Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year. you know that October is Nationals time. This year the event was hosted by the Seattle Tacoma Club with the events held in Richland and Sunnyside . WA. Now this is not the Washington that everyone thinks of (at least not if you live east of the Mississippi) with trees. rain. trees and more rain. But rather all events were held on the eastern side of the mountains which is high desert with beautiful vistas. mountains. the Columbia river. lots of sunshine and sage brush. They grow lots of apples and cattle. make their own beer and drink an amazing amount of expresso. The National events. both show and field have grown by leaps and bounds. No longer are we excited with a 75 dog entry in the Specialty. it now takes 2 full days to complete the judging. The National Championships and their companion stakes have grown from a 4 day event to over 6 days. Along with the companion shows. Futurities and Sweepstakes many of us are at the Nationals for 10 days. some longer. The growth and sucess of the National events is exhilarating and exciting for those who have been involved since the begining of the "Nationals". but along with this growth comes a few lessons. The first of which is. this is no longer an event which can be run solo by the host club. Not too many clubs have members who can take 10 full days out of their lives to help run all aspects of the Nationals. It is simply too much work. Each year the host club is expected to reinvent the wheel. There are many aspects of running a National Specialty which could be taken care of by a National Show Committee. or by one person who does this every year. Let's take advertising for the Catalog. There is no reason for each club to have to appoint someone every year to go solicit ads. Someone living in Topeka. or Chicago or Miami could do this more effieciently. Then we have trophies. ribbons. judges gifts, judges hospitality (rooms, transportation, etc) that could be handled by someone outside of the host club. We have already taken steps to alleviate the problem of the host club coming up with the show judge for the National Specialty. That responsibility has been placed in the hands of the memberhship. Just one less thing for the host club to have to worry about. Future events will surely grow in entries and time. This is a good thing, but the question is can we cope with the growth? It seems to be the time for the Board to put their thinking caps on and come up with a solution before no local club bids for a future event.

SOME INTERESTING STATISTICS TAKEN FROM OUR 1997 NATIONAL CATALOG. In the National Specialty show there were: Junior Hunters 18 Senior Hunters 3 Master Hunters 5 Companion Dogs (CD) 4 FC I AFC I DC I Champions with field titles included MH SH JH

Side note1997 National Champion finished as a Dual Champion with this win. He also has a SH title.

Of the dogs placing in the Championships 2 were sired by DC/AFC/MH's 3 sere sired by Fe's 3 of thier mothers were FC/ AFC's 1 of their mothers were FC/ AFC/SH From these statistics. it seems that many breeders and owners are paying attention to both the conformation and working abilities in the German Wirehaired Pointer. It's wonderful to see so many dogs with both a bench championship and a field title in their name. Next years National events will be hosted by the Delaware Valley club and held in Sumerduck. VA. More details can be found in this newsletter. By the time this newsletter reaches your homes, the holiday season will be upon us and we will all be busy with family activities. The show and trial season will have ended and it's time to reflect on our accomplishments for the year. With the coming of the new year, it's also a good time to reevaluate our goals for the coming year. What are your goals for 1998? Happy holidays to you all, pat the dog and give your better half a hug

SECRETARY¡S NOTES Karen Nelsen

-IMPORTANLPLEASE

READ

There were several key issues decided upon at the Board Meeting held in conjunction with the recently concluded National Specialty. Please read all of these in order to be informed. These are in no particular order. SHOW FUTURITY: Beginning with the 1999 Futurities, the litter nomination fees will be the same for both the Show Futurity and the Field Futurity. The fee will be $20 per litter. NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP AND NATIONAL AMATUER CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFICATIONS: Beginning with the 1998 Nationals, in order to qualify for the National Championship and/or the National Amateur Championship, a doglbitch must have a placement in a broke gun dog stake. A Derby win will no longer qualify a doglbitch for these events. An extra line will be added to the entry forms on which the qualifying information must be provided. NAT. SPEC. FIELD DOG CLASSES Beginning with the 1998 Nationals, a dog/ bitch entered in the non-regular Field Dog/Bitch class must have no less than a Master Hunter leg and/or a placement in a broke gun dog stake. A Junior Hunter title, or a PuppylDerby placement will not qualify the doglbitch for the class. The same will be true if a Hunting Dog/Bitch class is held.

MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY: I.) The Membership Directory will be sent out with the June/July issue of the Wire-News in each year. 2.) The names of those who have not renewed their membership as of March 31 (the delinquency date) will be published in the April/ May issue of the Wire-News. For anyone whose name appears on the list, this issue will be their last unless dues are received. 3.) Names of new members, who join after the publication of the Directory, will be published at least twice during the following year. NATIONAL RESCUE:

The Vice-Presi-

dent will be the AKC contact person for rescues on a national level. This person's name will appear in the AKC Gazette as the person to contact. MASTER HUNTER AWARDS: Since the cost, and the number, of the Master Hunter Award has risen so dramatically, it is not longer possible for the GWPCA to absorb the total cost of the portrait, matting, and framing. Therefore, beginning January I, 1998, the owner of the dog earning the award can choose to pay half of the cost of the Award ($150) or not get the portrait. For general information, there was one Master Hunter in 1988 (the year the portraits began) and at the end of 1996 there were 10 GWP's who earned the title, plus two others who, unfortunately, were not National Club members at the time. AKC HEALTH FOUNDATION:

MEMBERSHIP

DUES:

Effective Janu-

ary I, 1998, membership renewal dues will be $30 for an Individual and $35 for a Family; for new memberships, the fees are $35 for an Individual, and $40 for a Family. However, dues paid prior to January I, 1998 may be paid at the current rate for 1998.

The

Board will be sending a letter to each local club soliciting donations to this fund. The amount donated by each local club will be matched by the GWPCA, up to a total of $2,000. The total amount will then be donated to the research area that has been dictated by the survey conducted by Regina Schwabe DVM, our Genetics Chair.

