    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,
    You do realize that there is an expectation of lots of pictures - of the participants both canine (with their bio) & human, the tests & who set them up with a little bit of what they would expect to accomplish, a description of how the the dogs did as a group - no singling out of any dog, this is a training day - Oh & did I say lots of pictures . & a picture of the hamburgers & the burger joint, they sound scrumptious. Little town hamburger joints can sometimes be jewels in the rough . Most of all I envy you guys, it's just a little far to drive for a single puprose. Year after next may have a couple of grandkids in college back there so it could be a dual purpose trip.

    Maybe someone could make the report a slinky -

    A Sticky stays around too long, so a Slinky would eventually move down the ladder .

    I am just bumping it for now to keep it live.
    I will let it go away once we are finalized and dialed in.
