  • Update on NRCC Task Force
    The NRCC Task Force continues to be very active with 5 Conference Calls, 1 meeting, a report to the NRCC Directors, NRCC Face Book development and much data collection/analysis and brain-storming among themselves and others. A start on their marketing Plan has begun. Some ideas are already being implemented for the NRCC Sponsors with much increased marketing for them. Field Trial clubs all across Canada will be asked to join this effort. The Task Force has also received information on some Hunt Test issues and find great similarities in issues. Therefore they will be discussing mutual action plans and cooperation with the Hunt Test community when they have a better idea of priority action items for field trials and corporate sponsors.
    Please continue to feel free to offer input to any of the members. Daniel Shnitka (BC), Bruce Macdonald (AB), Jim Couch (SK), Kevin Cheff (ON), Tom Dalton (ON), Derek Dunn (NB), Dennis Voigt, Chair (ON).
