I wanted to start off by saying thanks to all the club members, judges and Boy Scouts that helped to make our club hunt a huge success. We had a lot of first time members step up and help out. Thanks to you. We also had our core of senior members do their usual grand job with the hard work and also this year mentoring our new members. Thanks to those great people. That being said I am very proud to be the vice president of this fantastic club. Enough said. Back to business. We have our monthly meeting this Tuesday May 14, starting at six thirty at Wetzel State Recreation Area. Dress for the weather and be sure to bring a chair. Hope to see you there.

The Saint Clair Flats Hunting Retriever Club is hosting a two day hunt test at Wetzel State Recreation area.  The tests will start with 7:00am registration.  You can go to the HRC website for information. Registration is now open for the St Clair Flats HRC spring hunt test for May 11 – 12, 2019. Please use for registration. Reminder that walk up entries on the day of the test will be charged an extra $10.

The April club meeting will be Tuesday the 16th at the Chesterfield Cabela’s store starting PROMTLY at 6:30 pm. Please arrive ahead of time. as we have a guest speaker. Doctor Brooks, a veterinarian, will start off the meeting discussing First Aid for dogs. Dr. Brooks has graciously offered his time to inform and educate our members on caring for dogs. He is available to answer and discuss questions you may have regarding what to do in certain situations and other burning questions. Let’s have a good turn out for him. Following his presentation we will need to finalize our May hunt test. Additional items for discussion will be club training sessions and the purchase of a yearly club membership to use the training grounds at Crooked Foot Hunt Club. These club activities benefit all our club members, but also require some type of financing. Which bring up our primary fund raisers for the year. As voted on and approved by the membership there is currently a pheasant hunt raffle and future goose hunt raffle to help defray the costs of these and other club requirements. That being said we need our members to step up and either purchase or sell tickets. A few members have already sold tickets but we really need all our members help to make these a success.
