2019 GSPCA election

North Central Director: Tim Zick [email tim]

I am very honored to have been nominated as a candidate for the North Central Director.

My wife Erica and I started out by showing Missouri Foxtrotters with Charlie and Lynn Blackbourn.  Soon after meeting them, they introduced us to field trialing. We got our first German Shorthair Pointer from the Blackbourns which started our love of the German Shorthair Pointers. We began competing with our first GSP in 2003.

We strive to produce a great versatile dog for home and the field. We successfully compete in field trials all over the U.S. We have owned and trained multiple FC/AFC along with many placements at our National Championship. Our dogs have also traveled across the U.S. for multiple hunting trips.

Erica and I are members of the German Shorthair Pointer Club of America (GSPCA) and the Four Lakes German Shorthair Pointer Club. I currently serve as the president for the Four Lakes GSPC.  We work diligently to put on two horseback field trials a year along with one walking trial. I also have spent many years as a field trial judge, watching dogs all across the U.S. ranging from weekend trials to National events.

Personally, home is a fourteen acre farm located twenty miles south of Madison, WI. Erica and I have three beautiful daughters ages, four, eleven, and thirteen. I am lucky enough to have a family that enjoys our animals as much as I do. I have been self employed for the last fifteen years in my carpentry business which helps with my flexibility in my schedule to be husband, father, and spend time with our animals.

Again, I am honored to be nominated for the N.C. Director and if elected I will do my best for the people, their canine companions, and the GSPCA.
