2012 National Amateur Invitational Championship

Posted on : Wednesday February 1 2012

The Alabama Region of the NBHA hosted the National Amateur Invitational Championship. We were privileged to have the use of Ken Tolbert’s training grounds and facilities not to mention his equipment, dog trailer, four wheelers, of course the legendary Mr. Charles Aston and his mechanical mule handled the dog wagon chores and helped everyone that needed assistance. We would have been hard pressed to have put this stake on without the generosity of Ken Tolbert, his family, Mr. Charles Aston, Mr. Brud Powell of Arab, AL. Ken Tolbert and Brud Powell of Arab Ala. filled the judicial saddles for both stakes. We want to also thank our generous sponsors for the continuing support of our events. The NBHA and event host are truly rewarded by the support from Purina, Tri-Tronic’s, Christie Enterprises, and Gun Dog Supply. All of the added winner’s gifts are additional rewards for their effort in the bird dog world. Thanks again to everyone.

Eboga Go Go Ann, a coming eight year old pointer female, owned by Charles Aston and handled by Ken Tolbert, was named the 2011 NBHA Mid South Region Champion.

Fishing Creek Bird Dog Club Results Updated

Posted on : Wednesday November 16 2011

Fishing Creek Bird Dog Club - Saturday Oct. 29, 2011 The Fishing Creek Bird Dog Club held a NBHA trial. Heavy fog caused a delay running but once we got started we had a great day. Mike had the grounds in superb shape and birds were plentiful. Lunch was served on the grounds and everyone had a great time. The open shooting dog was won by Her Ruby Red Slipper an Irish setter owned and handled by Allen Fazenbaker. Ruby ran a nice forward race with bird work all in order. Second place went to Rare Coin owned and handled by Arnold Hall; this English Pointer male done a nice job but not quite as consistent as Ruby. Third place went to Gary Vitali’s male English setter, Vitali Grouseringer Sam I Am. Sam ran a little inconsistent but finished with a solid third place.

News from the Greypointe trial Sept. 24-25

Posted on : Tuesday September 27 2011

From Doug Meyer - Good trial – a half dozen newbies to the game. I explained to them how to find the trials on the American Field website and Kansas Hunting Dog website. I hope some new people call in as it would be great to get them started with more than just this event. This was the first NBHA trial for Dr. Hoehns – former NSTRA guy. This was the first trial of any kind for Vinnie Nickell. Also it was the first non-AKC trial for Kelli Johnson and a couple other new folks that did not place. We drew for the first of the Gun Dog Supply $25 gift certificates – all winners received plaques and Purina coupons and we had a birthday cake for Marvin McDowell who turns the big 8-0 soon. That was fun and Marvin gave quite a bit of encouragement to several handlers and their dogs. Good luck this trial season!
