SPBC 2014 Fall Training Trial Sunday October 26th


Sunday, October 26th at the Clubhouse 7am to 5pm

The 2014 Fall Training Trial will be held on Sunday 10/26/2014. We will be following the “Team Hunt” format used last year. You will work in a team consisting of 2 handlers and 2 dogs. Choose your team or draw names from a hat. The “team” hunt is a chance to work your dog without all the rules of a hunt test. If you don’t shoot, don’t let that stop you from entering, as we will have volunteers who will be glad to be your gunner. Prizes will be awarded.

**Puppy Fun  This year we will also be running a puppy event, just for the “FUN” of it. Pups, not yet trained for gunfire will have the opportunity to run, play and find a bird or two. Price $20.00. Older dogs interested in a introduction to birds are welcome. This includes dogs not acquainted with gunfire.   **Buy, Sell Trade Fun  Loaded with “Stuff”? 4 crates and only 1 dog, 10 guns and only 1 closet…Set up a table and buy, sell or trade it away.   **Trap Shoot:  We will hold a trap shoot just to add a little more fun. $10 for 10 shots, bring your own shells. 6 singles, 2 report doubles so you can keep your open chokes. Ties determined by doubles, so bring extra shells. Calcutta available.   Rules for Team Hunt: • Each team will have 20 minutes to harvest a limit of 5 birds. • All birds must be shot off a point. • Dogs may be entered multiple times but can only be braced with the same dog once. • All training devices will be allowed. • Scoring will be number of birds bagged (maximum 5) with the fewest shots. Time will be used as a tiebreaker. • The team limit is 5 birds. Any additional birds killed or wounded will count as –1. • All laws and preserve regulations will be observed and everyone is required to wear blaze orange. Please no bitches in season.
