As handlers/owners enter their dogs for the 2017 Master National Retriever Hunting Test at The BigWoods on the Trinity in Tennessee Colony, Texas, please remember the MNRC Foundation offers three awards for handlers; each award consists of a personal plaque, the recipient’s name on a perpetual plaque and a check for $1,000.
The awards are“Youth Handler of the Year” for 8-12 year olds; “Youth Handler of the Year” for 13-17 year olds and the “Bill T. Teague Handler of the Year Award” for the adult.
Nominations for these awards must be submitted within 30 days of the completion of the event and criteria for each award are found on the MNRC website. Regretfully, there have been no nominations for either of the Youth Handler of the award since the inception of awards in 2015. The first recipient of “Bill T. Teague Handler of the Year” award in 2015 was Ken Vidrine, Opelousas, Louisiana and last year’s recipient was Bill Autrey, Bentley, Louisiana.
For further information, please contact any member of the MNRCF Board of Directors; Gloria Mundell, John Blackbird, Jimmy Hughes, Larry Kimble or Bill Teague.
