2018 GSPCA election

South Central Director: Will Barbee

For those of you who do not know me my name is Will Barbee. I am a GSPCA Member
and I am seeking your vote for the South Central Director position on the GSPCA Board
for the upcoming term.

I have been an active member with my local Lone Star GSP Club in Dallas, Texas since the early 90‘s. I have been Vice President, De-Snaking Chairman, Field trial Chairman, Hunt Test Chairman, and currently am sitting on the Board of Directors, as well as being the President of the NGSPA Quail Championship for the past 8 years. My passion is Bird Dogs and have finished 8 FieldChampions/Amateur Field Champions, have had a dog finish the 2015 year in the top 10 Open Limited Gun Dog, as well as having 3 different dogs with NGSPA Championship wins.I have competed in AKC Field Trials as well as NGSPA Regional Championships around the country and have had the pleasure of meeting and becoming friends with several GSPCA members and other members of various AKC breed clubs from around the country. I have been asked to judge many AKC Trials and NGSPA Regional Championships around the country, but have also had the honor to have judged the NGSPA National Amateur Championship, the VCA Nationals and am going to be judging the upcoming WCA Nationals in December.I have had the opportunity of enjoying so many great dogs and people through out my years in the field and if I haven’t met you along the way I look forward to meeting you down the road.

I have to admit that I do not have a lot of background in the other arenas outside of the field other than my background over the past 25 years of local GSP club issues. In fact when I was asked to run as the South Central Director I was told that the GSPCA Board needed some balance from someone with field background and who was involved in field trials in order to have a voice from the field perspective. I feel that I can contribute to the board by exhibiting reasonable, sound judgment, with well grounded and prudent input on all issues. I have learned a great deal of all aspects of our club as possible up to now and want to continue to be as productive with in the GSPCA as possible so that all of the different arenas of our club can continue to rise to the top of each and every committee,event, regional, national, or local by allowing them to run their events to the best of their abilities with the board being there to help each event succeed any way that they can contributing with knowledge, assistance,guidance, with an extra set of eyes for approvals. I believe that there will always be differences of opinion along the way but the foremost thing should Always be to follow the GSPCA Constitution and By Laws. I look forward to serving the members of the GSPCA and with your support I believe we have one of the Best Clubs that tries to bring the standard of both the field and ring to the front of Class. Thanks for your time and consideration in voting for me.
