    Hope you have a good turnout, Howard, and wish I could be there!

    For those of you interested in hunt tests, but not sure what they are or what's involved, this is a GREAT opportunity to find out. I went to the first picnic trial (first retriever event of any kind & just to watch) on Mother's Day, 1989 in Fairbanks. Well-trained dogs to young pups, but super people.

    Time to get them doggies tuned up. These picnic test are always lots of fun.
    Wish I could be there.

    I think so Bud but truthfully I haven't paid attention. I'm pretty sure the AWRC needs a treasurer and a new president. But I don't know who they arm twisted to run.

    Please come.

    I've never had my pup in any hunt test so I may have to check it out. FSHSLYR- Just go north and veer to the right towards Palmer. You will see signs for the fair grounds on the right.

    N on Glenn
    Take the Palmer exit
    Alaska State Fairgrounds has a digital sign turn right at the sign
    The club should have a sign up as well
    proceed to the far side of a gravel lot
    the field is behind a row of trees
    You will see lots of cars parked along the treeline on the far side of the gravel lot

    I wish I could post a map but I'm not sure how.

    The field is at the Palmer Fair grounds. Go north out of Anchorage towards Wasilla and Palmer. At the Parks Hiway go right towards Palmer. About two miles on the Anchorage side of Palmer are the State Fairgrounds on the right side of the hiway. Turn into the fairgounds. Drive past the truck driver's training grounds. There will be a mowed hayfield straight ahead of you, that's it. Kind of like an extension to the fairgrounds parking lot. Matter of fact it is overflow parking for the state fair.

    I just wanted to say thanks to The Alaska Working Retriever Club (AWRC) for a very good event. I met a lot of nice people and Nitro had a blast. The hardest part was waiting for our turn. Nitro didn't understand why he heard gun shots and birds were falling and he couldn't go get every one.
    Thanks AWRC
