|Heading out to find birds!
In the heat of summer, no one thinks about running dogs, but when the cool mornings hit, it's on every one's mind. We get together in September to run the dogs a little, catch up and get mentally ready for the trial year. Our "Ironman" started way back in 2000 as a way to have fun and spend the day gossiping about bird hunting and trialing and giving new dogs a little taste of trial life. The events are finding birds, pistol shooting, rifle shooting, skeet fishing and horseshoes. It takes pretty much all day with 20 to 30 contestants. Then we have a nice dinner with cooked quail and all the fixin's, thanks to Jimmy Johnson! What a wonderful way to get the year started!!
