TRAINING DAY AT GRUPE'S
At our training day in July, participants were queried about the possibility of hosting a training at Grupes ranch in Lodi. About 12 members expressed interest so the event was coordinated by Terri Gale and John Santin.
The class is now full with about 14 more advanced Senior/Master dogs and their handlers involved. If this works out, we hope to schedule more training days there in the future!

SUNDAY AUGUST 16TH, 2020
From Highway 12 turn South at Grizzly Island Road (at the Jack in the box in Suisun City) Drive about 11 miles (twisty turny) until you see a very long white fence - thats Grizzly Ranch. Turn right past the fence onto Van Sickle Road, then right again onto the ranch. As you drive down the driveway, you'll see the entrance to our field and ponds on the right.
As Saturdays group was focused on the more advanced dogs, lets plan this day to focus on what you need to be [...]
Start time - 9 am, (please come earlier and be ready at 9 to start.) We'll use bumpers and hand throws for marks. We'll setup about 4-6 land/water marks and folks can run them however they like based on their dogs level of training.
There is no cost for this training day for use of the CRTA grounds, however you need to sign a release of liability waiver once a year, and sign into the guest book every time.
Its possible we might have some live pigeons available, so you might want to bring about $5 per bird to reimburse the purchaser [...]
