A reminder of Rally Show ‘N Go July 12, 2020, registration form located HERE. Absolutely no DROP-INS, must preregister so that we can control the number of people in the building at any given time.
I would like to do Obedience Show ‘N Go on July 11, 2020, if anyone will volunteer to run it and do registrations. The same rules would apply as for rally. If you think you might be interested in coming let me know so I can determine if it would be worth doing. I will not be in town this weekend. If no one volunteers then it won’t happen. Club members, you want it, but I need someone to step up. May require you also to act as a judge and calling the patterns. Both of these Show ‘N Goes would be great to get ready for the upcoming trials.
July 14, 2020 – Club general meeting at the Training Center in Flippin at 7 pm. Masks will be optional and please maintain 6 ft social distancing.
FYI – from here on out all of our club meetings will have to be held in Flippin. My deepest apologies but right now the college is doing everything to keep the college safe and doubt very much they are going to allow outside entities to have meetings there for a while. That, of course, will be subject to change, but for the rest of 2020 that is the way it will have to be.
SMDTC is having their obedience trial July 30- Aug 2 and is 5 trials three days at the indoor soccer arena in Springfield. This is a nice AC facility and Kim Spradling is the trial chair.
August 11, 2020 – Club general meeting – training center Flippin at 7 pm
