General club meeting -- Fun at the Park
Last general meeting until September
These usually take place once each month (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: Friday, Mar. 28, 2014 -- 7:00 PM --
LOCATION: Charlottte Funk's house. Directions to her house
PROGRAM: Chosing new club shirt design; discussion on a new location for our December shows; discuss ideas for activities at our next meeting in the park; follow up on how members and their GSDs faired at events in the past 2 months.
Everyone is invited so bring the whole family.
This is a great place to meet people and their dogs.
If you haven't done so see information regarding snake proofing your dog. This can save its life!
Tell us about your Obedience interests here.
Events take place on Tuesday nights. See pictures from a recent class.
