2015 NBHA Midwest Regional Championship

Posted on : Monday December 28 2015

The 2015 NBHA Midwest Regional Championship sponsored by the Missouri Bird Hunters Association concluded on Dec. 6,2015 at the Greenwood Pointe Hunt Club in New Franklin, MO. The trial, hosted by the Missouri Bird Hunters Association, drew a good entry of 27 Shooting Dogs, 6 Derbies and 6 Puppies. Named Champion was Blackhawk's Flight Risk, Pointer male owned by Marty Meyers Blue Springs, MO and handled by Harold Gearhart, Kingsville, MO. Runner up went to Rebellious Rotten Ralph, English Setter male owned and handled by Mike Luebke, from Reeseville, WI. Whenever you schedule a trial in central Missouri in Dec., you always worry about the weather. On all 3 days the weather was great; mid 30's in the morning and low 50's in the afternoon; with plenty of sunshine. Anytime you put on a trial you need to have good grounds, good birds and good judges. You also have to have a lot of good help and I had some outstanding help. I would like to thank Joe Zimmer, Chris Gebhardt, Danny Martin, Danny Draffen, Dan Crunk, Kevin Western, Tim Penn and Jim Wirths for all their help.
