2019 BSS Upland National

 2019 Boykin Spaniel Society Upland Nationals to be held in Ayden, NC January 19-20, 2019.

The Upland National Championship is being held this winter at Shadow Creek Farm in Ayden NC.  Ayden is located about 15 minutes south of Greenville NC.  This event is the only one of its kind that allows Boykins to compete in an organized flushing field trial.  This year the Society is sponsoring three stakes for Novice, Intermediate and Open dogs.  The Novice stake will continue with its program of running all dogs over two days.  This allows all competitors to show their dogs over the longest period of time.  The current rules are on the web site and can be downloaded at your convenience and entry forms will be posted there soon.

If you are not interested in competition, you are welcome to come out and see all the dogs and join in the side fun.   This year we will again be offering a side event called The Crazy Quail Shootout. It is a land version of our spring Duck Dog Shootout.  You and your dog will be challenged to bring down three quail and retrieve them with the fewest shells in as short a time as possible.  Sign up will be at the event, so bring your guns and shells. As usual there will be lunch catered every day.  You will be welcomed to a once a year sight of brown dogs, blaze orange and friendship.
