So I was just working at a hunt test this weekend and I was listening to people complain about not having enough help. I have listened to this for a lot of years and from all different clubs. I think the answer to this problem long term is getting newer people into the sport. I think we are failing the sport by not agressavly getting new people involved. Ask your self something what is the average age of the members in your club? Well do the math before you know it we won't have to many members In the club period. What about focusing on doing more youth days in clubs and at hunt test really cantering to the Junior hunt test folks. These are the new up and coming people . Make them feel welcome and get them involved . Give everyone a membership application at the start of day and even at ribon Delivery give them a member application. Also look at events where they are promoting hunting shows . Set up a booth to promote our sport. If we all work together I think it will start to be fun having new members in your club and become a mentor for someone or we will have a conversation in 20 years about how come there are no clubs left anymore. And let's face the facts without clubs you have no events ! Hunt test or field trial !
