(The Heart and Soul of our Club)
CMRC holds Informal Trials on the third Sunday of the month in December, January, February, March and April. All retrievers and their human handlers are welcome no matter what the skill level. Informal events are about teaching and learning in a fun environment. Registration begins at 8am and the events begin at 9am. Entry fees range from $10-15 per stake.
Informal Events consist of five stakes (or divisions)
- Open All-Age(similar to AKC Open & Amateur stakes)
- Qualifying (similar to AKC Hunt Test Master stake with longer marks)
- Derby (doubles for dogs less than two years old)
- Hunters (similar to AKC Hunt Test Senior stake)
- Puppy (dogs less than a year old)
Dogs who have won the Hunters twice are no longer eligible to compete in the Hunters. Dogs who have won the Qualifying class twice or who have placed in the Open are no longer eligible to compete in the Qualifying
Successes of our informal events depend upon all participants pitching in to throw birds for each other……come on out and try, we will help you!
