The Coastal Bend Retriever Club of Texas was formed in the spring of 1999 in Rockport, Texas. While the Coastal Bend is well known for its great duck hunting and white-winged dove hunting there was no organized retriever group. Thus, the club was formed to bring retriever enthusiasts together to share ideas and improve their dogs. Most of our events and meetings focus around the Corpus Christi/Rockport area.
The club is approved to hold AKC Licensed Field Trials and Hunt Tests. In addition the club holds "fun days" for members to exhibit their dogs in various forms and training clinics. Please see the events calendar for any upcoming events.
Below is a membership application. Membership is open to persons over 18 who are in good standing with AKC. Residence is unrestricted. Once the membership form is received by the Secretary it is then subject to approval by the Board of Directors and are subject to ratification by the members. Prospective members will be notified of approval.
