The 2019 Boner Award!


The prestigious BONER AWARD is seeking nominees for 2019. Surely you've seen a fellow member commit a blooper at one of our trials or at practice on Thursday nights. 

Have you personally done or seen someone do something in 2019 that was humorous or silly enough for you to say “Gee, I wish I could send that in to AFV and win $10,000”? Sorry, we cannot offer you $10,000, but we can offer you the chance to relive the experience and share it with your fellow club members and dog lovers. And possibly take home the beloved trophy. The Boner Award is an award given out at the FVDTC Annual Dinner. It is done all in good fun and camaraderie.


Previous winners:

  • Watching live birds purchased to use for training hunting dogs escape out of the truck. Imagine these club members panic when the Ranger informed them that if the birds entered the forest preserve they were protected from hunting. Can’t you just picture the grown men chasing the wayward winged creatures before they entered the forest preserve property?
  • How about the club members (yes, it has happened more than once!) who accidentally left their dogs at training. Whoops! That’s a phone call that we would never forget – “please come back and pick up your very confused dog”!


Now is the time to nominate someone you've seen do something goofy!  (Deadline: March 15)
