Joanne Wilbanks ◊ 111 E 114th Ter, Kansas City, MO 64114 ◊ (816) 304-4515 ◊ Established 1994

Will has been running Field Trials for over 16 years and his pride and joy has been having the opportunity to train, trial, be on the line when receiving both field titles, qualify for 4 nationals, being a finalist at the 1999 Amateur National in McCall, Idaho and receiving the double-header wins with FC-AFC Trumarc's Too Hot To Handle "Lucy".  Will is a Field Trial judge and has used several different types of judges sheets over the past several years and has always looked for the perfect waterproof and tear resistant judges sheets.


Joanne has been running Hunt Tests for 15 years and just started running Field Trials in 2005.  Her very first All-Age stake was an Owner-Handler Amateur in May 2005 and she received "Third Place" with Candlewoods Ruler Of the Sky QAA "Zeus".  She has titled several Hunt Test dogs and has just retired Too Hot To Be A Shady Lady MH "Dolly".  She has a young dog River Hills Shell B "Shelby" that just started running the Qualifying. Unfortunately Shelby passed due to cancer in June 2013. She has been the Field Trial Secretary for about 18 years and also was the Hunt Test Secretary for about 5 years for the Kansas City Retriever Club.  Joanne has judged several Hunt Tests and may someday get the chance to judge a Field Trial.
