NADKC - Western Region

February 25, 2018

Message from the Director

Western Region Members,

With most of the winter behind us and hopes of spring approaching training and testing are on everyone’s mind. In Walla Walla things are still really wet and getting back in the fields is still a challenge.

The Western Region Board of Directors has been busy finalizing the judging teams for the 2018 testing schedule. The Judges for the spring tests and most of the fall tests are posted and can be viewed: To view the 2018 WR Testing Schedule & Judges, please click here.

The information sheet for the Spring Derby in Utah is available and the one for Walla Walla will be out by the first of March. If you are planning to test in a WR Derby please enter now. The test in Utah is full and one day of the test in Walla Walla is full now and we know there are still dogs to enter. These will be the only Derbies in the Western Region so enter now and don’t be left out. Please use the WORD.doc we developed for the Western Region as your entry form. This fillable form will work in you Internet Explorer or Chrome browser, it will not work in Fire Fox. Please click here for the Entry Form.

If you are participating in the Derby and would like to work your dog in the fields where your test is being held please contact Tyler or myself and we will schedule a time to make that possible.

Also, the fall tests are posted. Please make your plans early and get your entries in to secure your spot in the test of your choice. The Judges for the fall tests are mostly posted on the test schedule. We do not anticipate the third Judges creating any conflicts. When entering please be mindful of any possible conflicts and avoid them. The WW Test on November 2nd - 4th is a provisional event. If we have enough interest the test will take place.

To the WR members that have paid your NADKC dues for 2018 we thank you. For those of you that have not already paid your dues please do so now to avoid missing the deadline of February 15th.

Unfortunately, if you miss the deadline there will be a twenty-five dollar reinstatement fee added to your dues.

We hope that you are all able to re-engage in your training and enjoying your dogs.

Frank O'Leary
