Due to the current COVID-19 situation the April 6th PARC meeting is cancelled.
Check back here for update regarding the May 4th meeting.
Former PARC President Wayne Stupka was presented with a "Lifetime Membership" at the March 2nd meeting by current V.P. Kevin Bellard.
When asked how long he'd been a member, Wayne said "I was a bird boy for the club back in the 60's". Wayne is certainly a long time member and has given generously not only of his time, but he also has been of financial assistance beyond expectations.
Wayne has served many roles in the PARC and is primarly active in Field Trials. He will be the Marshall for the National Retriever Champonship to be held in Giddings, Texas Nov 7-14, 2020.
Congrats to Wayne, and thank you for all your years of PARC support.
Established in 1950 as a field trial club, the Port Arthur Retriever Club has become a group of retriever owners, who hunt and live in the Beaumont-Port Arthur area. Areas of interest for our members include obedience, hunt tests, field trials and of course hunting. We continue to work together in an effort to improve our own abilities and those of our dogs while having fun at the same time.
Each year the club is proud to hold two AKC sanctioned field trials, one derby/qualifying event and two AKC licensed hunt tests.
We are now able to offer three seperate areas for training and testing with some of the most challenging technical water available in the area. Our club continues to work in providing one of the premier testing/training facilities on the Gulf Coast. .
We welcome all newcomes to the sport and encourage all retriever owners to spend the necessary time to train their dog and be the best that they can be.
Our annual dues are only $50 which gives you access to our wonderful training grounds all year long.
