    The event traditionally held in November is the National Retriever Championship

    The event traditionally held in June is the National Amateur Retriever Championship.

    One is limited to amateurs, the other is not.

    Not sure why the term "National Open" is needed.

    Now you are talking titles. Before you were talking events.

    National Retriever Club sponsors the National Retriever Championship and the winner becomes that year's National Field Champion (NFC). The same is true for amateur and you add the Amateur after National. HPW

    So, to put it all together:

    NFC = National Field Champion
    NAFC = National Amateur Field Champion
    FC = Field Champion
    AFC = Amateur Field Champion

    NRC or National Retriever Championship, or just National, is open to Pros and amatuers
    NARC or National Amatuer Retriever Championship, or National Amatuer, is open to amatuers only

    The winner of the National gets the title of NFC.

    The winner of the National Amatuer gets the title of NAFC

    I was thinking there was a national open and then the National Retreiver championship. So the NRC is the national open, Right?

    will that be considered the sixth and seventh series, or just one series ?


    if it is a land and water blind, would they have the option of which one you want to tackle first ?

    and if so, which one would you choose to run first ? Why

    Dang, Pirate was dropped. Looks like he didn't have a very good 5th series. Jim Gonia and the dogs he was running, Ford and NFC Emmitt were dropped also. The 5th was a tough series as they cut a bunch of dogs, about 40% from the previous series.

    Dr. Eds dog (Holland) is still hanging tough.

    A lot of good dogs dropped. Some without a handle. Which goes to show that not all handles are equal, especially compared to a big hunt.Still some local flavor in there.Pappa Merlyn still there. Pink sister to daddy Juice still there.
