Hemi,

What clubs in MN still host NAHRA events? I know of a couple that dropped NAHRA or the retriever club that held them folded. I heard overall that the NAHRA sanctioned events have dropped precipitously in the mid-west. They are still strong out east though as I have friends out there still running some.

I may try and go out and watch some water work. That is usually the most interesting event.

Good Luck!

Ken

Ken, Four Points is hosting this event. I do not attend many tests so I am not sure exactly how much the NAHRA events have decreased.

I wont be able to make it as I will be in Grand Marais sporting golf clubs and knickers this weekend...ok....maybe not knickers!!!

Not that it matters but does it cost any thing to be a spectator? Is Friday an okay day to go? Can you tell I havent been to one? I have a puppy in training and want to see what it is all about

Not sure about the NAHRA event as I have no experience with them but the AKC events I mentioned are no cost to spectate. Viewing gallery is usually within 100 yards or so of the working dogs so you get a pretty good opportunity to see all the action. Wear darker clothing so as not to distract the dogs. Nothing happening at the AKC events on Friday. Look for signs to registration or headquarters and state your intentions and I'm sure you'll get plenty of help/guidance. Events are junior, senior, and master in ascending level of training. Ask questions freely while in the gallery. These people are running their dogs because they're proud of them and will gladly talk about the event. Still waiting to see if our dog is entered for Sunday at Prior Lake. If so, will gladly meet up with you and show you around.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
