Secretary’s Report Rappahannock Chapter 2009
Thanks to everyone who came out and participated in our 2009 tests. We ran a total of 31 dogs over days of testing, including two 112 Prize I NA efforts in March and a whole lot of fun watching a rehomed dog with no training who had been with his new owner only a few days pull out a prize III-level score during an evaluation run in November. The 2010 entry form is now up on the NAVHDA international website atwww.navhda.org/testentry.pdf. At this point you can fill it out online and email it directly from the website by clicking on the mail icon and selecting the “Send Copy” option which will attach a PDF file or you can still print out and snail mail. If you are sending the form directly to the secretary via email please do check and make sure it is received properly as I’ve had a few instances where forms have come through blank. Watch our new website atwww.rappahannock-navhda.comfor updated information on 2010 events.
