Jamie and Casey, Rick and Molly were fortunate enough to qualify for the NSTRA National Trials this year consisting of the Owens Trial the first week in June 2010, the Endurance Trial the first week of September 2010 and the Dog of the Year October 28th 2010. Entry is based on points earned in the MOKAN Region the year prior and placement at the Regional Elimination Trial each April.
Casey needs one more first place to finish her 1X championship. Molly is a 1X champion with 8 first places and needs 3 points to finish out her 2X championship.

Read this posting from the Yahoo group dualbrittanys on the latest Brittany to
receive a Dual Championship.
Pending AKC approval, Timberline Strait to the Point, JH (FC Making R-Point x
Rainbow's Bijou Belle) became a Dual Champion at just over 5 years old,
finishing in the show with a 5 point major Best of Winners win at the Central
New Mexico specialty on Friday, November 5th.
Sawyer finished his FC at 3.5 years old, competing mostly at all breed stakes.
I've been running him in amateur gun dog stakes in the last couple years as well
and have 3 brittany majors on him as well, only needing 1 point to get that
title! I've shown him sparingly throughout his field career, mostly because of
his sheep-shear hair cut he sported for so long. This spring, I decided it was
time to stop the close cuts and start growing it out and go for his dual.
Sawyer comes from a long line of dual champions. His grandfather, DC Sunnyvale
Point of Interest, JH, is one of very few 8th generation dual champions. Sawyer
could've been a 10th generation dual, except his father, FC Making R-Point, was
a hair (or two) above the wicket. Dylan did win the dual dog award at the
Western Futurity in 1997 though!
Many thanks to all that have helped us along through his career, including but
not limited to Ben Garcia of Hideaway Kennels for the field training and
handling, Jerry and Kathy Hogan for believing in my Dylan and breeding their dog
Lucy to him, and to my mom and step dad, Jack and Tracy Haines, for hauling my
horse around, the support, constructive criticism, and so much more.
Phil Marriott, Stover, Mo. MOBC member and his dog CHESTER DARK TRAVELER claimed 2nd place in the 40 dog Bird Dog Challenge NATIONALS held in Iowa in March 2010.