CODE OF ETHICS:

The American Ken-

nel Club is encouraging all parent club's with Codes of Ethics to include maximum/minimum breeding ages of the bitch, and mimimum age of the stud, as well as number of litters whelped by the bitch, in their Codes. Your responses to this issue would be appreciated. Please mail them to the Secretary. Those of you who responded through the "straw vote" on the internet need not reply again, unless you have something further to add. I have copied your responses from the internet. MEMBERSHIP LIST The Board approved a proposal that the membership list of the GWPCA be provided to Pointing Dog Journal magazine for a one time mailing. REMINDER FOR NATIONAL CLUB AWARDS: In order to be eligible for any National Award (Field Title, Dual Champion, Master Hunter, Top Show Dog - Breed and/or Group, Top Obedience Dog - Novice and Open/Utility), the owner(s) of the dog MUST be a National Club member(s) no later than March 31 of the year in which the dog earns the title. If you have any concerns or comments, please contact me by mail or through my e-mail address (rywyrd@pacbell.net). Remember, this is YOUR club! Till next time ..... Karen

TREASURER'S

ing our 97" Nationals. I had a great time just looking around at the wide open spaces, and laughing at my dogs the first time I turned them loose in the field. They turned around and looked at me as if to say, "and just were do you want me to go! I don't see any tree lines?" But it didnt take long and they figured out that sage brush wasn't very high but it could be considered an objective, and there are birds in it. Our national event is getting larger every year whether we hold it on the west coast, east coast or in the middle. The greatest increase is in field entries; Hunting Test 36 entries Field Trial 76 entries Michigan 1993 North Calif.- 1994 Hunting Test 31 entries Field Trial 99 entries Hunting Test 39 entries Field Trial 120 entries Michigan 1995, Wisconson- 1996 Hunting Test 43 entries Field Trial 155 entries; Hunting Test 29 entries Field Trial 157 entries. Washington-1997 This is about a 76% increase from 1993 to 1996, the numbers were down a littlethis year but still up a good percentage from 5 years ago. I am pleased to anounce that the GWPCA is going to donate up to $2,000 to the AKC Health Foundation. WE will be asking all local clubs or individuals for a donation, we will match these funds (up to $2,000) and donate it to the research program that matches the most prominent health problem in our breed, as determined by the health questionnaire that is almost compleat. Thanks again to Sea-Tac and congratulations to all the winners at the "97" Naionals.

MINUTES OF GWPCA ANNUAL MEETING - September 28, 1997 - Shilo Inn, Richland, Washington The meeting was called to order by President Bill Richardson at 9: 1OPM. Bill introduced the other officers and directors present: Penny Ljungren (Vice-President), Karen Nelsen (Secretary), Mal Decker (Eastern Director), Liz Barrett-Dixon (Mid-West Director), and Rocky Gilleard (Western Director). Absent was Treasurer, Linda Michaelis. The names of members and guests in attendance are attached. A quorum was present. The minutes of the last Annual Meeting were approved as printed in last year's Nationals Edition of The Wire-News. In the absence of the Treasurer, there was no Treasurer's report. Secretary's Report: Karen Nelsen reported that the Yearbook for 1996 would be completed and mailed out by Thanksgiving. The delay was because of the overwhelming responses the club had received from the advertisements in Gun Dog and The Versatile (NAVHDA) magazines, as well as inquiries from our exposure on the internet. (Other Board actions and decisions are reported elsewhere in this issue of The Wire-News.) Committee Reports: Webmaster - Sheri Graner: Sheri reported on what's in store for the GWPCA website. The site itself has been donated and the club has had to pay nothing for it. On the webpage is a gallery of Wirehairs, a section of "Frequently Asked Questions" (FAQS), and a rescue page. There is also a listing of officers. The upcoming Breeder's Directory will be incorporated onto the website,.as well as secretary's of the local clubs. The rescue procedure and a disclaimer will also be added to the Rescue Page. In addition, Sheri told members that "links" could be set up from the webpage to those breeders who have homepages of their own. Only breeders who are part of the Directory would be included in this service. Show Futurity - Aloysia Hard: Aloysia announced that the "payoffs" for the Futurity keep getting bigger every year. She will also be updating the Futurity Rules and these will be published in The Wire-News along with names of bitches nominated and the necessary nomination forms would be sent out on a timely basis. (To the breeders at the end of January - Senior and Intermediate nominees, and at the end of April to the Junior nominees.) A complete listing of all Futurity Nominess will also appear in The Wire-News. This would eliminate any problems about who was nominated and who wasn't. Breeder Referral- Nancy Mason: Nancy stressed the importance of contacting her if you are planning or expecting a litter. She has inquiries from as far as South America and Canada. The Breeder Directory is now ready. The majority of these have been sent to Rhonda Amundson, the Membership Chairman. As Hospitality Chairman of the Nationals, Nancy mentioned that there would be hospitality at the Field events. And she stressed the importance of cleaning up after your dog on the hotel grounds. Judges Education - Judy Cheshire: Judy reported that this was the first time since 1987 that a Judges Education Seminar was held in conjunction with our National events. The attendance was more than double the number of expected judges. In the future, however, only judges will be allowed to attend the seminars. In addition, there are four judge liaisons in different areas of the country to assist her in putting on the seminars, which will all be standardized. Genetics - Regina Schwabe, DVM: In Regina's absence, Bill reported that the results of the Genetics Survey will be reported in an upcoming issue of The Wire-News. In addidtion, Regina will be attending the AKC seminar in November. Membership Chairman - Rhonda Amundson: Bill reported that the Board had approved Rhonda as Membership Chairman. Rhonda will be handling all inquiries from magazine advertisements and general inquiries regarding membership in the GWPCA. She will mail out the Breeder Direc-

tory to those inquiring about breeders, and the Breed Booklet to those seeking general information. She will also be maintaining the membership roster. Any and all questions regarding membership dues should be directed to the Treasurer, Linda Michaelis. AKC Delegate - Patricia Laurans: Karen Nelsen read a letter from Pat, who couldn't be with us because of ajudging assignment. Her letter indicated how pleased she was to serve as our delegate on the AKD Board, and that she was asked to serve as the Board liaison to the Delegates Parent Club Committee. She also attended the AKC Gun Dog Championship and was proud that our breed was represented by several fine GWP's, and that one of our members served as a judge. She is looking forward to seeing us at the Nationals next year. Election Results: Bill announced that no additional nominations were received. Penny Ljungren, Karen Nelsen, and Mal Decker have been reelected as Vice-President, Secretary and Eastern Director, respectively. The Board taking office January 1, 1998 will consist of officers: Bill Richardson (President), Penny Ljungren (Vice-President), Karen Nelsen (Secretary), Linda Michaelis (Treasurer), Mal Decker (Eastern Director), Liz BarrettDixon (Mid-West Director), and Rocky Gilleard (Western Director). New Business:

