The Alaska Working Retriever Club Welcomes You...

http://www.totalretriever.com/alaska/images/awrc_logo.jpgThe Alaska Working Retriever Club is pleased to announce that we’re hosting an advanced/late transition retriever workshop with Mike Lardy and Dennis Voigt this July in the scenic Matanuska Valley near Anchorage. Ten to twelve handler-dog teams will be guided through various sessions as we explore the principles, practices, and problems of training retrievers from late transition training through all-age competition.

Enjoy the scenery and experience what Alaska has to offer, and learn from the best, Mike Lardy and Dennis Voigt- Definitely a retriever package of a lifetime!

Go to http://www.totalretriever.com/ for the detailed information and application!

And check this out! The week after the seminar handlers can enter a field trial in Fairbanks!

What's the best way to commute to the Wasilla lodging? Rental? Shuttles?

Rental will be the best way. I'm not sure what fields we'll be using for the seminar as we don't know yet what the summer growing season will be like. Water will be a good 20-25 minutes from Wasilla.

I can't tell you who has the club hats right now. But, they do have the logo. Don't buy a black hat as the logo kind of disappears.

So I thought, now that would be a real adventure - then I mapquested driving directions to Wasilla - 4475.31 miles - a mere 77 hour trip - ugh!

Anybody care to charter a plane?

Yup, that would ruin a two week vacation. 6 days driving up and 6 days driving back. Two days vacation. ;)

But no need to charter, we are civilized enough to have scheduled jets in and out of the airport every day.

LOL - yes, I even checked prices out at about $600 round trip without the dog fee, but that's a long day for the dog to spend in cargo.

Yup, Alaska Airlines goes to Regan International, but they stop in Seattle on the way. 11 hours in the jet last time I checked. One long trip for man and beast. But the last time I checked Alaska Airlines checked baggage dog fair was only $100 everywhere they flew.

To go through all that trouble you'd really want to do an Alaskan Vacation. You could go to the Lardy seminar July 8-11, see the sights in Alaska for a week and do the Fairbanks field trial the following weekend July 16-18.

Heck, if you wanted to stay longer there's an AKC hunt test the week after the Fairbanks trial and another AKC field trial the week after that.

Remember, Alaska trials are very very small so you guys come up here and get those cheap points. :twisted:
