I believe branch hollow nailed it, if you have a phone number to one of the older members ask him for sure what it means. Just for confirmation?
I like that your son wants to do everything with the club, you both will learn a lot about beagles and trials. One thing though, do not take the trials personally, if your dog does well, be humble, if it gets picked up, its all about the new learning curve.
Good luck on the new endeavor. Get your son out shooting skeet or trap so when hunting season arrives you both will be ready. My family, Lori, Ryan, Taylor and I would shoot Sunday afternoons at our neighbors home, a lot of missing and laughing, but come hunting season for us, Pheasant, duck , goose, partridge, cottontail and Hare hunting we were ready. JMHO 🐶 🐶 🐇

He's a shooter...lol killed his first buck at age 8, and has gotten one every year since , plus does.I think he's killed 18 so far. His brothers want to wear the shoes he stepped in the lucky " sh*t " when they go...lol.He's shot squirrels, doves , ect. I got back into beagles to get him into what I grew up with, never thinking he'd take to it the way he has. I'm learning as much as he is with belonging to a club. When I was growing up, if it chased rabbits, not deer, you had a star...lol
I think he understands how the trials work, they had him Marshall- plus ( get really involved ) at our last trial. I think he just wants to have a dog involved...me, I like fried rabbit..lol

PBGF Means: Pennsylvania Beagle Gundog Federation, A Federation is like the governing body of Associations. Associations are a group of Clubs or groups of people making up a Federation.


IBGA means Iroquois Beagle Gundog Association,

Since this is advertised as a derby qualifying trial, it means that the dog has to place in one of this Federation or Association club trials to be able to run in the Derby Championship Trial.

BEST OF LUCK!!! I surely appreciate your interest and your children's interest in this fine sport of Beagling. They are the future to this SPORT if it is going to continue to exist for YEARS to come.

Hope this makes it a little clearer. I still get confused of the difference at times LOL!!!

Sounds like he’s going down the right path you have paved for him. Your son should think about being a AKC license judge, Not sure of the age to take the seminar, the both of you supporting each other will be another good bond of the family. The fried rabbit is another plus. JMHO