1998 National Events: Judy Cheshire gave a report on the Nationals being held in 1998. Judy will serve as Specialty Show Chairman, Linda Krepak as Obedience Chairman, Mal Decker as Hunt Test Chairman, and Bernee Brawn as Field Trial Chairman. The event will begin on Friday October 23, 1998 with the Delaware Valley GWPClub Specialty and Sweepstakes. This will be held in conjunction with the Middleburg Kennel Club all-breed show in Leesburg, Virginia. Breed Judge is Barbara Heller and Sweepstakes Judge is Ellen Grevat. The GWPCA Futurity and Supported entry will be held the next day in conjunction with the same all breed show. Breed judge is Jim Reynolds and the Futurity will be judged by Ken Wall. The GWPCA will also support the entry of the Charlottsville Kennel Club all breed show in Charlottsville, Virginia on Sunday October 25. The banquet and Annual Meeting will be held on Sunday. Monday October 26 will begin with the National Specialty Show and Obedience Trial at Summerduck, Virginia. Breed Judge is Anne Rogers Clark. Sweepstakes will be judged by Robert Perry. Veteran Sweepstakes will also be offered. The Hunting Test will begin on October 27, as will the Field Events. In addition, an Agility Match will be offered for the first time at a Nationals.(Please note that all events and judges are as per AKC approval) Membership Dues: Because of increasing costs of printing and mailing The Wire-News, and the decrease in advertising revenue, Bm reported that the Board has approved an increase in membership dues effective January I, 1998. The option was to leave the dues as is, however, the quality and frequency of publication of The Wire-News would suffer. Renewal dues for an Individual would be $30 ($35 for new membership), and $35 for a Family renewal ($40 for a new membership). However, members may renew at the current rate of $20 and $25 (Individual and Family, respectively), if the dues are paid prior to January I, 1998. Presentation of Awards: Trophy Chairman Ann Duffin made the announcement of the Annual GWPCA Award Winners, and presented plaques to the owners of those dogs earning the awards.

Dear Editor: I want to share with the entire GWPCA some feelings I had at the recent National Convention. The convention itself was nice. The weather was nice for each of the events and we did have a good attendance. My concern is the "talk" at the convention. As my interest started in dog showing, people told meabout the politics which came along with breeding and showing, but I did not want to believe. I thought I could be a duck and let the drops roll of my back, but I can't. I heard more neagative comments about people and their dogs, than I have ever heard before. Are we all that scared of competition??? Are we afraid of other people's abilities?? Each and every dog at the convention deserved to be there. Not because we thought we could win but to show all our "friends" in OUR club the time and effort we have put into our companions!!! I did not see one perfect dog nor did I see a dog which did not belong there. Come on people! Don't shun people away from our conventions or our club. Encourage the membership, congratulate

the winners, listen

to the stories about our companions. Every action and comment makes a difference as we are mulling over the events on our trips' home. I don't want actions of other people to be my only memory of a convention. I even heard others say maybe they would only go every other year or every two years. Actions like these are not fair to our membership or to local clubs trying to host a convention. All I am asking is we as members take a look at our own backyard before we go looking into others. Sincerely, Kimberly Moreman

SHOW FUTURITY

Dr. Aloysia Hard- Show Futurity Chair

WHAT IS THE SHOW FUTURITY? The show Futurity is an event held in conjunction with the National Specialty show. The dogs competiting in the Futurity are from properly nominated litters and are between 6 months of age and approximately 18 months of age. In most years, these pups were born between April I of the previous year and March 31 of the year of the Nationals. For example, dogs eligible for the 1998 Futurity must have been whelped between April 1, 1997 and March 31, 1998.

WHY ARE THESE DATES USED? The Futurity classes are determined by age in the same way Sweepstakes and regular classes are. - 6-9 months of age (Junior), 9-12 months (Intermediate) and 12-18 months (Senior.) In order to do this, these dates are used. The only time the dates are altered, (as they were this year April I and March 28th) is if the National is held earlier than the middle of October. Had there been dogs nominated that were whelped between March 29 and March 31 (and there were none) these dogs would have been eligible for the 1998 Futurity and would compete in the Senior Class.

HOW DO I NOMINATE A LITTER? Litters must be nominated within 90 days of being whelped. The fee is $15.00 (Please note, however, that beginning witht the 1999 Futurity, the Board has raised the fee to $20.00.) Nominations forms are in the Wire News and in your Membership Roster. These nomination forms should be sent to the Show Futurity Chairman. The next step-

HOW INDIVIDUAL PUPS ARE RE-NOMINATED. Individual nomination froms are sent to the breeders at two times. In January, individual forms for each pup are sent to the breeder for all litters that were initially nominated. It is the breeders responsibility to send these forms to the owners of each puppy. In this way, the breeders can encourage owners to renominate their puppy and it is less likely that people will forget to send them in. Individual forms are sent out again to breeders who have nominated bitches between January and June. Most of these forms are sent out in May, but since breeders have 90 days, a few are sent out later. By what dates must individual dogs be nominated and wat are Forfiets. 1. Generally, the forms sent out in January are for dogswho will be in the Intermediate or Senior Class and the 1st Forfiet is due by March 1st. In the case of Intermediate and Senior dogs, two Forfiets of $10.00 each are reguired- the first by March 1 and the second by July 31st. Often owners will send the entire $20.00 in March so they don't forget.

2. The forms sent to breeders in May are generally for dogs who will be in the Junior Class. These nominations and forfiets are due by July 31st and both forfeits totaling $20.00 must be paid at that time. 3. No second forfeits for Intermediate and Senior dogs and No nominations for Junior dogs will be accepted after August 1st.

WHY CAN'T A DOG BE ENTERED IN THE FUTURITY THE SAME WAY AS ENTERING IN THE SWEEPSTAKES? The Futurity is essentially a "bet" that the breeding being done will produce pups that are competitive in the show ring. The Sweepstakes differs in that the owner can wait until the entries close to decide that a dog should be entered.

WHY CAN'T THE SHOW FUTURITY AND FIELD FUTURITY DATES BE THE SAME? The Field Futurity is essentially a Derby stake and the maturity needed by these dogs to be competitive is entirely different than the maturity needed by the dogs in the Show Futurity to be competitive. Also, the judge for the show Futurity is aware of the age difference between the dogs because of the different age classes, Junior, Intermediate and Senior. In the Field Futurity all dogs are run to the same standard regardless of their actual age. Occasionally there will be a finished "Champion" entered in the Show Futurity but this is rare. If we used the same forfiet dates as the Field Futurity many of the dogs shown would be in the 18-24 months range therefore defeating the purpose of having a "Futurity".

WHY ENTER THE FUTURITY Aside from the honor of winning it, the prize money is generally fairly good, and growing each year. The Breeder of the winning dog gets a share of the purse, and the owner gets a share of the purse. This year, the Best in Futurity was also bred by the owner- she left with slightly over $350.00! Not bad for a $35 bet! In addition the trophies for Best and Best of Opposite are always very special. As a breeder we hope that you have enough confidence that the puppies you are producing will be very special. As such we also hope that you are confident enough to "bet" on it and nominate your litters. We also hope that you think enough of the individual pups from that breeding to urge the owners to renominate and enter those babies in the Futurity. Breeders- Nominate those litters! Owners- renominate those pups' Are you confident enough to take the "bet"?

