Very Old Newsletter Be sure and check out this extremely old KCRC Newsletter
  (April 1, 2007) This newsletter was found while clearing Edith Compton's belongings by her son, Mike.  We are trying to figure out the year, but guess is the late 1950's.  Will post when it can be determined.  Check out the results of the Amateur winner at the American Chesapeake trial on page 4.  Click here

The Kansas City Retriever Club is an organization devoted to the conservation of wildfowl through the training and use of all breeds of retrievers and has been serving the retriever enthusiasts in Kansas City and the surrounding area since 1954.  We are a proud member of the National Retriever Club, the National Amateur Retriever Club and the Master National Retriever Club.

The Kansas City Retriever Club is dedicated to the advancement of all retriever breeds: Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Flat Coat Retrievers, Curly Coat Retrievers, Nova Scotia Duck Tollers, Irish Water Spaniels and Standard Poodles.

The Kansas City Retriever Club boasts over 60 members strong that include professional men and women, retired folks, home-makers, waterfowl hunters, upland game hunters, professional dog trainers, breeders, hunting guides, pet groomers and those that just have an interest in conservation by using trained retrievers.

Our club sponsors two AKC licensed field trials a year, two AKC licensed hunt tests a year, super singles event where each dog retrieves only single marks and several training sessions.  We are looking forward to adding some more activities starting in 2017.  Be sure and check back and see what we have planned.

We hold three general membership meetings a year.  There is one in February or March that will be announced as soon as the location is determined. The one in July is a BBQ cook-out, general meeting and where we have various fun outdoor activities.  The one in December is a celebration dinner, general meeting, yearly club award winners are announced, "Member of the Year" and "Rookie of the Year" awards are announced, if given out for the year, yearly significant accomplishment certificates are given, and where the new officers and board are voted on.

If you have any questions regarding Club activities, questions about joining the Kansas City Retriever Club or looking for training groups in your area, please email your questions to questions@kcrc.net and a board member will get back with you as quick as possible with an answer.
