Ladies and gentlemen just a reminder that the annual meeting will be held at Cabela's January 8th,with the 11 AM Executive Council at 11 AM and the General Membership at 1 PM


Well ladies and gentlemen the training is over for the year and now the fun begins. As always hunt carefully and safely and productively. From all reports training this year was excellent. New things were tried and most worked well. Already plans are under way for next year. If you have ideas that would improve the training let any of the board members know or the training Co-Coordinators; Mark Blasko or George Nichols.


Training Documents: Below are documents available to assist members in preparing for our monthly training events. It is highly recommended that you review the documents in order to get the most benefit from training. The document is a list of Notes and Suggestions to help handlers prepare for training and how training is conducted. The Checklist is a list of items that handlers should try and bring with them for training days. The training committee asks all members to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to training on Saturday to help set up as well as distribute the training birds for the weekend.
