"Dedicated to promoting the training of retrievers as hunting companions and field competitors, as well as to the education of handlers and trainers."
In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Upper Island Retriever Club has been thankful to be able to have hold two hunt tests and one field trial this summer and early fall at Swamp Dog Farm. A huge thank you to Barb Loree and Kathy Miner for allowing us to use their property during these challenging times.
All the events were very successful both in success/fun with dogs and with cooperation by all involved in following the COVID-19 guidelines put forth by the Upper Island Retreiver Club and Swamp Dog Farm.
Planning for 2021 is underway - please stay tuned for more information.
Thank you to Kim Chester for her great job on the newsletter! Please take a look.
Our apologies for the accidental omission of two dogs and handlers that titled this summer:
Cider & Sylvia Lawson - Senior Hunter
Case & Bill Pearson - Master Hunter
