Hi Cindy,

I appreciate all of the hard work and effort the club is putting into making this derby a go. I have a derby dog that I would like to run. I lived in Clifton Park for a few years and would enjoy visiting the area again. It is a long drive for us from NC though. I will watch the entries and if you get close may take the plunge and make the drive!

Best of luck with it!

Thank you John!
I'm doing my best to keep us fresh in people's minds. Any bump to this thread helps.

I wish you guys the best. I really got deeply hooked in dog games when I lived in Rochester and then later in Queensbury/Lake George. I miss NY State quite a bit!

Good luck!

Is Dr. Jim Smith still running trials with you guys?

Dr. Jim has had great success at trials. He sadly is not a Member of BCRC at this time.

@ Chris, you should come visit.

Wish your club success in getting those Derby dogs ... very few trials in the NE/Mid-Atlantic from mid-June through July. Am sure that as more people find out about a new one on the schedule you will grow in time.

Major Props to the Black Creek Retriever Club on their debut trial. With a few dedicated individuals, this club put on a terrific trial on amazing grounds. The trial ran smoothly and it was obvious that all involved were pulling in the same direction.

Thank you Black Creek Crew, landowners, judges, and hardworkin’ guns and workers. Those grounds were readied up beautifully and everything ran well, as others have said. Dog/handler teams came up with some really nice work on astute tests; the weather even ranged from nice to glorious by Saturday evening’s final series. It was great to see newcomers in both stakes and to hear them nicely coached by the judges.
A special end-run salute to Doug Keefer for persevering through rain and serious traffic bottlenecks all the way from PA in time to run that tenth-starting young ‘un, KENYA. Phew!
Congratulations to all the handlers - Derby #1’s O/H Tara Yohan (KENNY), real nice job, and to Frank (DARLA), Thad (TUCKER), Tony (POKEY), Roy (CURRY) and Jane (GRACE), who all helped the dogs bring home Derby ribbons. Same goes for the Q. handlers, above.
What a great area for a trial, with beautiful big working farms, lots of history everywhere, friendly natives.
