WELCOME STATEMENT

The Welsh Springer Spaniel Club of America (WSSCA) invites you to participate in our Spaniel Hunt Test at Briar Creek Hunting Preserve in beautiful Thomson, Georgia.

We are pleased to be running our test in close proximity to the Wateree Spaniel Club’s Hunt Test, which is also on the Briar Creek Hunting Preserve. You may consider entering both tests on each day, and we will do our best to make sure that you are accommodated.

We are likewise pleased to be partnering with HuntSecretary.com again this year. All entries must be submitted through them, either online or by mail.

Entry is limited to 35 dogs each day. To be added to the Waiting List, please email your dog's name, stake(s) and day(s) to enter, and the name of the event (WSSCA Hunt Tests) to akcdiv@huntsecretary.com.

This event is open to all breeds eligible for AKC Flushing Spaniel Hunt Tests.

Throughout the weekend, we will practice social distancing and will follow the AKC's "Suggested Best Practices for the Well-Being of Dog Sport Participants," May 12, 2020.
