NAVHDA Family Weekend at Blackwater Creek Ranch
JUNE 8th-9th, 2019


Hi NAVHDA family,

I want to thank you all for your support this year! 2019 has been a very active year for us; our success is all because of you, our members that not just participate but jump in to help each other in our journey to get our dogs to be the best they can be. Everyone can and has a part to play in the success of our chapter.

I want to extend a special thank you to Chad for organizing one of our most exciting events our chapter hosts annually! Organizing our annual family fundraising event is time consuming and requires a lot of work. Please, as you have fun at Blackwater please give Chad Bumb a big THANK YOU! I know we are blessed to have such a fun, exciting event and even though I can’t judge all the other chapters I doubt any have as much fun and as many exciting family events for their fundraisers as we do!

We thank all the volunteers and look forward to another year of success!

Please contact me if you are a novice or never have gunned and would like to start at Blackwater or gain more experience. We will be offering instruction. My email is:

Beyond Blackwater

As we continue to grow and our needs expand, we are organizing our gunners. Successful chapters have an active gunning team. If you are interested in being part of the Palmetto’s gunning team and gun at our sanctioned tests and/or our monthly trainings please email me so you can become part of our team.  Our gunning team will be organized by our gunning committee. Our gunning committee has been mentored over the last few months by a lifelong NAVHDA member Don Bayles that has gunned longer than I have been alive and has had the honor of gunning at several NAVHDA invitational –our organization’s most honored event. So, if you want to be a part of our Palmetto gunning team as your part to play, please email me @ to get involved.

Thank you and don’t forget to register for our Blackwater event, purchase your meals and Birds.   It is important we have a count of children attending as we have events and goodies we need to plan for.
