Cowtown Club News:
Spring, 2013 Upland Hunt was a huge success!! We thank all that worked -
and played - with us at the event! The food, company and dogs were were
a winning combination and we look very forward to hosting our regular
hunt this pending Fall.
We're thrilled to be hosting a
demonstration May 4-5, 2013 from 12pm - 4pm at the
Fort Worth Mayfest.
Contact Shawn Shannon for details about the event. We hope to have our
entire membership out to meet, greet and retrieve!
Make sure to wag your hands
and tails at the meetings - or via email - and let us know how you guys are
doing! We'll be increasing the frequency of our training as we can to help our
members and their dogs get and be ready for the hunt test season. With all the
hunts around us on weekends, training days will be limited so grab a training
partner or partners in the club and get out there with your dog!
Club members: make sure to let
us know when you get a title or reach one of HRC's milestones via contacting
to our club president, Shawn Shannon.
