May 13 update

Dear membership


Working with event chairs, the board has made the difficult decision to cancel the Fun Field Day as well as the Hunt Test this year. As much as the board and event chairs/secretaries tried, the shelter in place orders throughout the various counties are not being lifted evenly, so although Hastings is available, the committees and helpers are in counties that will still be affected. Further, we believe there will be a maximum gathering number imposed that will make it difficult to enforce.


Individuals that paid for birds for the Fun Field Day using PayPal will be reimbursed through the same system.


With the Specialty scheduled for September, we are hopeful it will remain on track.

April 28 update

Hello VCNC Membership


I am sending this note to inform you that the Hunt Test scheduled for May 9 & 10 has been successfully moved to the weekend of June 13 & 14. I want to thank Jeff and Stephan for making this happen. 


Your board of directors and event chairs/secretaries are working hard to do all that is possible to move events to new dates in hopes of not having to cancel them. We successfully moved the Fun Field Day, our Hunt Test and our Specialty to later dates. 


The Fun Field Day is in jeopardy of being canceled, given the event date of May 30. As we move further into May, I will keep you informed.

March 18 update

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 – Rescheduled to September 12, 2020 in Vallejo, CA in conjunction with Sir Francis Drake Kennel Club was cancelled.  The Specialty event in 2021 is scheduled for September 18-19, 2021.  Show entries will close on September 1, 2021.  


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.

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.

Vizsla Fun Field Day


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.

Hunt Test


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