See ya in the field!!! Harry Williams, IC Chairman
In 1950 a group from Kitsap and the north portion of Mason County wanted to find an area to gather, train their retrievers for hunting and also to run trials. They formed Puget Sound Retriever Club and acquired use of properties near Belfair. The land was owned by Sam and Mary Theler and commonly referred to as the Belfair Flats. It was adjacent to The Hood Canal within the estuary of the Union River. The club held twice annually licensed retriever trials. The club also gained access via a lease to properties on the Tahuya Peninsula and the late summer trial was held there. Eventually urban sprawl caused the use of the “Flats” to end. It is now known as The Theler Wetlands.
In 1989 PSRC started also doing an annual Field Test Licensed by the North American Hunting Retriever Club. The NAHRA test was held on the club’s grounds which are leased from two different Timber Companies.
Thanks to the generosity of club members, we have access to equipment which allows the grooming of the fields for training and testing.
