Region 6 and Mid-South Awards 2020

On Saturday, June 13th we were able to meet at the National Bird Dog Museum to hold our annual Mid-South and Region 6 meeting and Awards Ceremony. We honored the Dog of the Year winners and their owners. Each of these dogs had multiple placements with outstanding performances throughout the 2019 -2020 field trial season, Mr. Guy Hendrix was awarded the Sportsman of the Year award for his service in providing grounds and hosting many field trials on his farm. He has been a great friend to the field trial community for many years. We also celebrated Michael Shears 30 years of service (1990 – 2020) as a Trustee. His dedication and service to the AFTCA and Region 6 are greatly appreciated. Photos and editing credits to Amy Spencer of Cocklebur Farms
