The Master National Retriever Club Foundation is pleased to announce the recipient of the 2015 Handler of the Year Award.

Ken Vidrine successfully met the criteria for the first annual Bill T. Teague Handler of the Year Award and was presented with his plaque and check on March 17, 2016 at the regular meeting of the Lake Charles Retriever Club in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Vidrine was nominated by his son Chad. He was cited for his ability to overcome injuries and knee replacement surgery and continue his training of his dog, Ruby. Ruby earned her Master Hunter title from the American Kennel Club in May of 2014 and then qualified to enter the Master National Retriever Hunting test in Cheraw. Vidrine was noted for his ‘can do’ attitude, his hard work ethics and his love for dogs and the retriever sport. Under his handling abilities, Ruby received her Master National plate signifying she’d successfully qualified at the 2015 MNRHT.

The Foundation also offers two ‘Youth Handler of the Year Awards’; one for 12 year and younger and one for 13-17 year old handlers. No submissions were received for these awards this year.

For further information on the awards, contact Bill Teague at ta9@hughes.net or 713-252-3918 or 734 CR 630, Nacogdoches, Texas 75964.
