A lot of people wanted to know if we are open to joining and accepting new members to our club. Yes, we do accept new people to our pack, and since we had so many requests regarding this, we decided to offer a quick and simple procedure for entering our club.
The GWPC welcomes any GWP enthusiasts, owners and breeders to join the Club along with anyone interested in Hunt, Point, Retrieve breeds and Gundogs in general. Those wishing to learn more about the breed are also welcome.
To join the GWPC simply download the membership form from this website, fill it in with as much detail as possible (if you want to include a covering letter please feel free to do so) and send it back to the Membership Secretary. Once received, your application form will be put to the Committee at its next meeting where it will be formally approved. A new member’s pack will then be sent out with further information about the Club and a Standing Order form to fill in for the future. Applications should ideally be proposed and seconded by current members. If not the please just include a covering letter with your application to give Committee more details.
All GWPC members receive a newsletter 3 times a year, a free yearbook each time it is produced, reduced entry fees to shows, working tests and field trials plus the opportunity to stand on Committee and first refusal on Club seminars, training days and other events. The GWPC openly welcomes constructive criticism from its members, help with events and ideas to further develop the Club and the breed. As a GWPC member you also have the opportunity to have your say in shaping the future of the breed when the Club is asked for input by the Kennel Club.
We also encourage people and joiners to present their ideas, drafts, suggestions and concepts as our goal is to expand our club. We have the annual meetings where we discuss the most interesting ideas. So, make a draft and send it to us, so we could invite you for the very next meeting!
