    What a shame to lose such a nice place for dog work..

    Boy I loved judging on the grounds, this will be a real loss for both training and trials. My greatest memories are the stud bulls and those long runs of concrete fences.

    john,
    i thought all us dog folk wuz rich????? lol

    how about this idea:
    form a group called the asslrg(american society for the salvation of lost retriever grounds). the asslarge could produce a commercial like the aspca's. the commercial could show labs, chessies, goldens, fcr's, aws etc., all looking sadly at the camera from behind the "jail bars" of standing corn. sad background music could play while a recognizable movie star's voice told what tragedy it was for these dogs not to be able to run their marks in these tall crops and how for a $49 a month contribution from you, ten dogs would have property to run on for the rest of their lives!

    proforma financials;
    20,000 cntrbrtrs at $49/mnth for 12 mnths = $11.6mil
    less 640 acres at $3,000/acre = - 1.9mil
    less $20k prdctn and $2mil nat cbl med buy= - 2.2mil
    less compensation of me for my idea = - 2.0mil
    less ten years maintenance escrow = - 3.0mil
    less 20,000 asslrg t-shirts @$20 each = - 0.4mil
    ----------
    funds avail for future media buy and admin 2.1mil

    Yes same here! No money. IMO key ingredient. Too bad It is a lovely piece of property. I have trained and shown there. Great experience. Many owners of the property in the retriever world-not sure how that would settle out!! JMO

    I know your joking but in all seriousness ,you need to look at it as a tax write off......hence sub chapter s.......Its a problem with clubs nationwide........
    The right people could make it work ....Lets face it folks,the days of Larken,Stroud,Belmont,Murnaine are gone. That property coul be a comercial preserve from oct through march.....some land leased for crops .....and other for field trial venues.....Theres a good manager there as far as Jim.....it would work.

    I agree that somebody could probably make something work there. If that someone has enough money to buy it, it wouldn't really have to work...

    Reality is that if someone could afford it they'd probably buy the equivalent property in the south.
