IMPORTANT NATIONAL 2020 ANNOUNCEMENT
Okay, some of you have already been bugging me about this. I've promised you a date, and I have one. Not only that, but I have dates for 2020 and 2021. Not only THAT, but I have a location!
The 2020 and 2021 Barn Hunt Nationals will take place at the Ozarks Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield, MO. Ozarks Mischief Barn Hunt Club, aided by friends and other clubs to-be-named, will host. They will probably host 2022 as well, but I do not yet have a firm 2022 date. We will be in the Corwin Arena and Annex.
Springfield is just off of I-44, what used to be Route 66. There are many iconic buildings left from that time. It is also the home of Bass Pro. The Fairgrounds is right next to the Dickerson Zoo. There are multiple hotels and restaurants within a few miles. There are many lovely parks. There are 95 campsites on the grounds, some full hookup, some with water and electric. (note, the time of year of the National water may not be available but they will do water fills). Food on site.
Barn Hunt will be in the main, heated indoor dirt-floored arena. We will also have the annex, a heated adjacent area with concrete floors perfect for crating. All rings and hurdles will be indoors.
More information will come at a later date, but I wanted to get the dates on your calendar now.
October 29-31, 2021 (yes, HALLOWEEN!!)
2022 dates tentatively first weekend in November, but TBD
