2019 WR Test Schedule
 
The WR Board of Directors has finalized the 2019 WR Test Schedule.  We will be conducting a Derby/Zuchtschau in High River, Alberta, Canada.  Fall tests will take place in Conrad, Montana.  
 
The WR Board has attempted to appoint judging panels that are both competent and present the least possibility of conflicts.  Please review the schedule and announced judges carefully.  Judges will not be changed to eliminate conflicts.  At the Derby the Judges will be - Jeff Martin, Test Director, Jörg Kaltenegger, Senior Judge, and Mark Peasley.  At the VGP/Solms/AZP/Zuchtschau the Judges will be Jörg Kaltenegger, Test Director, Mark Peasley, and t/b/d.  It will be the leader’s responsibility to find a test where conflicts do not exist.  
 
If you have not entered a Derby please do so ASAP.   Information regarding who to contact for each WR test is available on the Test Schedule.  To enter the Derby please contact Randy Blanchard at 403-336-0365 or randy@blackfootkennels.ca.  To enter the fall tests please call Jerry Riewer at 406-450-1214 or citytransfer@earthlink.net
