I see the Mi. Amature Field Trial Club is hosting this here in Mi. this fall how due you qualify? Is it from last falls, this springs, and summer placements? Also is it for shooting dog, derby and puppy?
The National amt is a shooting dog stake and to qualify a dog must possess an amateur win certificate from either an amt derby or amt shooting dog stake or a dual qualifying stake such as the run in Gladwin in August that is an open stake but no prize money is involved . I believe that the MAFTC is running a separate Derby and puppy stake in conjunction with the Nat amt. I believe Bobby would be able to verify this.
Thanks Mike am I going to run in to you training where I ran in to hunting? I believe the Forman Brothers may come up and run that area also before the fall trials. I got a new DunRoven/ShadyHills Billy pup that just punched out a screen window trying to get a moth you will see a lot of up there I hope.
Section 6. To qualify for a National Amateur Grouse Championship or an International
Amateur Woodcock Championship a dog shall have won a place, under an amateur handler, in a
shooting dog stake, or a derby stake, or an all-age stake held by an active member of this
Corporation, in accordance with its Regulations.
Section 11. To qualify to enter the National Amateur Championship Stakes, the handler shall
have previously won a placement in an AFTCA trial and hold a certificate for that placement.
Additionally, a dog or handler can receive an Amateur Certificate with a Placement in an Open Trial if the cash purse in that Open Trial is turned down (or turned in). The Club sponsoring that trial will then contact the AFTCA with the appropriate info and a certificate for an Amateur Placement will be awarded. This happens often, or often enough.
There are different requirements for the different Championships, pheasant, quail, etc.