SEATTLE-TACOMA GWPC SPECIALTY Laura Reeves, Show Chairman The wind blew over the tents and the rings several times. Then the sun came out and baked the asphalt and the mats. Then the wind came back and blew up a dust storm at the field events. And people STILL had fun' In one of the more exceptional examples of the dedication of Wire fanciers, the 1997 Nationals in Eastern Washington proved that a bunch of dog lovers can always enjoy themselves and their dogs. The hospitality room was constantly swamped, the Judges Education Seminar and Veterinary Seminar were successful, the competition was tough and wins were well-earned. The entries in the Sea-Tac and National specialties were huge, and the field events had the largest entry ever at a National. I was impressed with the number of people from around the country who pitched in to lend a hand when Mother Nature tried doggedly (no pun intended!) to blow the entire show into the Columbia River. Under occasionally trying circumstances, the judges, exhibitors and spectators all approached the shows with enthusiasm for the dogs being exhibited. It is safe to say that this year's shows offered a number of challenges for our club. Some we were able address, some remained problematic. Nonetheless, whenever and wherever you find a gathering of people who love our rough, unorthodox, slightly goofy breed, you'll find good dogs, good information and good times. More than anything, Nationals give us the opportunity to meet and greet friends and acquaintances from around the country; to see dogs in real life that only show up in advertising pictures, if that; and, to evaluate our own breeding programs against the cream of the crop. In these areas, folks who attended were richly rewarded this year.

JUDGES REPORT- DIANE A. SWANSON The day dawned bright and breezy. I think the host club changed ring equipment several times before settling on something that would stay put. The setting in a quiet comer of the motel grounds with the Columbia River and hills of eastern Washington in the background was worth the trouble though. I was impressed with the high level of overall quality. There were strong young classes, indicationg that breeders are dedicated to thoughtful, far reaching breeeding programs. A Specials class that left no doubt in anyone's mind as to their qualifications to be there. It is always a plaeasure to choose from such a fine display of the breed. Just wish I had more ribbons to dispense. The exhibitors conducted themselves in a sportsmanlike way. The only flaw in presentation I'll mention in passing is the "baiting game." It is singularly unattractive to have bait bits clinging to whiskers and beard or stuck between teeth. It also impairs proper gait to have the dog so tuned ino the bait pocket that he can't take his eyes or head away from it. The Juniors did a very nice job of presenting their dogs in a manner befitting the breed. They showed courtesy and sportsmanship towards one another. They are the handlers of the future. It was a very enjoyable assignment for me and I was pleased with what I saw. The breed is in good hands! Sincerely Diane A. Swanson

FUTURITY JUDGES REPORT

3rd Pearson's GERONIMOS BEARCLAW

Miss Sharon Pinkerton,

Yet another well grown dog, very similar to his brothers, but I found him to be shorter coupled, and not quite so good in profile movement.

Leics, England

I would like to thank the GWPCA for the invitation to judge at this year Nationals. I thoroughly enjoyed my third visit to the Nationals and appreciate the sporting way the exhibitors accepted my decisions. Generally I found that most of the exhibits under me were lacking the general muscle tone I expected to see in a sporting dog. Eye colour was disappointing with so many exhibits with light eyes, and even with maturity, will still finish on the light side. I found angulation similar to the UK dogs, good hindquarter angulation, reasonable angulation of shoulder, but lacking length of upper arm resulting in an upright position. I tried to find correctly proportioned dogs (i.e. 9-10), but a fair percentage of exhibits were shorter in body length than ideal. Lastly, coat. I consider this aspect to be important and was amazed at the difference in coat length and textures. A good percentage of body coats were of good texture and length, but personally I found the leg hair a little long and softer than ideal, and hardly any exhibits with short dense coat on the inside of the thighs - however I forgave this leg coat to a degree as it seems to be the normal method of presentation, yet I could not forgive coats that were long, soft and were lifting in the wind allowing pink skin to be seen. I hope the US exhibitors will take my thoughts in good spirit as I have tried to be constructive - no dog is perfect, but some of the points I have raised are characteristics that

Intermediate Dogs (2) 1st Owen & Litwin SCHNELLBERG'S

WARRIOR

SNEAK PREVIEW

Balanced head with a good eye colour for his age, just a little unsure in expression, strong neck, adequate bone, good feet, developing in body, short coupled giving a square appearance, when stacked appeared to be upright in both front and rear angulation, excellent coat, good condition, moved okay. 2nd Blanchard's SGR CLASSIC DESiGN Attractive dog, good head, unsure in expression, good proportions, didn't like being handled and I would prefer his coat to be shorter and of better texture. Senior Dogs (3) 1st Chism & Schoessow-Chism

AFTERHOURS

LOVER BOY

Excellent type of dog, masculine but not coarse. Head with a broad skull, excellent colour of eyes, strong lengthy neck, good bone and feet, very good shoulder, deep brisket, strong loins, very good angulation behind, in excellent coat and condition, disappointing movement with him crabbing badly which affected the dri ving movement and profile - lets hope he just grows out of this habit.

Best In Futurity- Ch Weidenhugel Garbo V Merlin

Best of Opposite Sex- Geronimos Bullet Warrior

set the GWP apart from other sporting breeds and as such need to be maintained. The GWP is not just a rough coated GSP!

2nd Persinger's EBB TIDE BAYCREST SPRING QUEST Very typy dog, good head, eye colour could be a little better for age, very good length of neck into good shoulders, very good body proportions, excellent angulation behind, moved with drive and excellent profile, I would prefer a better textured and shorter coat. 3rd Diehl's THORNWOODS PRIVATE EYE

Junior Dogs (4) 1st Torres & Gardner GERONIMOS BULLET WARRIOR- Best of Opposite Well grown puppy with good limbs and feet, balanced head with attractive expression, long neck into good shoulders, nice depth of brisket, good strong loin, correct height to length proportions, very good behind including second thigh, coat hard and of good length, very sound moving behind and covering the ground well. Best of Opposite 2nd Stomp & Myles GERONIMOS BRONCO WARRIOR Another well grown youngster, very stylish and eyecatching, strong head and good expression, good length of neck into good shoulders, excellent well boned limbs and tight feet, good body, shorter coupled than Bullet, good angulation behind, needs to develop more in second thigh, moved well but a little reluctant, excellent ground covering strides, he just basically gave up co-operating.

