AFTCA, Frank LaNasa


AFTCA New Website Launch

AFTCA_New Website

We are pleased to announce that the Amateur Field Trial Clubs of America will launch a completely upgraded website at www.aftca.org in early August.

The launch will highlight an on-going project that is automating many of the AFTCA’s office tasks. The new office software will seamlessly interact with the new website, providing a powerful tool for member clubs and amateur field trialers all across the AFTCA regions.

The website boasts a comprehensive dog win display and the ability for field trial chairpersons or secretaries to input not only the essential data (names of winners and their placements) from their recently completed field trials but for website members to manage the data on their own dogs, including online win certificates.

With the launch of Version 1 we recognize that the AFTCA website is an ongoing project and will be expanded to meet the needs and ideas of the membership.

The AFTCA would like to give a special “thank you” to Betty Shearouse of Chattanooga, Tenn. A successful amateur trialer, Betty’s invaluable contributions came at the expense of a great deal of her personal time over the past year. Her effort went way beyond the term “volunteer”.

Also a thank you to Chris Mathan at the Sportsman’s Cabinet/Strideaway for generous contribution of her beautiful photography used throughout the website.

ABOUT STRIDEAWAY

Strideaway is an online publication founded in 2008. We are dedicated to promoting the great sport of American pointing dog field trials, in particular American Field sanctioned trials for pointers and setters. Our objective is to present the voices and ideas of experienced trainers, handlers, breeders and other knowledgeable participants and enthusiasts from the past to the present � amateurs and professionals alike. Whether All-Age or Shooting Dog, Horseback or Walking Trials, we place particular emphasis on wild bird field trials and the dogs that compete in them. We present richly illustrated articles and stories, podcast interviews and other types of media on a regular basis with the hope of providing an ever expanding, searchable archive of information relevant to pointing dog field trials.Read article

This website is dedicated to our ever faithful friend and Strideaway contributor, Bill Allen, whose book The Unforgettables and Other True Fables we published in 2010.
