    YWHRC based in Ct. holds both HRC and AKC hunt tests. They've also agreed to hold a NAHRA test again this year.

    Rappahannock River RC in VA has held all 3; it started as a NAHRA club, then we became an AKC club. We only held one HRC hunt--we all had a great time but we lost quite a bit of money. HRC is not widespread in our area, we haven't ruled out doing one again but everyone's taking a breather after hosting the MN in 2007! We also hosted an event jointly with Blue Ridge, we were one of the first clubs to have an O/H Q with a hunt test. Blue Ridge put on the Q, we ran the HT.

    Have any of your clubs encountered any "flack" from any one venue about it's involvement with the other ?

    Treasure Coast RC/Treasure Coast HRC, has been running AKC and HRC forever (20 some years and I think both all that time, but one was probably first and the other added on, but still a long time) , no problems

    Is the club you are a member of pondering adding another venue of testing? Or are ya just stirring it up?
