What is your participation interest?

The membership form that is completed each year helps to indentify the areas of interest you have with our club.  Whether it is events, membership, sponsorship, work parties, fundraising activities, training groups etc.  Over the years, it has become more and more that we receive only your cheque or etransfer, but no form that indicates your interest.  The form also provides us with your mailing address and phone number and email address.  

If you have a particular area of interest, please contact one of your executive members to share or send an email to  We would love to hear from you.

Hunt Test and Field Trialers

Updated Rule Books

Every three years, the new rule books are published.  They are currently available online.  It is important to review and understand the rules, how they are to be interpreted by both the handler, a judge, or observer.  Discussions are underway to host a review of the books in late April or Early May, these are a great time for new and mature members to get together and get on the same page together as we kick off the season.

Starting March 10, 2020

Grounds Development Underway

Starting March 10th, digging will commence on the west side, with the east side to be done during the spring.  Areas have been staked out by Colin and Dewayne.  There will be finishing work required along with seeding.

Please stay tuned with ways you can help assist with making our grounds the beautiful area that it is.  With your help, we can save on expenses, and have socialble work parties together!

CPR Training

Please stay tuned for an upcoming announcement for any members who wish to obtain their certified CPR certificate.  Last year we purchased an AED unit for the clubhouse to assist our members in the event that this life saving equipment is required.  It is our desire to have trained CPR members at all of our events and on the grounds.  If we have committed members, the purchase of this equipment will be free to the club as well.  This is a win-win.  Plans are underway to schedule training in late April.
