Welcome to the Alaska Working Retriever Club

and the

Retriever Club of Alaska!

TRAINING, EDUCATION, FIELD TRIALS, and HUNT TESTS
for the working retriever
since 1987



August 14, 2017


Dear Fellow Retriever Enthusiasts,

Summer is winding down and our final Hunt Test is upon us.  After the final test comes the reward. Thanks to the many hours and resources you have dedicated to training and tests, you will be a shining example of the value of a trained retriever in the field.  Ducks, geese, cranes, ruffed grouse, spruce hens and more are about to become more important than colored ribbons.  Remember,  this is what your dog was born for and the craving of their genes can only be satisfied if you get out there.  Good luck and be safe!

The Board will continue to work through the details of making the 2018 season of trials and tests a reality.  We are counting on your help to make the next season better than the last.  We will also plan for a Banquet to celebrate our membership and our mission to be held February 18th, 2018.  The details still need to be worked out.  More to follow, but mark your calendars.

Speaking of the Banquet/Annual Meeting, we will draw for this year’s raffle at the meeting.  The winner will get their choice of a day fishing trip for 4 out of Seward or a Spring Snow Goose hunt for 2 over 1000 to 2000 decoys in lay out blinds between mid-February and mid-March out of Mount City, Missouri.  This raffle is available through the generous donation of member Mark Habermann, who will be your host on your choice of a fishing trip or a hunt.  Please contact a Board Member to get tickets.  

 

We will be also planning for educational demonstrations and general outreach to the public on the value of a trained retriever and helping all those who are interested in training their retrievers. LuAnn Pleasant of Red Rover Retrievers will be here offering a 2-day seminar on the topic of raising a field trial puppy/early training.  Mark your calendars for October 21 and 22, 2017.  Details to follow very soon. 

For those that have ideas and want to improve the experience of the sporting dog community, we have opportunities.  Board seats are available and many improvements to the program can be made if someone wants to volunteer to help.  If interested either call me or send a message through the web site or the email addresses of our Board. 

Enjoy the season of hunting with your best friend and show off that excellent training!

Sincerely, 

Mike Black

President
