Plymouth, IN VJP Test Results (March 25 & 26, 2023)

The Great Lakes Chapter held our second VJP (Puppy Test) at The St. Joseph Valley Beagle Club in Plymouth, IN.

Huge thanks to Test Director Dan Carlisle and Test Coordinator Jim Husband.

Our in-Chapter judges for the weekend were Jim Jones and Dan Carlisle. Our out--of-Chapter judge was Randall Pearson from Hopewell, VA. Apprentice judge Steven Rogers participated on Saturday and apprentice judge Will Good participated on Sunday. 

It was great to see so many GLC members show up to help set birds for pointing work and of course help beat for rabbits on both days. All dogs completed the test and we had some very nice scores. The weather on Saturday afternoon was pretty brutal with high winds and driving sleet but Sunday was beautiful. Both days had excellent rabbit opportunities and good pointing work. 

The St. Joseph Valley Beagle Club continues to be a wonderful test and training ground for our Chapter with excellent accommodations in the clubhouse. It has a reliable population of rabbits and long, mowed trails for good open tracks to judge. Thank you to Roger and the Beagle Club for allowing us to use the facilities.
