Welcome to the Port Arthur Retriever Club !
Thanks to all the PARC members who helped with the Spring Hunt Test.
We could not do it without YOU!
Check "Club News" to see names of our newest members and a couple of photos from the hunt test. If you have photos you would like to share email them to email@example.com with a description and we will add them.
Established in 1950 as a field trial club, the Port Arthur Retriever Club has become a group of retriever owners, who hunt and live in the Beaumont-Port Arthur area. Areas of interest for our members include obedience, hunt tests, field trials and of course hunting. We continue to work together in an effort to improve our own abilities and those of our dogs while having fun at the same time.
For more about the history of PARC see the "History" section of this website. Click the link below to read an interesting article about Lee and Marjorie Broussard who help get the club started 63 years ago.
Each year the club is proud to hold two AKC sanctioned field trials, one derby/qualifying event and two AKC licensed hunt tests.
We are now able to offer three seperate areas for training and testing with some of the most challenging technical water available in the area. Our club continues to work in providing one of the premier testing/training facilities on the Gulf Coast. Our sincere thanks goes out to David Mosher of Sugarfoot kennels who winters on this ranch, for his assistance in the continuing land improvements.
We welcome all newcomers to the sport, and encourage all retriever owners to spend the necessary time to train their dog to be the best that they can be. Our annual dues are only $50 which gives you access to our wonderful training grounds year around!! Click on the link below to download and print a membership application. Mail the application to Norin Borke, 1272 Yorkshire Drive, Beaumont, TX 77713, or email firstname.lastname@example.org or bring it with you to the next meeting.
