DEADLINES

Hi Members

 

I am sure everyone in the club would like an update on the upcoming VCNC events. The board has discussed the April events with each chair. For the safety of all of our members and friends outside of the club, it has been decided that we will either cancel or move all April events.  Further Coyote Hills has canceled their all-breed dog show, which in turn, cancels our specialty. We are leaving the May events in place for now. I will update you all as we get closer to the event. Here is the disposition of our April and May events:

 

Fun Field Day – April 04 has been moved to Saturday, May 30. If you have entered your dog(s) into this event, you will have a choice between keeping your entry and receiving reimbursement. An email will be sent to you asking what you would like to do. We are hoping this date is far enough out that we can hold this popular event.

 

Snake Break – Sunday, April 26 is canceled. We canceled this event before it went up on the VCNC website.

 

Walking Field Trial – April 18-19 is canceled.

 

Hunt Test – May 09-10 has NOT been canceled. We will assess as we get closer.

 

VCNC Specialty – May 15 is canceled due to Coyote Hills canceling their event.

 

We are sorry for canceling these events but we truly feel it is far better to be safe than sorry. If you have any questions please send me an email at ncolwell@pacbell.net.

 

Regards

Nancy

UPCOMING EVENTS

 

Vizsla Fun Field Day

New date: May 24, 2020

This is a great opportunity to expose your puppy or adult dog to the joys of hunting birds in the field. The Fun Field Day is particularly geared towards novice dogs of any age and their novice owners by giving them a chance to see what fieldwork is all about. Advanced handlers and their experienced Vizslas are also welcome to attend in order to fine-tune their hunting skills and show off their dog's abilities. The training courses will be run similarly to hunt tests or field trials. This allows you to work on handling skills. Lunch will be available on site.

Download and print event details and forms for an offline friend.

Walking Field Trial

Event Cancelled!

All handling on foot. More general information about AKC Field Trials for pointing breeds are here

In addition to the AKC stakes, the VCNC is proud to offer on non-AKC sanctioned stake for Vizslas only: 

 

Hunter’s Gun Dog: A Vizsla only stake. Dogs are not required to be steady to wing and shot but must show hunting desire, establish and hold point well, and reasonably retrieve to the handler. Ideal for dogs between the Junior and Senior Hunter levels.

Hunt Test

May 9-10, 2020

The VCNC organizes a Hunting Test under AKC rules. The event will be held at Hastings Island Hunting Preserve north of Rio Vista, CA. 

More general information about AKC Hunting Tests can be found here.

Specialty and Sweepstakes

Event Cancelled!

These Conformation events are held over the duration of 3 days. A club meeting and potluck lunch will also be held on one of the days.
