SBHA's Inaugural Business Meeting

The ole cliché "We've Come A Long Way Baby" is nothing short of the truth when describing the inception of the Southern Bird Hunters Association by a small group of field trial enthusiast looking for a change for the better. Each of these individuals on the group text were discussing the need and desire for change in field trials; to bring back family enjoyment and involvement, while distancing ourselves from "must win" attitudes that cast a gloom at many trials. A crave for a new mission and culture to improve on this wonderful sport we cherish was inspired by the conversation between the group. What seemed to be a joking suggestion to create a new field trial organization with fresh ideas, soon became a more serious statement with a responding reply of "I'm not kidding, we can do this". From that moment forward, we were focused, determined and began formulating the necessary conversations to become the Southern Bird Hunters Association. This was February 10, 2020. The very next day at 3:36 PM EST the Southern Bird Hunters Association Inc. was submitted for approval.
