UNLESS YOU HAVE 2 DOGS ON TRAINING DAYS ONLY SIGN UP OR THE UPPER  (B, C, D, E) OR LOWER FIELD (F)-NOT BOTH. MAKE SURE YOU SIGN UP FOR THE LEVEL YOUR DOG IS AT. 

ONLY SIGN UP FOR ONE OUT OF B,C,D, and E- These are all done in the lower field.  Pick one to concentrate on with your dog.  

F is for dogs who are steady, have a consistent recall and are ready for birds to be shot over them.

Use the Training Clinic Attendance Form (you may amend your form after ordering birds we will nnot amend your order for you) to order your birds and ducks. Attendance Forms for the training clinics must be received by midnight of the Friday one week prior to the day of the training clinic.  

Each member is responsible for putting in a Training Clinic Attendance Form for each training clinic they wish to attend. The Attendance Form can be found on our chapter website or below. Chapter policy on ordering birds requires you place your order one week in advance, pay for and take your order into your possession prior to the start of the Clinic.

If you do not reserve birds there will not be enough for you.

All birds ordered by you will be charged to you in the event you don’t show up.