Well grown dog with a good head and expression, lengthy neck, a little slack in pasterns, good proportions and overall angulation. coat of good texture but a little thin in coverage, another dog who crabbed in movement resulting in lack of drive. Junior Bitches (3) 1st Rae & Brumbaugh GERONIMOS BOOTS WARETTE Very shapely puppy, pretty head, excellent length of neck, good bone and feet, body developing, very good angulation behind, a little lacking in second thigh, excellent condition, body coat of good texture, moved with dri ve behind and good profile

2nd Rae & Brumbaugh GERONIMOS BISKIT WARETTE So similar to her sister, just a shade bigger allround, coat texture slightly better than her sister, but on the day Biskit didn't move with quite the same drive behind. 3rd Risler & Strassman AFTERHOURS MAKIN SNOW ANGELS Much larger puppy of good type, pleasing head and good length of neck, very good depth of brisket, well angulated behind, good hard coat, moved okay, but for me she lacked femininity Intermediate bitches (5) 1st Diehls THORNWOOD WHOOPS A DAISY Very pretty well grown bitch, head balanced with good expression, strong neck, adequate bone with good feet, maturing nicely in body, good loins, well angulated behind, in excellent coat and condition, moved soundly 2nd Faust's VON DUFFIN'S LUCKY JENNY Typical bitch with a pretty head and expression, strong neck, well boned limbs, good depth of body and proportions, very good angulation behind, coat of good texture but a little long, moved well, especially in profile 3rd Litwin, Collins & Owen JAY-MAR HONOR V SCHNELLBERG JH Nice to see the working award - very feminine bitch with a pretty head, lengthy neck, fair bone and tight feet, shorter coupled than I like, good angulation behind, good coat, moved okay.

1997 SHOW FUTURITY Aloysia Hard, Futurity Chair This year, our Show Futurity had 28 beautiful young Wires entered. Miss Sharon Pinkerton who came all the way from England awarded Best in Futurity to Ch Weidenhugle Garbo v Merlin, owned and bred by Cynthia Heiller DVM and Toni Bravo. Best of Opposite Sex went to the winner of the Junior Dog class Geronimos Bullet Warrior owned by Lon and Sandy Torres and Cody Gardner and bred by JoAnne Steffes. Owners of the winning dog in each class received $105.00 and the breeders took home $70.00. The trophies for Best and Best of Opposite were, as usual, done by Gail Richardson and as always, were beautiful. In addition, a lovely print, donated by our judge, went to the Best in Futurity.

Senior Bitches (11) A super class of quality bitches.

1st Heiller & Bravo CH WEIDENHUGEL GARBO V MERLiN- Best In Futurity A very classy bitch, so typical, well grown bitch, with a balanced head, good colour eyes and expression, excellent length of neck into good shoulders, well boned limbs, deep and well sprung brisket, good loins, very good angulation behind including second thigh, coat of excellent texture and thick with undercoat, in superb condition, moved well. Best in Futurity - one that I could have quite easily taken home!! 2nd Heiller's CH WEIDENHUGEL GABBY V MERLIN JH The litter sister and so alike in many ways, I preferred Garbo's head, overall balance and her better topline whilst on the move - what a cracking pair! ! 3rd Hard's PIEMONTE ELENA V CHISOLA

Best In Sweepstakes- Ebbtide Baycrest Spring Myth

Striking bitch of good type, very good head and alert expression, strong neck, good limbs and tight feet, mature in body, very good angulation behind, in very good coat and condition, moved well.

IN SWEEPS THE HIGH JACKER

REGULAR CLASSES Ms. Virginia Lyne Saanichton, B.C. I was very honored to have the privilege to judge the National Specialty in Richland,WA. The entry of 101 was good and gave me some outstanding animals to select from. It was my intent to provide critiques on all 4 placings of each class and I used my trusty tape recorder to make my notes on each animal. Having survived specialties over the years and with freshly installed batteries, the recorder was ready for action.N OT! I am afraid I have no individual detail on the class placings as the tape was a collection of static. My most sincere apologies to those patient class winners who stood still while I thought I was recording detail for this critique. I have clear recollections of the key winners and can critique them from memory but because of the taping I made no other written notes for back up. Overall I was looking for a dog that had the essentials of balance and substance that had sound legs and powerful reach and drive. I felt that generally dogs were of good proportion, had good color and wire-like coats and facial furnishings. Some of the front action coming toward me was a little erratic- often the reflection of some steep upper arm angles. A few dogs lacked balance in angulation of front and rear which made for an awkward, rolling gait. A few tails were pegged higher than ideal though your standard permits a carriage "above the horizontal". Temperament was generally good. Bites were satisfactory- a couple had dropped incisors on the lower jaw. Some eyes were lighter than idea- those brown eyes are always a challenge in a liver animal!

Winners Dog FAIROAK'S DESIGNER GENES - caught my eye as he came into the ring for his presence and overall balance. A dog of some size, he showed quality in his set of shoulder balanced by a sweep of stifle and powerful rear action. He had a smooth flow of neck into his shculder and a firm topline. Good color and a crisp jacket completed the picture. He was Best of Winners.

Reserve Winners FAIROAK'S MR. SATURDAY NIGHT - very similar type to his brother who defeated him for the points- an upstanding dog of beautiful type with a correct jacket, good color and sound action coming and going. He did not have quite the presence and confidence of the Open class winner but has all the essentials of the breed. Winners Bitch EBBT/DE BAYCREST SPRING MYTH - out of the Bred by class, this bitch with several others from what must have been an outstanding litter (I believe at least 5 were shown under me with 4 Firsts in classes and one Second!) were such beautiful type. The Bred By Bitch, a fairly dark liver, excelled in flow of neck into shoulder and set-on of upper arm. She powered around the ring with effortless reach and drive looking as though she could keep going all day. Yes, I did fault her for not being in her best jacket on that day, but I felt there was sufficient texture and breed requirement to accept her on the day. Don't we wish we could have it all at once!

Reserve Winners-EBBT/DE BAYCREST SPRING HAIL - litter sister of the Winners out of the 12-18 class and while she is not quite as mature in body, she has I predict, tremendous potential when she is fully developed. She has a better jacket than her sister. Lovely expression: One to watch.

Best of Breed What an exciting line up of specials. There were some exciting dogs to examine. My eventual Breed winner, CH ADPG SUTHRN BREEZE

IH,

was a bitch I had never seen before but she gave me such a lovely package of breed essentials, showmanship and presence I found my eye kept being drawn back to her. Her movement is impeccable. She has a crisp jacket, good beard, firm topline and good eye. To be critical she might

appear to be a little too square on the stack but I felt that her proportion and balance on the move was correct and I always believe that kinetic balance is the true test.

Best of Opposite - CH RIPSNORTER'S

THUNDERHART

-

pressed hard for the breed. He has always been a dog I have admired for his overall balance and shape. He has presence and strength. He moves true with strong ground covering action. He was in goodjacket. Deep body and good coat. I preferred the bitch's upper arm set on.

