When those guys are running the test, getting judges, grounds, help, birds, lunches and doing all that goes into making a hunt test go, they can order title ribbons. In the mean time you thank the people who put the test on for giving their time and effort.There were several unhappy people at the Junior on Sunday and probably Saturday

i was trying to be respectful and ask if there was a reason for not doing it. it is pretty rude that a tulsa retriever club member would give a reply like this. i guess the other people i heard discussing not running your event again may have another reason to consider also.Tulsa Slim said:Whaaaaa they didnt pass out title ribbons whaaaa I dont believe there was anything in the premium about title ribbons. The AKC will send you a paper tilte in the mail for your great accomplishment. Until then quit whinning you havent run enough events to even have an oppinion.
Title ribbons are something that just came out in the last 3 - 4 years AFAIK. Honest, I've never felt that any orange ribbon I've earned with my dogs was ugly. I don't think my dogs have ever cared if I got a ribbon or not. They just wanted more birds, preferably flyers.How dare you guys that has been in this game for so long you want to condemn someone for wanting a title ribbon.
It's no disgrace to me. None of our local clubs give out title ribbons. I wouldn't even know what they were except someone told me about them. It seems to me that any ribbon at the end of the test is an accomplishment.So the clubs that take your entry fee and can't even acknowledge your dog for a job well done is a disgrace. This is the first one I know of that doesn't give out title ribbons.
