AFTCA, Frank LaNasa

AFTCA New Website Launch

We are pleased to announce that the Amateur Field Trial Clubs of America will launch a completely new website at in early March.

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 database 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 this launch, we recognize that the AFTCA website is an ongoing project and will be expanded to meet the needs and of the membership.



Running Dog


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, Bill Allen who passed away peacefully and surrounded by his loving family on January 25, 2022 at the age of 96. We will miss him but he left us the greatest of gifts, his wonderful writings in a book we published for the 3rd time in 2021: The Unforgettables and Other True Fables.