Award of Merit winners were three exceptional dogs. Sound, good color and jacket and all the breed essentials.

Dixie is a wonderful family pet and hunter! Her temperment is superb, bold and friendly, relaxed and steady. Dixie is a smaller dog weighing 43 lbs. and 22 inches at the shoulder. Her coat has a very nice wirey texture and proper length. Dixie received a "GOOD" OFA certification SN276502. When the Dixie Dawggy takes to the field she is all business, the search for game never stops. Her desire for birds is exceptional! This sweet little dog doesn't quit. When running field trials she ranges out very well. She has received 12 placements in Puppy and Derby trials since last fall; 3x first, 2x second, 4x third and 2x fourth. In 1996 Dixie won the GWPCA National Puppy Classic, and this year won the National Field Futurity. To Greg and Liz Dixon, special thanks are in order for recommending this pup to me, and for all the help and encouragement over the last year and a half. Thank you Ron Wilson for breeding such a lovely dog! For information on future breeding contact: Mike Mordorski at 612-779-6540 mmordors@isd.net

1997 GWPCA FIELD EVENTS WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE AND HOW Doug Ljungren, National Field Trial Chairman Anderson Ranch outside

goes wrong and then you realize how important it is. Thank you Penny for the good work. Purina's con-

of Sunnyside, Washington provided a dramatic and rugged setting for the 16th Annual National Field Trial and Hunting Test. The field events started on Tuesday, September 30th and were concluded on Sunday evening (as the sun dropped over the hills) October 5th. The trial was run in typical chukar country, with sagebrush, steep ravines, and views that go on forever. Several coveys of Huns were found on course. This type of country will wear you down and the dogs had to be in good condition to complete their assignments with style and pizzazz. We ran every day from early morning until dusk, some days not even stopping for lunch. When you have to push this hard for this long, people get tired and it is easy for things to go wrong. The fact that we finished when planned and maintained the discipline required to run a sound trial is a tribute to some hard working people. There are many that deserve a big thanks. Larry and Nancy Mason did an excellent job with the hospitality. This is no small feat, especially given the lack of amenities in camp. Not only did they provide hospitality for the field events, their work really started much earlier as they were in charge of hospitality during the shows. Their motor home was the central clearing house for just about everything. Through it all they remained gracious and good humored. Thanks for hanging in there with the field trialers to the very end. The hunting test participants went hunting exactly like they would if they were going chuker or Hun hunting in this area. The Test went smoothly thanks to the efforts of Mark Berry, Chairman, and Aloysia Hard, Secretary and the assistance they received. The National Field Trial was the largest ever with 151 entries. A new technique was employed using stake managers who were in charge of the running of each event. I was quite lucky that there are so many knowledgeable GWP field trialers in the Northwest that could be confidently called upon. The stake managers, and the teams they assembled to help, each innovated, modified or just plain persisted to get the job done. These are the people that made it happen: Derby Classic- Joe DeMoura Water Test- Stuart Milbrad Amateur Championship- Mike Hemphill Puppy Classic - Bernee Brawn Futurity - Ray Calkins Open Championship - Mel Lee Penny Ljungren, our Field Trial Secretary, kept the paperwork in perfect order. This is an area that is often taken for granted until something

tinued support of the Nationals needs to be acknowledged. They supplied dog food to all placements in each stake as well as banners and orange hats. Our gratitude also goes to Mel and Karen Lee for donating the beautiful silver belt buckles for the winners of the two Championship events. Of utmost importance to me is that each participant be given a fair chance to compete. I believe this was accomplished. The stake managers did an excellent job of getting a sufficient number of birds in logical locations. The judges were attentive and considerate. The course was not biased to certain types of dog. These are the things that need to happen for everyone to be given an equal chance to demonstrate their dogs abilities. There were some unique problems that we had to overcome. Since this country is high desert, water barrels are typically placed on course so dogs can get a drink and cool off if needed. Anderson Ranch generously allowed us to use their 5-ton water truck to fill the barrels out on course. Unfortunately the fuel pump went out on the second day, stranding the truck I 1/2 miles from camp. This was a major concern to me. If the weather had turned warmer, we would have needed a lot more water on course. Without a truck, this was a disaster waiting to happen. Luckily two of our gunners were also excellent mechanics, and through their efforts, the truck was up and running before the water on course ran out. We also experienced a dead battery and flat tire on the dog wagon, a club loud speaker system that blew fuses, radios that wouldn't reach around the mountains, a major chukar breakout of the bird pen, 900 pounds of garbage that needed to be hauled away, and a wind that wouldn't stop. Through it all the trial rolled on thanks to the efforts of the stake managers. Yes there were things I wished were different. I wish our sound system and radios had worked so communication had been better. I wish a good course had started at the edge of camp rather than down the road. I wish the course had good cover and terrain up to 100 yards from the starting line rather than having to deadhead in. I wish we had time to stop and take pictures in the daylight. I wish we had not been forced to cancel the salmon bake due to the high winds. And most of all, I wish we had more time to relax, drink beer, and talk dogs. The 1997 National Field Trial and Hunt Test is in the books. See you in Virginia.

THE RUNNING This is the place where we normally give you the condensed version of each and every brace that ran. Unfortunately, the dreaded "winds" made the tape recording virtually useless. In between sentences and descriptions of the braces, was the unmistakable whrrrr of the wind. At times the tape is so garbled that I am not even sure who is talking. We tried to piece together as much of the stakes as we could remember, but since not all could be accounted for we decided to just give you the winners and placers in the Championships. Our apologies to everyone who was entered. Our thanks to everyone who volunteered to scribe the field events. Scribing is a tough assignment. You have to remember to watch all of the dogs and make sure you report on what happened in each and every brace. Sometimes the scribe gets caught up in the running and simply forgets their duties. This time it was a combination of the mechanical and mother nature. The mechanical lost and mother nature won. For any club that will be running the Nationals in the future, it would be good to keep in mind that it's safer to keep a written account of the stakes as well as a tape recording. The weather for the running was variable. It started warm and dry for the Derby and worsened as the week went on. The winds became strong during the afternoon and it was quite a test for both dogs, handlers, judges and gallery. Our gunners were magnjficint. They made shots that no one in their right mind would attempt, but they always kept the safety of the gallery in mind. Their good humor and bird sense made all of us handlers feel safe and quite at ease. Our judges were attentivie and very helpful, especially to those of us from other parts of the country. They maintained a sense of humor throughout the week and helped lighten up a couple of tense moments. We hope they had as much fun as we did. Without good judges an event of this stature could become just another weekend trial. They watched the dogs and gave them every opportunity to show what they were capable of. They also gave the handlers alot of room to handle their dogs, "do what you have to do" we were told right at the beginning of the trial. Some handlers took a bit more rope then they should have, and well, you know what can happen with all that extra room. You hang yourself! The grounds were BIG! The hills were STEEP' The draws and canyons were HUGE! The dust was THICK! And the wind NEVER stopped. This was Chukar country, where the birds run uphill and never seem to want to fly. Flushing a chukar is definitely a learned art, expecially out here where they have all the room in the world to run their little legs off. You can't simply run at them and hope they will fly, Oh NO! You can swear at them, yell at them and

