New Red Setter Display at Bird Dog Museum!
The National Red Setter Field Trial Club is hard at work preparing our new display area at the National Bird Dog Museum! The club recently purchased custom made cabinets made possible through the generosity of several donors to our Foundation, which funded the cabinet project. If you haven't been to the museum, it's worth the trip!
Museum Director David Smith, Red Setter President Don Beauchamp, Futurity Chair Al Fazenbaker, and nephew Zach Fazenbaker help unload the new cabinets.

The cabinets are lighted and secure.

Red setter display area is in a "prime" location... right at the entrance!
Cabinets are custom made by "This Old Wood" cabinetry shop in Albion, PA. They are made of cherry hardwood.
Bob Schweiger's famous saddle also resides in a place of honor in the red setter wing. This is the saddle Bob rode during his trip from Chicago to Oklahoma in 1976 in support of the National Bird Dog Museum. Bob also strongly supported the National Red Setter Field Trial Club during his travels.
Special thanks to everyone who donated to the cause! In our next phase, we hope to raise sufficient funds to purchase some multimedia equipment for the wall above the cabinets.
