Hello Palmetto Chapter,
We have a busy month ahead of us! We have mock test/training this weekend and the spring test is March 27/28.
This Saturday morning (13th) we will have our NA Mock test starting at 7am in the “A” Field. After lunch Saturday we will then have general training and same with Sunday morning. Please go to the store to purchase your NA Mock test if you intend to run the Mock test this weekend.
The test is March 27/28, if you have a puppy and have not seen a test we do recommend that you come out to observe so you know what your are working towards. We also still have volunteer opportunities if you can lend a helping hand, just send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know you are interested. After the test scores are read Saturday and before dinner we will have a chapter meeting. Financials will be reviewed along with voting for the BOD for 2021. If interested in nominating someone to the BOD for 2021 please send us an email. Our current secretary Chad Bumb has stepped down, we have one nomination for chapter secretary -Jim Howell. We thank Chad for all the years, and especially the time he has dedicated to NAVHDA, he will be missed in that role, but we will see him at QHF! (Chad reports nice road improvements at QHF also!)

Test weekends are always busy weekends! Please look forward to more test updates along with the store will be updated soon to purchase meals.
We are excited that our Palmetto Chapter member David Wisehaupt will be cooking us dinner Saturday night! If it is as good as his homemade wine that he makes with his bride we are in for a major treat! (no pressure David!)
Looking forward to some good memories this month and look forward to seeing all of our dogs enjoy their hunts!
