2022 GSPCA election

David VogelsangSouth Central Director: David Vogelsang [email David]

To introduce myself to those of you who do not know me, I am David C Vogelsang.
I am a long time German Shorthaired Pointer Club of America member. I am running for the South Central Regional Directors position on the GSPCA Board of Directors for the 2022 term. I am asking for your support.

I am an active member of my local German Shorthaired Pointer club. My involvement began in 1985 with the Gulf Coast GCPC in Houston. I have been a member of the Lone Star GSPC since 1986.

I have served in the capacity of President, Vice President, Treasurer and I currently serve on our Board of Directors.  I have been the Chairman of many Field Trials, Hunt Tests, and Snake Avoidance Clinics. In 2006 I was honored with a lifetime membership.  I have also served on the NGSPA Quail Championship Committee.

My passion for hunting dogs began at an early age. When I was 5 years old I started rabbit hunting with my father and our beagles. I was introduced to the German Shorthaired Pointer in 1984. With the last name of Vogelsang (Birdsong in German) it was only fitting to choose this breed of bird dog.

I have campaigned all of my dogs to different extents in field trials. I have achieved numerous wins and placements as well as a number of hunt test titles. I had the pleasure of co-owning the 2005 NAFC/FC/AFC champion Vogelsang’s Toby Von Blitz. Toby was a 5 time American Field Champion, and a ten time Runner Up Champion.  This adventure and success took my passion to another level in competition, commitment, and dedication to the outstanding bird dog breed, the German Shorthaired  Pointer.

In my 30 plus years of involvement with bird dogs I have been honored to judge both AKC and American Field field trial events and hunt tests. I have judged well over 120 stakes for at least five different pointing breeds at the local, regional, and national level. This broad involvement has allowed me to observe and learn about many outstanding bird dog breeds. Most 100 % of the participants I now consider friends.

While my main interest and ambition has been in the field I am impressed at the overall versatility of our breed. The GSP was initially bred to be a versatile hunting dog, and that it is.

If selected, my goal is to bring to the GSPCA Board my knowledge, experience, background, and a balanced perspective.
I vow to provide, to the best of my ability, good judgement, impartiality and sound decision making on all disciplines concerning the GSPCA, the breed, and its membership.

Our GSPCA constitution and by-laws are our guidelines to ensure that this exceptional breed of bird dog continues to be the best that it can be.

As the South Central Regional Director I will be available to provide assistance and guidance for all committees, work to make certain that our events and projects are responsibly managed, and follow our constitution and by-laws.

I am thankful for this opportunity to serve the GSPCA, its clubs and membership. I would appreciate your support.

Thank you for your commitment to our breed, and your consideration in voting for me.

David Vogelsang
