    Default 2013 National Amateur Retriever Championship Coverage

    This year’s National Amateur will be held in Mondovi, Wisconsin from June 16 - June 22. The National Amateur Retriever Club and Retriever News are pleased to bring this blog to you each day. Some reporting will take place before the event begins as we will arrive a few days early a to attend meetings, etc. The Retriever News will again provide up to the minute coverage through www.TheRetrieverNews.com Here is the link to the blog: http://2013narcblog.theretrievernews.com/

    This year’s Team will consist of Tina Styan, Tera Lanczak and Gwen Jones. We encourage the followers of the blog, both at the event and online around the country to participate by adding their own comments to the posts and sending us materials or suggestions of what they would like to see. Photos and suggestions can be sent directly to TStyan@TheRetrieverNews.com

    A couple of additional comments…the rolling terrain of the test sites may impact the speed at which we post the blog online. We have set some plans in motion to alleviate that as much as possible, but we would ask that you bear with us, knowing these logistics are sometimes out of out control. We expect more followers than ever to be on location and the internet usage of smart phones and tablets also affects our upload speed. This year, 2013 NARC Gear will only be available online, so if you want to check out the NARC store, it is at www.RetrieverOutfitter.com

    Here is a link to the test sites so you can get an impression of the lay of the land: http://www.theretrievernews.com/RNew...SITES_2013.pdf

    Please know that your volunteer reporters work to bring you bird-by-bird reports. We have specific directives to report only the trial logistics, the weather and the very general issues involving performance where it is non-judgmental. In no instance will the reporters be critical of any dog or handler performance. We support the judges as only they hold "the book" as they assess the cumulative work of each dog -- so please do not expect to hear gallery talk or specific analysis relating to performance.

    Thank you and enjoy the coverage of the 2013 National Amateur Retriever Championship.

    Great pics - looks like a beautiful place - loved the lineup of trucks- pretty intimidating to think that's just a pre-national training group!! Thanks for the reports and thanks to Lainee as always for her summary!

    Congratulations to Arnie Erwin on being selected as the 2014 NARC President

    Next year's National Amateur will be held in Roseburg Oregon, a beautiful venue

    the judges will be Steve O'Connell (Eastern Time Zone ) Dennis Bath (Central ) and John Pampy (Mountain)..Congratulations gentlemen on your assignment

    looks like there will be a change in The RAC (Retriever Advisory Committee) with the retirements of Nelson Sills, Robert Kennon Jr, and Bill Daley...Thank you gentlemen for all that you have given to the retriever game for the last couple of decades

    the criteria for how RAC members are selected are as follows

    1. They should be a 40+ point judge
    2. They should have 20+ years of Field Trial Experience
    3. They must have titled a dog
    4. They must currently be an active handler

    They will also initiate term limits of eight years..

    #38 Jerry Lee, and # 39 Nike both handled

    is #40 Ali's quick whistle to the bird considered a handle?
