    Raegan-

    Have you contacted Sue Dorscheid in Rosendale. She'll probably know some places you can train.

    As far the the ownership of the golf course, the county property records are a good place to start tracking that info if no one answers the phones. Here's a start...

    WRC HR Lennoxlove's Run with Wolves JH, WCX ("Cheyenne") ... still so fondly remembered
    HRCh Struan's Devil's in De Tails SH, WCX ("Lucy")
    SR CH Struan's Flight of Fancy JH ("Muse")
    Struan's Master of the Hunt JH, WC ("Charlie")
    Struan's Just Plain Perfect ("Jane")
    Struan's Driving Us Crazy ("Daisy") ... the baby in charge

    Hey, not a problem. Probably more Harrys than Hughs even in England.

    If you ever need help training out here, give me a call.
    My dog is south for the winter and I won't have him back until early May. I belong to Manitowoc County Kennel Club and train with a nice group of amateur trainers there. Works out really well to have a group to train with because you not only get to run your dog in nice setups but also get advice and can see how others handle their dogs. Their website is http://www.mc-kc.com/. Let me know if you need more information. A place that is closer to you most likely is the Wisconsin Amateur grounds just east of Horicon, http://waftc.org/. Getting involved in these types of groups will do wonders, trust me.

    1st mark down was a 2 iron dog leg to the left over the bunker, 2nd mark down is a 7 iron slice to left past cart path and the go bird was an in your face chip shot with a wedge with a slight hook that landed in the rough....

    Got to hate a breaking test...

    This needs to be stated again! These chemicals are serious and possibly can cause cancers in your dogs, especially if they drink or swim in the water.

    I had to opportunity to use a golf course recently and turned it down because of this. I found that the fertilizers can be quite caustic. And, this is California where the "greenies" won't let us use anything that might even be remotely dangerous to a gnat!

    town clerk office, public record map. some towns call it a tax map. Just ask, have the address. They know who owns the property. And they might even be a duck hunter or at least a dog owner. After you do this a while the town clerks in your area know you and will say who do you want to find today? Get to a point every field or marsh you drive past you think, can I train on that?

    snow drifts suck more than deep mucky muck!
