I hope everyone is having a great summer so far. Just a reminder that the HVGSPC meeting is fast approaching. Frank Cavalieri and family have graciously offered to host the meeting at their place. The location of the meeting is 571 County Hwy 36A, Schenevus, NY 12155. Since Frank is fairly far away from most of the members, we have come up with the following plan. In addition to the meeting we are having a club fun overnight training/campout the weekend of August 23-24. The weekend is for club members and anyone who might be interested in joining the club. Anyone who wishes can camp on the grounds free. There is plenty of room. Frank’s place is next to Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park. You can rent a beautiful, fully furnished, log cabin that sleeps 8 people for $150 a night if a group should wish to do so. Frank also has lodging at his place for a few people, just no dogs inside. If anyone wanted to rent lodging at Frank’s place it would cost $25 per person a night. There are also lots of hotels in Cooperstown which is 15 minutes away. That way we can train with regular bird work and train for the water test. Birds will be available for purchase. $6 for quail, $9 for chukar, and $? (unknown at this time) for ducks or BYOB (Bring Your Own Birds). Also we will have the Club picnic and meeting. Cooperstown is also nearby for those who might wish to sight see and shop. This way people have the weekend to do whatever they want and no one would have to drive back and forth in one day if they didn't want to.
Come one come all for a fun weekend. Time is running out if you would like Frank to get you some birds for use during the weekend. Please let Frank know ASAP if you want birds for either day or if you wish to rent a room. Do not forget to bring one or more potential new club members.
