    Interesting Info

    Just was thinking while reading about the recent Grand National Grouse Championship and following the current points leader for dogs and handlers and it got me thinking.

    It was I believe November of 2001 that I started this board and although other social media has moved much information away from this site, I am proud of the good that has come from this site, from getting the news out about trials to just bringing the community closer together. I have no idea how many got to their 1st trial because of something they found on this site but I do know it has happened many times.

    Thanks to all that have taken the time to use this site to share information for those looking for it.

    Hard to fathom that this site has existed for 21 years but it has. Many other bird dog pages have come and gone in that time and its been around longer than Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, maybe it will out last some of those.

    Keep posting because people are looking for the info you post.

    Thanks to all.
    Bill

      Bill, I appreciate the Message Board and depend on it for my little taste of cover dog news. I've bought and sold on the Trading Post. And sadly received the bad news of old friends passing.
      It's a long way from N Florida to the cover dog woods. I could not still visit without you and the Message Board.
      Thank You & May God Bless,

          Thanks Cipp. Cipp is the kind of guy that keeps field trials alive. Selflessly working to keep trials running at Ionia and Highland. Thanks for all you do!

          I am one of those that found my first trial here. I still prefer this site over any of the fb groups as itís a centralized place to go and the information is easier to find in my opinion. Thank you for starting this and keeping it going.

            Coverdog and a good deal of walking info is definitely easier to find at this site.
            Thanks Bill

              It is refreshing to go to a site that is NOT politicized by far out idiots. I enjoy the trial info and have benefitted greatly by using the site.

              Thanks for all your hard work over the years to stay the course.
