We are in the midst of final details in putting together the 2011 Armbruster, that the BRC is hosting in Shreveport Louisiana. It is
an exciting time for our chapter and could not be done without lots of volunteer help. We anticipate an exciting test, wonderful social
time and a very enjoyable conclusion to a great deal of work. It’s a great celebration for the Deutsch-Drahthaar breed and GNA
members in North America . We are proud be hosting this year’s event.
Additionally, we are preparing for our fall tests and scheduling spring tests for 2012. Please check the BRC website for schedule
postings. While it’s important to finish out our testing season, I’m really looking forward to enjoying the fall hunting season. This is
the payoff we all look forward to with our DDs.
In closing, Id like to again say thanks to Cal Bambrough, our Test Director and the rest of the Armbruster Committee. We all
owe them a lot for their sacrifice and generous CAN DO attitude. I would like to particularly thank John Odom, as my co-test
coordinator for the Armbruster, because he continually rose above and beyond the call of duty to make this event happen. In addition
to the rest of the committee, Dan Brown, Zane Brown, Kevin Sherrodd, Chad Crissup and Jim Wion, many thanks from
the bottom of my heart for your hard work and sacrifice. This event is special to me because of our friendships and how well
you represent the Big Rivers Chapter. We are indebted to you all.
Happy hunting season.
Big Rivers Chapter Chairman
