About the USCSDA

In 1981, Robert Lee, Jack Myrick and Gerald Shaw founded a walking shooting dog association under the name of the United States Complete Shooting Dog Association. Gerald Shaw, an attorney from Sanford, N.C. did all of the legal work, Jack Myrick had the bird dog knowledge and a huge number of contacts, and Robert Lee had the administrative ability and the competitive edge. Bernie Matthys of the American Field was contacted to get recognition of the trials. A championship was requested but Mr. Matthys required the running of a classic for two years before granting a championship. In March of 1983 the first championship was held. The early stated goal of the founding fathers was to improve the quality of the pointing breeds through the sport of field trialing that would be conducted in such a way that the entire family could be present and enjoy the activity.
