Airing your dogs

Dog owners and handlers.

 Please be aware that though we are having the trial in a national forest, there are many areas of private ground interspersed with the public lands.  These parcels are rarely marked with “No Trespassing” signs.  It is archery season and there may be hunters on these private lands.

The Training Grounds are available for airing your dogs during the entire trial. 

Do not air your dogs anywhere but these grounds.

Training with gunfire and birds is not allowed after the training day (Sunday 10:00 – 2:00).

Thank you in advance for cooperation.

Buy a Flag, Sponsor a Series, Sponsor a Cart, Plan on Donating to the Silent Auction or help wilth Fund Raising.
The flags will be out in the field, just like the staked flags.  The cost is only $25. 
Because of the time involved in making each of these flags, we need to get payment and what you want put on the flag (30 spaces maximum) by October 10th

Maybe it's your name, a dog's name, your kennel, a club, a friend, etc.................... 

This was a big hit last year.  At the end of the NAC you will be able to take your flag with you. 
If you are not there at the end we will find a way to get the flag to you (maybe not the stake, depending on how we have to get the flag to you). 
Click here for the flag Sponsorship Form (fillable MS document) PDF Format to complete for your flags to send to Bill Pierson.
