WELCOME STATEMENT

The Wateree Spaniel Club invites you to participate in our Spaniel Hunt Test to be held on the grounds of Brier Creek Upland Preserve in Thompson, Ga.

We are excited to be working in cooperation with the Welsh Springer Club of America to offer four separate tests over the weekend of November 7 & 8, 2020. Participants will have the opportunity to enter each of the tests and potentially earn a title in one weekend. Our event is open to all breeds eligible to AKC Flushing Spaniel Hunt Tests.

HuntSecretary.com will serve as our entry service. Entries are limited to 35 each day and will close once the limit has been reached. To be placed on the waiting list, please e-mail your dog’s name, stake(s) and day(s) to enter and the name of the event (Wateree Spaniel Club) to akcdiv@huntsecretary.com.

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.

We look forward to seeing everyone in the field!

Sincerely,
WSC Hunt Test Committee
