I must be one of those really odd people
that if something doesn't exist where I am, I tend to try to be a driving force to create it (as opposed to waiting around for someone else to do it).
I have been looking around my area for about 6-9 months for a club in which I could learn, train with, and maybe even sponsor events for my new GSD puppy. Well, I picked up my pup last weekend, but thus far, the nearest thing I've found is a professional training facility about 75 miles away.
Yeah, yeah - I know. Some of you drive much further than that. Maybe I got spoiled because for the last 25 years I raised and trained retrievers and you couldn't spit without hitting a local club in my area (in that same 75 mile radius there are EIGHT
retriever clubs, and that's just counting the performance-only ones).
Anyway, I digressed. I want to start a club here in my hometown of Bryan/College Station, TX for people interested in working toward IPO or similar events for GSDs, BMs, etc.
Anyone done something similar? Advice?
