    Usually before someone gets sponsored they need a performance record that is looked up to. All though the T-ball I watched yesterday had sponsors. They also did not keep score. HPW

    It seems to me that the best thing for the city and the sport would not be to sponsor an individual but sponsor a trial in the area or work to attract the MN or the NFC or something. The bang for the buck in terms of hotel tax, people spending $ in the area would be better. Huntsville, AL visitors bureau seems to get a fair amount of mileage from doing SRS stuff, although that is televised

    Dear Jay: Recently as I was looking for my callbacks Sat pm I discovered a group of people who have very strong opinions regarding having the city of Little Rock sponsor their dog. After reading 6 pages of --- would you, as the Head of the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce and as the owner of a currently running FC/AFC Ride Sally Ride, inform these people what your city's policy is. The majority of the RTF people have never been to or run a licensed field trial and thus they are unaware of procedures and the people who do. Strange that your dog and your passion are unknown within the city government. SEE YOU A__ I told you that just because you win an Open and Qualify for Nationals you are still a "NOBODY".

    I am laughing so hard it hurts. . . . BAAADDDD! Another perfect example of how people on the internet think they are invisible and toss out all kinds of opinions. While the people that ARE somebody or are INVOLVED in something, remain anonymous. I do hope the OP has not run afoul of his employers.

    Lanse laid out the perfect opportunity. Call and get the Chamber to sponsor you instead of the city.

    I have seen a truck that parks around the chamber with a 2 or 3 hole dog box and often wondered I wish I knew who that was so we could train. Now I know.

    Is this a letter u sent to him? Now I am afraid my ignorance on the procedures and trials may lead to what 2tall mentioned in his comment?
