    Default 1st Annual RTF Training Jamboree!

    OK, this has been discussed many times.
    I have talked to the janitor and he approves.
    Therefore, I will try my best to make this happen.

    #1--We need some smart people that can plan events to help us.
    #2--WE need a location that can accomadate probably a dozen or so dogs to start.
    (hopefully more!)
    #3--We need ideas on the format.

    Here is what I have in mind.

    Central location, southern IN/IL or St Louis area.
    Saturday training, tailgate afterwards.
    Pot luck eliminates any cost or catering.
    Everybody brings something.

    Sunday morning training.

    Equipment;
    I have 3 SoG's but I am sure there could be enough if a few join in..

    I thought maybe we could do a typical club set up.
    Maybe 3 or 4 marks various distances.
    3 or 4 blinds various distances and complexity.

    Some fun competitions like a 5 bird scramble, fastest retrieve etc.
    Share your ideas on stuff to run.


    Every level of dog would be welcome!!!!

    If you could help, pm me please or post here.

    WE are going to make something happen.
    I am thinking mid-March to mid-April.

    BTW--me, Elvis and the Redhead will bring CC cookies!!!

    What do you think?
    Thanks,

    I can be bribed--CC cookies. The fluffs and rats like peanut butter cookies--they however cannot be bribed. I've tried.
