Rule Changes:

In the Upland Nationals, the Judges of the Open stake will have the option of running dogs in “ brace “

In the Retriever Nationals the Open Distances will be aligned with those used in the HRC program. Water 125 yards, Land 150 yards and Blinds 100 yards.

In the Upland Hunt tests and Field Trials the use of Higgins style release boxes will be allowed.  The Release Boxes MUST be thoroughly brushed in so as to be undetectable by the dogs.

Here is a good explanation of Running Upland Flushing dogs in a brace from our friends at the English Springer Spaniel Field Trial Association. https://essfta.org/english-springers/versatility/introduction-to-spaniel-field-trials/?fbclid=IwAR1SJe7Rn91ibgsrm9tjhmiN1s6TuI750uf74CSLOCFNhcA1nhv8tPmOPkI
