Welcome Statement

Dear Hunting Retriever Enthusiasts,
Platte Valley Hunting Retriever Club invites you and your dog(s) to participate in our 2022 Spring UKC Licensed Back-to-Back Regular Hunt Test on April 30 and May 1, 2022. We will be using the excellent hunting grounds and enjoying the hospitality of Indian Meadows Hunting and Fishing Club. Indian Meadows is a 100-year old, family held, 5,000 acre farm and ranch. It is located along the South Platte River Valley, isolated from public access on three sides of the property. Plentiful natural resources and five generations of habitat management have created a property that provides a wealth of wetlands, marshland, lake sites, farm land and upland ground.
ALL ENTRIES WILL CLOSE ON THE DAY OF THE HUNT. We will be using Hunt Secretary to help manage our entries. When Hunt Secretary is used, you will have immediate confirmation that your dog is entered. There will be a cutoff date with Hunt Secretary on Tuesday April 19, 2022 prior to the hunt test. If you wish to enter after that date, you will need to contact Lee Ann Heldt (970) 231-6657, laheldt@hotmail.com. We strongly encourage you to use Hunt Secretary prior to April 19th so you will be included in the Catalog and there will be a $10 late fee charged for each entry per dog received after midnight on April 19th. You must register your dog with UKC within 60 days after passing to retain your points if not already registered.
ENTRIES: The entries are limited to the number listed on the premium. If an entry is sent express mail or overnight mail, make sure that signature is NOT required for delivery. IF YOU MAIL YOUR ENTRY AND WISH CONFIRMATION, SEND A STAMPED, SELF-ADDRESSED ENVELOPE OR POSTCARD OR EMAIL ADDRESS.
SCRATCH POLICY: There will be no refunds for “No Shows”. Only injuries and bitches in season will be entitled to a refund with verification signed by a veterinarian.
CHECK IN: Sign in will begin at 6:45 a.m., and handlers meeting will begin at 7:20 a.m.
CLOTHING AND GEAR: All participants must wear hunting attire appropriate for a Colorado duck/dove/upland hunt. Hip boots and/or waders along with a duck call may be required in Started, Seasoned, and Finished level tests. Rain gear is suggested for our fast changing weather. Please come prepared!
HUNT GROUNDS: Again, the Hunt will be at Indian Meadows Hunting & Fishing Club at Snyder, CO [be sure to check out their web site – http://www.indianmeadowshunt.com]. This property is an excellent hunting area offering more than 5,000 acres of various ponds and wetlands plus a wide variety of terrain making a realistic and challenging site for our Hunting Retriever Test. We are excited at the opportunity to use these grounds so please treat them as if they were your own. You will find written directions to Indian Meadows at the end of this letter.
SATURDAY EVENING SOCIAL: : Meet new friends, renew old friendships, share a few good hunting stories, and have a good time by joining us at approximately 6:00 pm at the Indian Meadows Hunting & Fishing Lodge. Adults will be $20ea and kids 12 years and under are $8.

REMEMBER…
*Started Hunting Retriever (SHR) The Started Hunting Retriever (SHR) title is earned by earning four (4) passes in the Started category. However, only 10 points count towards your HR title and all other subsequent titles. Points/passes earned in a higher category [Seasoned, Finished, or Upland] do not count toward the Started title.
Platte Valley HRC wishes luck to every participant and look forward to seeing all of you. Get your entries in early and make your lodging reservations now. If you have any questions, call Lee Ann Heldt (970) 231-6657, laheldt@hotmail.com.
