    Default Possible Golden (Specialty) Field Trial in the Fall

    Hey folks we are trying to organize a field trial for goldens only to replace the one scheduled for the Golden National. This is not sanctioned as a National event but will be a licensed AKC field trial if it goes. Plans are to be in October (27-29) in Sedalia, Missouri at Bob Hayden's world class grounds, Wood Dale Farms. We have not received final approval from GRCA but we took a straw poll on FB and we wanted to expand our contact area. If you responded on FB don't respond here. Can you tell me if you would attend (not being held to contract) and what stakes and how many dogs you would enter.
    Thanks

    I would make every effort to attend and enter one dog in the open and am. I would also be happy to help wherever I can.

    I'm in. I'll have at least two dogs and 4 entries; possibly three dogs and 6 entries.

    Who's judging?

    As a dog lover I always wanted to keep a Golden Retriever. I absolutely love Labradors and Golden Retrievers are just majestic! Unfortunately, the only problem I have is lack of time. I have multiple jobs where at one hand I provide essay writing help via Genuine Essay and on the other hand I also give online tuitions. So I'm always left very little, if not, no time for myself at all, let alone, have time for a pet. I would love to keep them one day!

    So would points go towards a FC/AFC title since it would be limited to only one breed?