throw things at them. But until they are ready and willing, you might as well just keep chasing them. And them dang little sage bushes, those chukar know real well that they can just keep running around them all day. Made flushing a real interesting spectator sport. The course started aproximately 1/2 mile out of camp, down a dusty lane through the ever present herd of cattle. They lined the road watching us go by, mooing every now and then and swat-

tion, desire and drive, and it shows what we may need for future breeding programs. Three great competitiors were retired from competition at this years event. Littermates FC AFC Sure Shot's Cruise owned by Mel Lee, and FC AFC Sure Shot's Cascade Miss Tique SH owned by Penny Ljungren both almost II years old and DC AFC Cascade Ike MH at 9 ran in their last field trial. All three dogs gave a good

ting flies. We broke the dogs up and over a hill and onto a sage covered flat. The sage in this part of the course was heavy and it was hard to see a dog in it. A small draw on the left gave the dogs other options to follow, and some did. Down the way we came to another draw and had to go through a fence and up another hillside bringing us to the first water barrel. The power lines followed this path and a "hedgerow" of sorts (of course made up entirely of sage) ran under the line. From this vantage point you could simply sit and watch most of the course beyond. A natural curve in the sage brought us down through yet another draw and here we had to climb a rocky hillside, onto the top of another flat. The dogs seemed to know that in order to find the elusive chukar, they had better go UP! And up most of them went. On down the course, we came to the only trees for miles around. Cottonwoods, down by the stream acted as a sentinal for the last portion of the course. Here the course narrowed to a rock wall on the left, a stream and some big open grass fields to the right. Most of the braces ended up somewhere in this neck of the woods. One of the interesting things about having a rotating National is that you get to run your dogs on grounds so very different then what you may have at home. I find it very interesting to see what the dogs will do when presented with something so very foreign to them. And I am almost always surprised that the dogs from other parts of the country put on good performances. They may not win, but they can show if they are adaptable and how quickly they can learn to go to find birds. It shows intelligence and coopera-

The retirees Crus ie, Miss Tique & lke showing with Cruise capturing 4th in the Amateur Championship.He also gave us one fine performance in the Open making all age moves that took him to the edge of the course. Ike and Tique ran good hard races, found thier birds and both dogs retired in style. Thank you Penny, Mel and Ray for letting us watch one more time. To the winners and placers, Congratulations. To the committees, Thanks.

1997 NATIONAL AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP JUDGES:

DAN HOKE & R.J.MARQUART 33 STARTERS

The 1997 National Amateur Champion FC Flintlock's HawkEye came from the 5th brace. Handled by owner Shawn Humphrey, Hawk ran a shooting dog race with 4 finds and a nice retrieve.(Unfortunately, scribe Mike Hemphill was more interested in watching his "trainee" run then giving us a lot of details, so that's all I can tell you about Hawk's performance.) Braced with Todd Manns and his young A Shot of Bailey's, the handlers rode fast and hard eating up most of the course in record time. In order to finish their 45 minutes they had to double back at the end of the course. The pace slowed considerably following this brace. The second place dog in the Amateur ran in the second brace of the Championship. Dee

Dee Yon Schyrental owned by Klaus Meyn and handled by Leslie Green ran a forward, intellegent race. Her first find at 10 minutes out ended with a nice retrieve. A covey find at 20 minutes with good manners and another 40 minutes into the course made her the dog to beat at this time. She was a fun dog to watch and handled beautifully for her handler. Third place in the Championship was awarded to Sure Shot's Justa Miss Marker JH owner handled byPenny Ljungren.Braced with FC AFC Jim Kath's Allure, handled by owner Jim Yates, both dogs broke fast and to the front. Markie ran a fast animated gun dog course with 5 finds. Unfortunately the gunners were unable to shoot her first two birds and this made for a nervous handler at the third find. But Markie came through, retrieved to hand and continued with two more finds for the day. She was a fun dog to watch and obviously likes her work. Allure ran a strong shooting dog race, but unfortunately a run in with a chukar ended her day quickly. Our fourth place dog ran in the 7th brace, FC AFC Sure Shot's Cruise owned and handled by Mel Lee proved that along with age comes wisdom. Cruise, almost 11 years old, showed the youngsters how the game should be played. He ran a big going gun dog race, always looking for birds and when he scored, he handled them with grace and style. Bracemate SGR Dirty Laundry handled by owner Bill Richardson ran a shooting dog race, found birds and got a difficult retrieve to hand. Unfortunately the tough country got the best of him and he tired noticeably at the end.

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP JUDGES

MIKE MCGINNIS & MIKE KINNEY 37 STARTERS

The National Championship got underway under cloudy skies with a strong wind. The winner of the National Championship came from the first brace on Sunday morning. Ch Jay-Mar's Blakes Windczar handled by Linda Sanders and owned by J & J Collins started out like he meant

to prove something. A huge opening all age cast taking him to the left and over the hill brought him to his first find at roughly 12 minutes into the course. His style was excellent and the retrieve mannerly. Czar worked the rest of the course at a strong shooting dog pace and carded another find. He proved too tough to beat and Czar was named the '97 Champion. Our second place dog FC Flintlocks Hawk Eye, handled by Mike Hemphill put in a very nice performance with one find and a very tough blind retrieve. Hawk worked the course going to all of the places birds should be. The strong wind made the scenting conditions tough and many of the dogs only had one find. Third once again was the little white bitch Sure Shot's Justa Miss Marker, handled by owner Penny Ljungren. Markie had a stop to flush about 3/4 of the way through the course and a very tough retrieve of a wounded chukar just afterwards. She ran an intelligent gun dog course and handled easily. Fourth in this stake was Flintlock's Ezekiel

Zeke then had a nice limb find at 42 minutes into the course and finished strong. Two dogs were awarded Honerable Mentions - Sure Shot's Golly Miss Molly SH owned by Penny Ljungren and handled by Doug Ljungren. Molly was all business with two finds for her troubles.

PUPPY CLASSIC JUDGES: RICH MATZKE AND CLAY BROWN

13 starters The Puppy Classic was run on the big flat overlooking camp. The course had many natural objectives for these youngsters to go looking for birds and the pups handled the wide open spaces well. Since time demanded we run the puppy at the same time the Futurity was running, we had to playa bit of handler and brace bingo. Our thanks to all the handlers for being accomdating and also to our judges for their understanding and patience. We saw some very promising youngsters and possilbly some future Champions!

