View Full Version : Missouri River 2009 Fall FT in limbo

05-08-2009, 12:14 PM
The Missouri River Retriever Club just learned that the Board of Directors of the Mid-Illinois Retriever Club will not grant MRRC permission to host a conflicting trial this September - thereby throwing the MRRC fall 2009 field trial into limbo for the time being.

MRRC is now looking at several options . . .
(1) move to Sep 11-13 - but that will conflict with the Mid-Iowa trial
(2) move to Sep 18-20 - but that will conflict with the Omaha, NE, trial
(3) move to Sep 25-27 - if there is not another conflicting trial, but the Whetstone Wildlife area is unavailable
(4) move to Oct 2-4 - Whetstone Wildlife area is unavailable

MRRC will be working over the weekend to come up with a new date for the trial - and possibly new trial grounds - and then contacting all the judges we already had lined out and see who would still be available for a new trail date and who would have to be replaced.

If things cannot be worked out, MRRC will cease to hold an AKC Field Trial.

We will keep you posted on developments.
