Upcoming HRC Hunt Tests

Our winter test is scheduled for December 8-9, 2018. Our spring test is scheduled for February 9-10, 2019.

Upcoming Seminar

CFHRC will be hosting a Judges/Handlers Seminar on Saturday, June 23 from 9 am – 2 pm at the Caito Ranch in Groveland, FL.  Pizza and drinks will be served for lunch (so if you aren’t a pizza fan, bring your own lunch!).
The purpose of the judges seminar is for the handler to gain knowledge and understanding of the HRC program and its rules and policies.  Knowing how judges are really looking at your dog and how tests get set up is invaluable knowledge for the handler.  So this seminar is for everyone!!  Some of what you will learn is how hunt tests get set up, what judges expect performance wise from your retriever, how they evaluate your retriever, and also what is expected of you, the handler, at a hunt test.
This seminar is also mandatory for current judges and future judges to be used as a credit toward their judge’s license.  You must attend a judges seminar every 3 years to maintain your license, so be sure to check if you need this seminar to stay current.  It is an excellent opportunity and location.
If you have any questions, please call Ray Caito at 813-966-5595.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to secretary@cfhrc.net and the address and directions will be sent to you.

Upcoming Teaching Days

Our teaching days are usually held once/month. Please check our FB page https://www.facebook.com/Central-Florida-HRC-200091325334/ for dates.

How to get there:

Wayne Gey’s Golden Oaks Ranch is on the west side of CR 455, about one mile northwest of Montverde and two miles south of Ferndale. The gate is located at Katie’s Landing Road (a dirt road). We will have a sign at the entrance.

Richard Davis’ Meadow Woods Farm in Bushnell is located off US 301 between highway 48 on the north and highway 50 on the south. Go about 2 1/2 miles south of Bushnell on 301. Look for a little sign for CR 654 on the west side of 301. Turn on this road and go until you see the sign for the Davis property (it is pretty much at the end of CR 654 just before the road curves to the left). We will have CFHRC signs on 301 and at the entrance to the Davis Ranch.

Tips:

We need some members to come early and help set up, and others to come later and help clean up. Please “throw before you go” – throw before you run your dog (if you run multiple dogs, throw multiple times)  When Birdboys are used donations are greatly appreciated to help cover the cost.

Bring your lunch, drinks, chair, water for the dogs, training stuff, and of course the dogs. At all locations please shut gates if you found ’em shut. See you there!
