"The purpose the club to help owners train their dogs and extend the hunting experience with friendly people, friendly
competition and land to train on"

The purpose of our Club is to provide a place for members to train their pointing Dog(s) year round and extended the hunting experience through friendly, competitive field trials. We have approximately 150 acres of land 12 miles north of Strasburg, Co. We have a spacious club house  and for your convenience a porta potty is there year round.

We strive to promote the pointing dog breed not for profit or personal gain but to promote upland game hunting, dog training, field safety and to share and teach others.

This past week our club property was hit by either a micro burst

or tornado.  The clubhouse is a complete loss along with our bird barn picnic table and porta potty.  Metal shed was tipped on its side and with the help our club members we were able to turn back over. It has been amazing to see how far debris can travel and how wonderful our members have been to step in and help out.  This a great club to be part of.

Our field trials typically run February through May. These trials are for fun and friendly competition and can also be used as a training experience, especially for the new member. During the rest of the year we have a summer picnic  along with a Christmas party. We also have a booth at the International Sportsmens Exposition every year.

CGDA is a network of seasoned hunters willing to share their wisdom with you. Occassionaly we have bird sources available for our members training needs. We are strictly nonprofit.


Members plant birds, chair trials attend fundraisers and various other tasks for the club and each other. We occasionally have clinics on judging as well as dog training clinics with a professional dog trainer.
