    A couple of people have messaged me and asked why I chose who I did for the RHOF. I readily admit both dogs submitted were before my time in this game but I have always had this view of the Hall and cannot understand why things are the way they are.

    IMHO when a dog wins a National Stake that should be an automatic qualifier for induction, secondly when a dog is inducted into the RHOF, the owner/ handler should be inducted also, after we play this game as a team. Third and although subjective, the accomplishments of the dog or the individual should speak for themselves, their personality or popularity (or lack of it ) should have little bearing on induction into the RHOF...I would also like to see some transparency in the voting, both in who the voters are and how many votes were received by each nominee, who people voted for should be kept secret just like our own political process

    that being said I can qualify my two person picks in this manner

    1. Joe Schomer- trained and handled 2X NFC Spirit Lake Duke along with titling 15 other dogs while at Macopin Kennels and many others after leaving there including '72 NFC Royal Moose's Moe and FC Remhocs Lejo Juderi which is where I first met Mr Schomer

    2. Lanse Brown - the number 1254 and counting ( All Age pts acquired)

    THREE DOGS in the RHOF
    - all females, 80 qualifications for the Nationals, 12 Finalists, Lanse has qualified,run, and finished more Nationals than any other amateur in the sport. Lanse has also been a National Amateur judge

    I could go on about Lanse but he is an eccentric, sometimes loud, sometimes controversial...but he is also one straight shooter and one heck of a dog person and a friend to retriever enthusiasts from coast to coast

    FC AFC Hawkeye's Dandy was the third dog on my short list, after I read a post from Jordan Talley about that fine animal, a great choice too..

    Bon, I Couldn't agree with you more re Lanse Brown. I had the priviledge of spending time with Lanse at his gracious invitation this Winter. He is definitely a maverick and an eccentric person. Without question his number 1 priority is the dogs. His knowledge and concern for the dogs and dog games is top rate. What that man knows about bird placement and test design should be distilled into a beverage and shared with everyone judging FT's today
    I thouroughly enjoyed every second with him and state unequivically that our sport is much the better for his presence. He could care less about being inducted into the HOF, and I think that also speaks positively for his inclusion in same.

    I also think that Mary Howley belongs in the HOF

    How does the admission process work?

    Is the person and/or dogs garnering the most votes for nomination necessarily even considered by those with the final say.

    No, you say ? Then what does your vote mean ?

    Thank you everyone who are voting for FC-NAFC Rebel Chief of Heber.

    The dog only ran FTs for six years (and only about ten trials a year), and was always amateur-owner handled, never by a professional. Yet he accumulated 173 AA points, 22 AA wins, and won two double-headers. He qualified for five consecutive NatOpens and was a finalist twice. He qualified for six consecutive NatAms and won in 1965.

    This was a San Jose, California dog. One wonders where are all the California FTers in support of him? Time to stand up and be heard.

    thats the 64 million dollar question, I highlighted the criteria as it appears on my ballot but it get pretty secretive after the first round, but based on what is printed it looks like Dr Aycock has a vote since he was a past president...do you have a vote John ? I dont want to see who voted for whom but I would like to see how many total votes were tabulated and who received how many.....



    I would throw three other names out there that deserves serious consideration for the RHOF.....Ray Goodrich , and the late Anthony "Tony " Snow, and Leonard Ferrucci
