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.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