The National Field events got underway bright and early Tuesday morning with 26 Derby dogs racing across the sage covered hills. A Derby can be from 6 months old and can compete in this stake until they are two years old. With this gap in ages you are bound to see variations in the type of course layed down by the dogs. The older a dog, the more mature a run you would expect with the younger pups running like, well, younger pups. We were treated to some very fine runs and birdwork and the derbies are always a blast to handle. The cattle on course unnerved a couple of the dogs, who thought maybe they would be fun to play with and the large expanses of empty space overwhemed a few. The Derby is the place to critique breeding programs, to see what dogs are producing the qualities you are looking for and to see if you can spot the stars of the future. I believe a few stars were sighted.

MEMBERS IN THE NEWS Camp life quickly took on a daily routine. By 8:00 AM we fell into formation and after roll call we rode out of camp in a long line by two's. One of our group played the bagpipes and he would playas we rode out. I was told there was something about bag pipe music that stirred a soldier's soul and after this experience, I believe it. After receiving our rubber machine guns, Kevin Costner would explain the scene we were going to film and we would rehearse and rehearse and rehearse until the directors would find just the right action they were looking for. While we were in the practice mode, the crew would be setting up camera, lights, reflective screens and props. There were camera men, makeup people, prop men, stunt men, lighting crews, weapons people, wardrobe and the food and cleanup people. It is amazing how many folks are needed to shoot one little segment of a movie Finally they were ready to film. We were ready, the horses were ready, the crew was ready. "Lock-Up" (meaning all support people should leave the set) "Quiet on the set" - "Rolling" then "Action" and we were off at a full gallop. We were always at a full gallop. Up and out of swamps, over bluffs, and down hills. My most memorable scene was our charge into a burning town. I was positioned in the front row of riders and figured this was a good spot to be in (good camera exposure after all) and I would be one of the first riders to make it into town. Then the prop people started placing all the smoke and fire pots, and I began to realize that being in the front row may not be all that wonderful after all. By the time everything was set, flames were shooting eight feet into the air and you couldn't see the gate for the smoke. Our commander told us that it was critical that the front horses make it thorough the fire and smoke so the horses behind us would follow. If just one of the front horses balked, we would have a giant rear-end collision. This was a little more excitement than I had bargained for! "Lock-up!"- "Quiet!"- "Rolling!" and "Action!". Charge! The first line (mine remember?) made it through with some jostling, banging and lots of sideways jumping, but we all managed to stay on. We practiced this maneuver 15 times before the director was satisfied and there were no

A Ride Dn The Dark Side Doug Ljungren It is a post-apocolistic era following World War III. The developed World, including the United States, is largely in ruins. There's no fuel, travel is by horseback or foot and the survivors have banned together in small fortified villages trying to live off the land and defend themselves from bands of thieves. In this desperate world, the strongest survive and the strongest and the meanest of all were the Holnist- a survivalist army that had prepared for life after the next big war. They are in their glory, traveling the region to extort their bounty from the villagers in exchange for a peaceful existence. This is the basic setting for a move called "The Postman", a major Warner Brothers production, directed by Kevin Costner. The call had come out months earlier that riders with black horses were needed for a film being shot in Oregon and Washington. Well, I had a black horse, (Mark, my Tennessee Walker and field trial buddy) thought this might be interesting, so I signed up. After a couple of months I got the call and became a member of the Holnist Army. Everyone in this army rode black horses, wore uniforms that were orange and black with lots of leather and all looked scruffy. The movie crews referred to us as the "dark riders" and when we were charging in formation, it was an impressive sight. You could definitely tell we were the bad guys. We were provided a place to camp, given our uniforms and fed breakfast and lunch. The food tent for the big actors came complete with cooks with white pop up hats and aprons with omelet skillets at the ready. Our food tent came with warming pans full of green scrambled eggs and oatmeal and we occasionaly tried to sneak into the "big" tent for some good food.

injuries to horse or man. Unfortunately this wasn't always the case as we did have some serious injuries to the riders during filming. Our director must have known exactly what he wanted, because we never did anything just one. After a rehearsal, they would move the cameras over there, then move them over here, then change the lighting, then do it again. Many days we rode from 8:00 am to 7 PM .. After watching all of this, I concluded there was one definite requirement for being in the movies- patience. It rained hard for several days and there was no filming or rehearsals. The camp was covered with six inches of mud and became known as "Camp Run-A-Muck and with all the down time we got to know each other pretty well. This group of bad guys were an interesting lot with a variety of backgrounds, but most made their livings with something connected to horses and most had a rough outlook on life. There were packers, rodeo cowboys, blacksmiths, truck drivers, ranch hands, and many "retired" people who were somewhat vague on what they did. Several simply followed the western movies hoping to get hired. Many were very knowledgeable about the western Indian wars and we spent one afternoon listening to their stories about major battles and blunders of the Wild West. At night there were camp fires and beer. Our resident cowboy poet entertained us, while another played the fiddle or we listened to bag pipe music. One night we even had a good old fight. As the two drunks rolled around in the mud, I couldn't help but think of the country western song that talks about "the mud, the blood and the beer'. All in all it was a unique experience. I met some very interesting characters, did things with my horse that I never thought I could or would do, was able to observe the filming of a major Hollywood movie and got a brief look behind the scenes. When you watch "The Postman" pay special attention to the front row of the Holnist Army. We'll be looking pretty evil, but while I'm watching I'll be grinning, cause I know they are not as mean as they look. The Postman will be released on Christmas day, who knows maybe Doug will become a star.

Oatlands in on the National Historic Registry and ia a beautiful example of an old southern mansion with beautiful gronds. These shows are approximately 30 minutes from Dulles Airport and 45 minutes from the host hotel in Warrenton, VA. This is Virginia horse country, with rolling hills, beautiful scenery and lots to see and do. History abounds in the surrounding hillsides with many Cival War battlefields, southern mansions you can tour including Montpelier, museums and wineries. The Skyline Drive which winds thourgh the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Shenandoah National Park is minutes away and worth the drive. The National Specialty, Obedience and Sweepstakes will be held at the Phelps WMA grounds in Sumerduck, VA. and are located midway between Warrenton and Culpepper. There will be plenty of parking, electric, water and tenting for your convenience. All events will be held outdoors. Wonderful trophies, great food, southern hospitality and hundreds of German Wirehaired Pointers! We invite Wire enthusiasts from all around the US and Canada to start making plans now to join us for what we hope will be the biggest and best GWPCA Nationals ever.
