    Absolutely if they need help I would love to go! I love working at tests cause you get the best seat in the house for watching dogs work and then you usually get a free lunch on top of it! I love to throw the live ducks, or run a winger station or plant a blind, I also like to see If I can get the next series set up before the judges are done with the call back list. I remember calling a hunt secretary an asking if I could come out and work at thier test and they were asking me "who are you?" and Why do you want to work??!?!! They had a hard time understanding why a person not runniing a dog would want to come out and work for a club they didn't even belong too haha. Then the first Field trial I went to go watch I talked them into letting me hang birds and run them out to the close stations.
    I even got an award at the 2010 Labrador Nationals because I worked every event they had. They made me take a lap around the ring when giving out awards.
    I have had judges like Kevin Burnell(sp?) tell me to slow down because it was hot and I was running to plant the blind and they thought it was too hot.

    The fix for burnout is to bring in new club members. A local club here was in a bit of trouble and running out of workers and they decided to change things, they started having training days and providing food at training days, they had their meeting on training days, they started offering classes, they were active in procuring memebers, soon they had 70+ members and they had so much help they ended up with 2 people at every station. They helped out other local clubs and recieved help in return. At training days they required everyone to run a station for a few dogs and they trained you how to run a station. They worked very hard for a few years and then the club had enough workers that it was very easy in the following years. The one problem they discovered was they needed to teach a few more people to be chairman or Sec or gun capt or head marshall, but that will go quickly. They are very proud of their tests and strive to put on the best tests in the country.

    JTS, just so we are clear, nobody owes anybody an explanation about anything. If you don't want people moaning and groaning about things, and you say you have a reason that if everyone knew it they would understand, why not give the reason? At that point, anybody left moaning and groaning is pretty much definitionally unreasonable, no?

We will find you a job and make this event happen. Kevin Polley 6606201163 or kkpolley@sbcglobal.net. For a list of board members reference the club website @ kcrc.net.

    Ken, you are sooooo bad

    Bubba, well, you are just Bubba. And that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Is frequently a humorous thing. And sometimes, well. This is supposed to be a family oriented board.
