Everyone,

Tidewater Retriever Club and Blue Ridge Retriever Club will be hosting the 2nd Annual VRB Benefit trial to be held August 24 -26, 2012.

Last year, we had a great turnout and had great results. We hope to do the same this year.

The trial will be held in PROVIDENCE FORGE, VA (just minutes off I-64, Close to I-95 and I-295), East of Richmond, VA.

We are still working on getting a great set of judges, but we hope you will come out and support our efforts towards in this trial. What a better was to spend a weekend than to campaign your Derby or Qualifying dog, and support a great 501 (c) 3 charity organization.


More details will come as we get closer.

Doug

This is just another bump to the top.

Again, this Double D/Q will be the weekend of August 24 - 26, and the event closes on August 15, 2012.

This location is easy access off I-64, close to I-64 / I - 95.

If you have a derby or Q dog, and you plan on attending this event, please enter early. Let's show everyone that this Derby will happen, and obviously, the more the merrier.

Thanks

Thank you for your support.

One more reminder about the Double DQ. The grounds are nice and the numbers reasonable. It should be a nice weekend.

TRC and BRRC would like to thank everyone who entered this trial. We had tremendous support with our numbers, and as such, we are working hard to make sure everything goes off smoothly.

Parker's will be the main check-in spot, and you will then be directed to the other locations of each stake each day.

In the event the running orders were such as it put your dogs close to the top in both stakes on the same day, please head to the stake which has the lowest number. We will fit you in when you arrive at the other stake.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE WILL ALSO BE SELLING VRB T-SHIRTS AND START A VRB RAFFLE to attempt to raise additional funds.

We appreciate your support of this event, and look forward to seeing you there.

Everyone, the results for both trials have been posted on Entry Express.

We would like to thank everyone who came out this past weekend to either run in the event, or watch. It was a great weekend. Who would have thought that the weather in late August in VA would have been low to mid 80's. Of course, we did have a slight 2 hour delay for a major storm that rolled through with lightening, but that did not stop us from having a good time, and watching some good dog work.

Without all of the entries, we could not have made this event a success. After I get all of the specifics completed from this trial, I will post more information regarding the raffle that was mentioned in an earlier thread. I have taken pictures of the ducks, and will post a copy of the ticket up so everyone can see the information.
