Northern Chapter Trailing Camp


The BWNC will be holding our second trailing camp of the year on April 8 & 9 in the Sacramento area.  Our base camp location will be at Gibson Ranch, 8556 Gibson Ranch Rd, Elverta, CA 95626 (www.gibsonranchpark.com).  

The fee for the camp is $35/dog for one day or $50/dog for both days.  All fees will be used to support our Trailing Trial in the fall.  Gibson Ranch charges a per car facility parking fee of $5 each day.  There are restroom facilities on the premises. 

EEC tests can be offered on Sunday if any are interested in taking the test.  Please let us know as soon as possible if you plan to take the test on Sunday.  You will need your dog's AKC registration number for the EEC test form.  There is a $10 fee for the EECT, payable to the American Bloodhound Club.

The camp is rain or shine.  The current forecast is for dry weather that weekend, but keep an eye on weather reports for changes.  I plan to have the club pop up tents there for sun/rain protection.  Bring your camp chairs for seating.  Lunch is not provided, so you will need to bring a lunch or go to a local fast food joint as desired.

Several people have asked about hotels in the area.  There are a fair number of hotels relatively close to Gibson Ranch.  Here are 3 that I am pretty sure always allow dogs.  I did not check with other hotels/motels in the area.  You will want to verify that dogs are allowed, when you book reservations.
