"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 this summer 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.
Both Hunt Tests 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.
Plans are now in full swing for the UIRC CKC Retriever Field Trial to be held at Swamp Dog Farm on Saturday, October 10th (Open), Sunday, October 11th (Junior & Qualifying) and
Monday, October 12th (Open).
A very exciting part of the weekend will be the raffle of a Zinger Winger! If you have ever wanted to own a winger, this is a great opportunity to own one. The winger will be raffled off at the UIRC Field Trial on Sunday, October 11th. Tickets will be sold online until October 5th and then sold in person at the trial on Saturday, October 10th and Sunday, October 11th.
All proceeds will go to the Upper Island Retriever Club.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE PRESENT TO WIN.
Online ticket sale deadline is Monday, October 5th. Raffle tickets can be purchased online at:
