Message from the Director

Western Regional Members,
Well, the holiday season has begun. Thanksgiving is over, hunting season is in full swing for most of our members and the testing has concluded for the year.  To those of you who participated in the WR tests this year we thank you and hope that your experience was both pleasurable and successful.  Every effort was made to ensure both.
This time of year is busy for the Western Region Board of Directors.  Dates for the 2019 Test Schedule need to be submitted by mid-December.  Be sure to submit your testing needs for need year.
Nominations for Position #2 and Position #3 on the WR Board of Directors are open.  Details regarding the nomination process and Board Member responsibilities are available later in the publication.
We hope your hunting season is going well and your dogs are working perfectly.  Hopefully you are finding birds; we actually are finding good numbers here in Walla Walla. 
Enjoy you hunting season,
Frank O’Leary
Western Regional Director
2019 WR Testing Schedule
The Western Region Board of Directors is putting together the 2019 Testing Schedule and needs your input.  The schedule is only as good as the information we have when we determining where and when to have tests.  Please submit your testing needs for 2019 at this time. 
To make sure that we met the needs of our members we need to know what type of tests you need (Derby/Solms/AZP/VGP), your location, and the breeding (pedigree) of your dog (to avoid judging conflicts).
Tests are expensive to hold with the cost of Judges travel, Judges housing & meals, and birds so it is important that we plan our test efficiently.  We want to meet the needs of our membership while controlling cost as much as possible. 
Please submit your needs by December 10th to:
