Hello Everyone,

We hope everyone and their families are doing well. Another hunting season has come and gone. With the start of a new year we begin to starting thinking about training and hunt test for the upcoming year. To prepare for this season we will be holding our annual club planning meeting on Saturday February 11th at 11am. Mike and Betty Boufford are once again generous enough to offer their house for our meeting.

Howell, MI 48855
Unfortunately, due to changes that have occured over the course of the past year we will be holding elections for all positions of the club. Positions available are President, vice president, treasurer, secretary and training coordinator. As of January 1st 2017 Larry has stepped down as President of the club. We would like to thank Larry and his family for their service to the club. Likewise, many of the other club’s leadership have had changes over the year resulting in a need for re-elections after 1 year. We will also planning details for this year’s upcoming field trial. We request that all members please plan to attend to help in elections and event planning. If you wish to run for a position and cannot attend the meeting please send us a personal message so we can include your name.
Lastly, with the start of the new year the annual membership dues of $25 are due. We will be collecting dues at the meeting, you can mail them to Shawn Getty (current treasurer), or new to this year we can accept paypal payments (centralmichiganhrc@gmail.com) .

What a great weekend we had!! Ran lots of dogs in the fun hunt. We met a lot of new people interested in learning how to train their dogs, so hopefully we will gain a few new members for the club after all he people we talked too!!

Also we made the newspaper with Josh Larsen and his pup Manistee being the main subject. What awesome exposure for our club!!  Take a look at the article!!
