Entry / Reservation Form

Deadline for reservations with out group rate at our host hotel, the Quality Inn in Chillicothe, OH is March 9, 2021. Deadline for your entry is March 5th. Location for the event is Holly Hills Game Preserve, near Chillicothe.

  • Because of Covid concerns, the Quality Inn’s complimentary breakfast is a selection of pre-packaged breakfast foods, such as sandwiches to microwave, muffins, cereals. If you’re not happy with that, there are fast-food restaurants such as McDonalds nearby for you to pick something up.
  • We’re asking our attendees please NOT to bring doughnuts, coffeecakes or goodies to share with the group. Sadly, a buffet of unwrapped foods not a good idea in these times.
  • Because of Covid concerns,instead of the usual hot lunch buffet at Holly Hills, Marcia Hatfield will be doing up individual sack lunches consisting of a wrapped sandwich, chips, cookies and condiments. You must pre-order your sack lunches on the entry/reservation form, since Marcia will make only as many as ordered (no leftovers for last-minute deciders). If you’d like something else, plan on bringing your own lunch.
  • In spite of Covid concerns, we’re planning on having a great time with our Airedales. Check out the reservation form for full details.

A site search for all AKC Hunt Tests can be found HERE.   Since Airedales may only run in in AKC Spaniel and Retriever tests, you should ignore the Pointer tests (unless you want to go as an observer). Clicking on the name of each club offering the test will tell you what kind of test is offered.
