Gentleman, Has the possibility of getting local HS or Middle School children involved in the sport by letting them form team and compete as such against other schools. They could be sponsored by a club or just older more experienced trailers. They perform work equity in setting up trial grounds, kennel work etc. in exchange for being able to run in trials and learn how to train and run dogs. If children are our future lets get them started early. I could see a time when there could be state championships. Even some colleges have rodeo and equestrian teams. Why not field trial teams. Just a thought. Thank you for your time.
