Got this yesterday. Bummer ;(

It is with great regret that I write this email to report to everybody that LSHRC has cancelled our spring hunt test in Bowie scheduled for March 21-22, 2009.

Due to drought conditions, low water, high fire danger, and poor cover conditions the landowner of our proposed hunt test site is not allowing us to use their property. Their decision is not without merit and we respect their choice.

We have tried the past few days to find another location for our hunt test. However, we have not had much luck and the clock is ticking. The Board of Directors has decided that it is best to cancel the test rather than try to throw something together without enough time to properly organize it. We pride ourselves on putting on a quality hunt test and donít wish to compromise that reputation.

Many people have volunteered to help and/or already volunteered a lot of time to organize our hunt test. For that, we are very grateful. Our thanks go out to everybody that have helped and/or offered to help. We appreciate it very much.

There are still plenty of openings at upcoming tests in and around our region. Below are some dates for a few of these tests. Here is a link to the HRC website where the premiums for these tests can be found (http://www.huntingretrieverclub.org/PREMIUMS/PREMIUM%20INDEX.htm ).

03/07/2009 - North East Texas HRC
03/28/2009 - Bryan College Station HRC
04/04/2009 - Three Rivers HRC
04/18/2009 - Texas Panhandle HRC

Again, many thanks to everybody for their hard work. I apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.
