You'll notice that the majority of clinics are starting a bit sooner than most years before, but they are still running well into the season concluding with the "last chance" clinic in Elk Point on Novemeber 18. We will update the clinic listings as more dates and locations are confirmed by their local RIC's. If you don't see your town on the list, get on your RIC to confirm dates with the clinic coordinator, as requests have been sent to everyone weeks ago.
