    Default National Field Retrieve Association

    Anybody hear of it? Someone posted a link on another site and it goes to a page that doesn't exist and google can't seem to find it.

    NFRA, wasn't that the hybrid field trial/hunt test venue that surfaced 10 years ago and was talked about here extensively? They held a few events and then disappeared.

    That is kind of what I thought too, but I just don't recall exactly what it was

    I think it was centered up in the northeast somewhere. Was it moscowitz who was one of the promoters?

    i think it was more in the Oklahoma area. I guess I could do a search on here, but I seem to remember some of the OK area members being involved. I could be completely wrong.

    NFRA was headed up by Joseph McCann - Rockerin Retrievers.

    It was a fun program with a great concept. But in the end, there were already many organized retriever events, with schedules that were already in place.

    I attended a few of the events and judged. Others involved, and I'm sure to omit names were: Richard Cheatham, Joseph McCann, Patrick Johndrow, Uncle Bill Spitzer, Dan (Polock) Kotarski, Frank and Val Plewa, Richard Davis, Shayne Mehringer, Jay DuFour, Dana Giovanello, Don Cobb, Justin Tackett, Miriam Wade, Tim West, and the list goes on.....

    Corey, if you have more specific questions feel free to let me know and I may have an answer.

    Chris

    NFRA was a cool concept, but it has not been run in several years.

    Just saw a dog with titles from them and wondered what it was all about.

    Belle earned the MFR title (Master Field Retriever). She was the top ranked Female when the program ended. The tests were challenging, and a lot of fun.-Paul
    there's no good reason to fatten up a retriever.
