EVENT #1: Veteran Stakes
Dogs do not have to have passed in AKC or GRCA or other field events. Each Veteran Division will have 1st- 4th placements. Each Veteran will have back-to-back singles on land and on water if weather permits. Distances will be short, probably no more than 50 yards. Dogs do not need to be steady. A leash or flat-buckle collar may be used to steady the dog. Delivery to hand is not required, but the dog must return to the area designated by the judges. A dog may be cast a second time, but this will result in a lower score. The handler may encourage the dog to hunt.

Bumpers will be used for all retrieves
Judges: Darlene Tucker and Barbara Davis
