: Missouri River Retriever Club - Sept FT back on !!!

06-29-2009, 11:58 AM
the Missouri River Retriever Club can now announce that it will hold a 4-stake AKC Licensed Field Trial on September 25-27, 2009, at Williamsburg, MO

Maybe some times, some things work out for the better - even if it takes a little time and a lot of effort . . .

like . . .

1. finding a new trial date - good for us because it is later in September for weather and condition of the grounds but bad because another area club has decided not to hold field trials anymore and vacated this weekend

2. securing the field trial grounds by working with a bird dog club to share the wildlife area the same weekend - which should be in better shape later in the month due to most of hay mowing and crop harvesting being done by then

3. replacing a few of our original judges - not a real easy thing to do at this late date and we are thankful for the new ones we have secured

4. wading through the AKC process to make all these changes in dates and judges and then waiting for their approval - which we just got last Friday

Anyway . . . we got it done!

The information is up on Entry Express although the trial is not yet open for entries as we need to work out arrangements with the hotel yet and the manager is on vacation until next week.

So make plans to join us the end of September.
