General Club Meetings

These usually take place once each month (June, July and August excepted) selected in order to avoid conflicts with major holidays and/or major local shows. 

In an effort to make meetings more interesting and non-intrusive regarding the dinner hour, the board decided to have meetings take place a people's home with a "pot luck" dinner activity.  Directions will be sent out each month with the host's address.  Also it will be possible to access maps to the current host, on this website. 

Our Next regular meeting:  Wednesday, Nov. 18th, 7:30 PM

 LOCATION:  The Ebertins

PROGRAM:   Nominations for board positions.  Preparation for the December shows.

Tracking Activities (including trailing and area search). 

For those of you who will be joining us, you will need a Recreational Use Permit issued by the Arizona State Land Department.  Their web site is  This permit is good for one year and allows you to go on State Land.  Unless things have changed you will have to print the application and send it in along with a check to the Arizona State Land Department.  In the past, they have been very prompt issuing the permit.

We will be sending out an email where and when we will meet as it gets closer to the 8th.  If you are new, be sure to bring your dogs favorite toy/food.  In addition. bring plenty of water for both you and your dog.  Each dog is worked individually so your dog will have to either be kept in a crate or in your car, when not being worked.  We do not allow any dogs to be tied in or out of your vehicle.

If you have any questions, or would like your name removed from this group, please let us know.

For details contact:  Linda and Morley.
