Since I have had several private inquiries, I am posting the following information. The Alamo Retriever Club has applied to AKC to host a trial on their traditional spring date. Despite the fact that ARC has not hosted a trial for several years, AKC has informed us we are still "licensed" to do so, but we are awaiting formal approval of our application. The dates will be March 3-5, 2006 and the location will be near Hondo, about an hour west of San Antonio TX. As soon as AKC approves the application and the judging panel is finalized, the premium information will be posted at Entry Express.
