A group of Amateur owner/handlers has been batting around the idea of having an Amateur Invitational. It would follow the lines of the Open Shooting Dog Invitational held in Missouri each December. The event would be held in early September in Nebraska and run on Prairie Chickens. The qualification period would start with the Sharptail Championship in September and run through the spring season. Trophies, additional prizes, and related details have yet to be determined. The first event would be held in early September of 2016.
Please, if you are interested we would appreciate your comments. They can be forwarded to Mike Patrick (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Keith Bryant (email@example.com). Your interest in this event is important to us and we need your response ASAP.
