Welcome Statement

Dear Participants -

Thank you for your interest, support and participation in the Western Colorado Hunting Retriever Club's (WCHRC) annual Hunt Test. WCHRC's 2020 UKC/HRC Licensed "Back-to-Back" Regular Hunt Test will be held on Saturday and Sunday, July 18th and 19th.

WCHRC feels very fortunate to be able to put on a Hunt Test in 2020. With that said, COVID-19 is still serious concern. If you are feeling sick or have flu-like symptoms, please stay home, self-isolate and get tested for COVID-19. If you are at risk to severe illness from COVID-19, please continue to stay home. Finally, please practice social distancing (6+ feet from others), don't gather in groups, wear a mask if/when social distancing is not possible, and practice good hygiene (wash your hands often!).

We sincerely hope that you will attend, enter your dogs, have success and bring home some ribbons - however, most importantly, we hope that you have a SAFE and fun-filled weekend!
