Dear PVGRC members:
2020 has been an unprecedented year thus far, and shows little signs of returning to normal in the near future. The Board has been struggling with what to do about our upcoming events and has come to a number of conclusions.
The Field Committee, with the Board’s full support, has decided to cancel all Field activities for the rest of 2020 — hunt tests, WC/WCX, and training days. The informal training groups will continue to meet.
We will be holding the FAST CAT competition on November 14-15. Watch for further details about that event, plus some details on COVID protections which will be in force. We will also be holding the Fall Tracking Test on November 8.
The Spring Specialty and Obedience/Rally Trial is so far on the books. We will wait to hear from MD Sporting Dog about any possible limitations, but are moving ahead with the planning. And the Field committee will be working on Spring events and planning as time progresses.
We are sorry to have to cancel events that we have all been looking forward to and training for. Let’s all be creative about how we can support one another safely and keep safe and healthy.
