as application forms, my email address, descriptions, etc. There is a Basic Transition in March in GA and an Advanced in June in WI.

Right under the first headline there is a box that links to the complete detailed description of the new clinic that with four instructors -- and Mike is one of the four. It is in February in Georgia and is designed for Advanced Field Trial participants. It will cover a variety of very useful topics that will assist and enhance in being competitive in Field Trials in USA and Canada. The place to contact and application forms are all linked as well as a contact email address.

Hope that helps :-)

Jeff is right --- I don't check here as often as many people.
Write me privately at mf96nfc@centurytel.net and I can help you.

There is a suggestion in the application page in the web site to send me an email when you drop the application in the mail. This gives me a readable email address for communication.
It also allows me to watch for the arrival.

I just arrived at the Georgia location and if something was sent to Wisconsin, it will be here in a couple of days as all my mail is forwarded once a week.

Happy Retrieving,
