Hello everyone.

 There will not be a meeting for CMRC on Monday August 6, 2018 due to the Fall Field trial being run on August 3 – 5, 2018.

 The club is looking for volunteers to help run the event.  We need stakes chairs, marshals, bird throwers, live gunners, some one to help clean the club house prior to the event and people to take birds from line.

 If you are able to help a half day or up to all full 3 days, please call Duane Smith at 612-366-6346 or Linda Twiss 612-964-7543.

 Thank you for your help.

The Annual CMRC shot clinic will be held in the parking lot of CMRC on May 9, 2018 starting at 3 pm.  The shot clinic will be followed by the monthly club meeting at 7 pm.


The April Informal has been cancelled.

Between the snow and water running over the fields and dike road,

the grounds have taken a big hit. 

Rather than risk rutting up the grounds, we have decided to cancel the April event. 

The next Informal will be held on December 16, 2018.


Thank you all for making the banquet a GREAT success! !!!
