Welcome to the Treeing Walker Breeders & Fanciers Sectional Program. The TWBFA works with local coonhound clubs throughout the country to host United Kennel Club (UKC) licensed Treeing Walker Sectionals that provide our members with the chance to compete for the Nite Hunt Dog & Handler of the Year and Bench Show Dog & Handler of the Year. All members earning cast wins and bench show wins at Treeing Walker Sectionals also qualify for the Lee Crawford Invitational Nite Hunt and Bench Show held each year on Thursday of Treeing Walker Days. If your club is interested in hosting a TWBFA sectional, please complete the following request form. Our sectional director, Alan Kalal, will contact you soon to confirm your request. Thank you!

Sectional Request Form

Dear Club Representative,

My name is Alan Kalal and I am the Sectional Chairman for the Treeing Walker Breeders & Fanciers
Association (TWBFA). I am contacting UKC coonhunting club representatives throughout the country in an
attempt to grow the TWBFA’s sectional program. We are looking to schedule more sectionals, but also
improve the number of entries at each sanctioned event. The lower portion of this page is a sectional request
form that can be completed and returned to me via regular mail, email or text. I have included some
important facts about our sectional program for your reference below. If you have any questions about
hosting a TWBFA sectional, please feel free to contact me at your convenience.

  • Sectional requests should be made far enough in advance of the event to ensure that they are properly
    listed as TWBFA sectionals in the Coonhound Bloodlines.
  • Clubs holding sectionals are mailed sectional information and reporting forms, as well as King & Queen
    of Hunt and Show awards, in the weeks leading up to the event. All other awards are the
    responsibility of the club hosting the event.
  • Sectional fees due to the TWBFA are $5.00 per dog entered in both the hunt(s) and show(s).
  • Two night sectionals are allowed and welcomed, as are double headers and two night double headers.  (Only one High Scoring Male and High Scoring Female will be awarded each night, including nights with double headers.  In the case of a double header, select the High Scoring Male and Female from either round.)
  • Sectional bench shows can be held on both Fridays and Saturdays, with the Treeing
    Walker class winners of each day advancing to show for Overall King and Queen of Show at the end of
    Saturday’s bench show.
