- Sad news. On January 4, 2015 we lost long time field trialer Pat Fitzpatrick (PJ). Our condolences go out to Helen and family. PJ purchased his first Labrador Retriever in 1958. He became interested in training his dogs, and for 50 years competed in and judged field trials all over North America. The highlight was winning the Canadian National Amateur Championship with his dog, NAFTCH FTCH AFCTCH FC AFC Gunstock’s Caramel Crunch. For over 25 years Pat & Helen spent their winters in Florida and Georgia, training the dogs. Over the years, PJ served as President and Director of the National Retriever Club of Canada; an Executive member (17 times) of the Manitoba Gun Dog Association and President of the Delta Marsh Retriever Club.
- Our condolences go out to Gerry and Grace Burmaster on the loss of FTCH AFTCH Pilkington's Casper of Mt. Granite. Casper finished 7 Nationals and I’m sure those wonderful memories provide you comfort at this time. Our thoughts are with you.
- Dates and locations for the 2015 National Amateur and National are now confirmed. 2015 National Amateur will be held in Balmoral, MB from July 13-18. 2015 National will be held in Brighton, ON from October 4-10. Mark your calendars and book your holidays now.
