    If your club were to host a NAHRA event, would you run to try it out?

    Those were the first "hunt" tests we ever ran like 25 years ago.
    We'd be glad to give them another go. Some of the guys on here (RTF) were there back then also.
    Weren't you guys?

    They don't have to be steady to flush in IL...that's a kick to flush state.

    Spag, just curious; to what standard in particular are you referring? And even more curious to me, in regard to breeding, your dog's dam is a NAHRA dog, so how does that fit in with your statement? Sadly, I'm the product of a public school education and perhaps I'm missing your point; if you could expand your thought process a little i'd appreciate it.

    Larry, I think Jim is being sarcastic. Both sire and dam were GMHRs (Tuck & Molly) and he's just poking fun.
