The Midnight Sun Gun Dog Association is happy to announce that it will be putting on training classes starting Saturday November 15. These classes will last until spring of 2015. The classes are designed to be for the started and hunter level dogs, but all dogs at any level are welcome to attend. We are excited that Baron Rea from Wetland Retrievers will be leading this class.
Both classroom and field classes will be offered during this time. Costs are $100 for current MSGDA members and $125 for non members, which includes a MSGDA membership. Class locations and details will be emailed to those that are signed up prior to the November 15th start date. We hope you will consider this great opportunity for you and your dog to excel to the next level.
Results for July and August are up. Congratulations to all those who made the “Pass” List!
As hunting season rolls around and the testing season closes, the Midnight Sun Gun Dog Association would like to thank everyone for a great 2014 season. This was a very special year for MSGDA. We celebrated the clubs 25 year anniversary, held the NAHRA Invitational for the first time ever in Alaska, and at our final event, we were the first club to use the new NAHRA online entry service.
We are looking forward to 2015; we will have our 2015 event dates on our website soon. Our focus next year will be on the young gun dogs and their handlers. We are looking at options for special training days geared toward the started and hunter handlers and helping take them to the next level. We will of course have our annual banquet in spring, picnic fun day events, at least three NAHRA Field tests this coming year.
We also want to let you know that the club still has some chukar available. We need to empty our pen out before September 1. If you are interested in purchasing some chukar, please contact Kent Bull at 229-2951. Also, the board is always looking for help at our banquets, field events, or even as a board member. If you feel like you can help out in anyway, please contact us.
From the MSGDA board, we hope that you all have a safe and wonderful hunting season. Thanks again for all your support this year and we hope to see you all soon!
