I don't usually do this, perhaps that is a fault I need to think about, but this weekend I ran perhaps the most enjoyable HT i've ran in years. Ron and the club put on what appeared from this participants perspective a flawless event. The help was great, all 3 levels ran without a hitch, not once during the whole weekend did I hear a complaint from anyone on anything. While my Senior dogs took a beating my Master dogs rock and rolled on some solid, tough, straight up master tests. Hats off to Jim/Phil for 3 master level series and I especially appreciated the judging style pertaining to dog safety. I've missed having an early March HT for the past few years and its great to see the club rebound and do such a nice job, even though most of the available grounds was flooded out. I know the club members are exhausted tonight, and perhaps wonder if it was all worth it. Trust me, it was. Thank you...

Thanks very much! And yes, at the end of a weekend test, the burnout factor is definitely there; but feedback and comments like this do help recharge the batteries. It is always nice to know that everyone's efforts (and it takes a good team of folks) are appreciated.

Thanks for coming up to our test and bringing your crew along. See you at our Fall test (September at Zellner's), or before that in Medford or Roseburg.

I second Pauls comments about this club. They always put on well managed and well executed events, whether it be a hunt test or picnic trial. Great group of people!
