AKC Hunt Test Advisory Committee Update

The American Kennel Club Hunt Test Advisory Committee is pleased to announce two new appointments to its group.  Carol Hynes and Dave Coffey have agreed to serve in this volunteer position.

Carol Hynes will represent the Central Time Zone and Dave Coffey the Mountain Time Zone Representatives to the Retriever Hunt Test Advisory are appointed for the terms noted below.

Both appointees met all the criteria for the position which included being an 8 point Master judge, in good standing with the AKC, an ‘active’ judge (judged recently), qualified multiple dogs at master level and is active in local retriever club(s). Additionally, each is familiar with the AKC Regulations for Retriever Hunting Tests, has the ‘big picture’ of the program and has proven they can interact with people successfully.

We take this opportunity to thank Keith Winch as he completes his term for his stellar performance in the Mountain Time Zone and Patty Polish and Keith Maready for their continued service. We are pleased Carol and Dave have agreed to serve in this volunteer position and look forward to working with them. If you have any questions, please let me know.

It is the responsibility of the RHT Advisory Committee to provide input to the AKC Performance Events Department with regard to the Retriever Hunting Test Regulations. This may involve clarification of existing Regulations or new Regulations that are felt to enhance the sport. Topics for Advisory Committee discussion may originate from RHT participants or from the Committee members themselves. The Performance Events Department may also direct ideas to the Committee for consideration.
