Get your hunt on at the 2016 SCOA National Specialty!
It’s time to sign up for our AKC & NAVHDA hunt tests! The AKC tests will be held on May 14th & 15th and
NAVHDA on May 16th at Carlson’s Canine Country Club in Fall City, WA. This year we are offering an added attraction as our AKC tests will both be mentored events for new people to come out and learn about testing. In addition after we head back to Everett there will be a “Meet-A-Bird” workshop at the host hotel on May 17th where you can have your puppy learn about the best thing in the world.
Premiums and entry forms are now available, if you need copies or any other test information please contact the test secretaries below:
AKC: Alyssa Pease - firstname.lastname@example.org
NAVDHA: Penny Masar - email@example.com
AKC Hunt Test Mentored Event Details:
SCOA member and AKC Hunt Test judge Liz Bodell will walk out in the field with the gallery to observe, explain and offer guidance to anyone who is interested in learning about testing their dog. We welcome everyone to come and learn the dos and don’ts as well as what the judges are looking for in your dog’s performance in all areas to get you on track for future testing opportunities. Walk-ins are welcome but we will be able to plan better if we know approximately how many people are planning to participate, please contact Alyssa Pease at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up ahead of time.
If you would like to volunteer for either ACK hunt test or for NAVDHA hunt test please contact Candice Sobota at CandiceSobota@comcast.net. Any and all help would be appreciated.
A Hunt Test Dinner will be held on Sunday, May 14th at 5:30pm for judges, participants and anyone else who would like to join in at The Raging River Café & Club in Fall City just a few minutes away from the test grounds. Please RSVP by May 8th to Candice Sobota at CandiceSobota@comcast.net.
