The Kalamazoo Valley HRC will be holding a Fun Hunt on July 9, 2011 at the property in Jones, MI. (This is the same place our Preliminary Hunt was held for those who attended). Registration starts at 8am sharp, and the "tests" will begin as soon after 9am as humanly (and caninely) possible.

We will be using ducks, and will have a started/seasoned course set up in one location, and a seasoned/finished course in another. Our club members will be serving as "judges" to advise and assist if needed. We will have a modest prize for the dog/handler team that runs their registered course the fastest. Entry fees are $25.00 for the first dog, and $15.00 for each additional dog. Each handler may enter a total of 8 dogs.

The "premium" can be downloaded from our website: http://www.kvhrc.com/home.html

We ask that you sign up in advance to help us plan accordingly for the number of ducks we'll need, however, for an additional fee, we will accept walk-ups the day of the Fun Hunt. Pre-entries should be postmarked by July 1.

Also, with the small amount we are charging for the entries, lunch WILL NOT be provided and the nearest fast food is about 20 minutes away, so pack a cooler with your favorite sandwiches and soft drinks.

Feel free to PM me with any questions. Hope to see you there!

Oh, and since this is a Fun Hunt, the only way to pre-register is to print the premium from our website and send it in. It's not on Hunt Secretary, or Entry Express, etc....

Remember those prizes I mentioned for the dogs who run the fastest times?

I've got two of them done so far....take a look.

Ok, folks, last count shows we've got lots of room for people from other clubs to sign up for our Fun Hunt on July 9.

This is a great opportunity to scout the property for our Fall Hunt (http://www.retrievertraining.net/forums/showthread.php?t=71886) and you have a chance to win one of these cool lanyards hand tied by me (see above); they will also have one of our KVHRC Goose bands on them, so you can start your jewelry collection. :cool:

Hope to see you there!

Just a reminder, Friday is the entry deadline. We've got plenty of space left.

I just wanted to thank everyone who showed up. We had a good time. Some of us learned things (ok, I learned to trust my dog, who, when I let him, blew me away).

It was also good to see new faces, thanks again. See you in August!
