The Black Warrior Retriever Club (BWRC) of Alabama has been selected to host the Master National Retriever Club's 2012 Master National event. This prestigious annual retriever hunt test event showcases the best hunting retrievers in North America.
BWRC partnered with the State Lands Division of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) and the Chamber of Commerce of Demopolis to secure local support and the test grounds of Forever Wild’s Field Trial Area, which was recently renamed by the Forever Wild Board of Trustees in recognition of the Conservation Department’s former Commissioner M. Barnett Lawley, and the vision he had for supporting this project.
Forever Wild’s field trial grounds are located at the former State Cattle Ranch, which is south of Greensboro in Hale County. The event will be held in the fall of 2012. The competitions are expected to have up to 500 retrievers entered.
