Points standings

The Oklahoma and Texas Dog of the Year Point Standings have been updated!

Donations still being accepted

The Lake Murray Field Trial Grounds Committee Chairpersons Linda and Tom Milam are spearheading efforts for a substantial brush / trees clearing effort before the beginning of the 2010 fall season.  A contractor to provide equipment and labor has been chosen, and work began this week.

The length of time the contractor can provide this service depends on funding for material cost, primarily diesel fuel.

Donations for this effort are being solicited and will be very much appreciated from individuals, clubs, organizations, and businesses.  The Lake Murray Conservation Association, Inc. is considered a 501C3 association eligible for tax deduction.  Bobbi Howse will issue a receipt and mail it to the donor.   Checks may be made to Lake Murray Conservation Association, Inc. and submitted to Bobbi at the below address:
