It is with great sadness that I share the cancellation of the annual January in Indio/start of the year shows. We received word today that Desert Empire Terrier (including our specialty) and Palm Springs Kennel Club have decided to cancel the 2021 shows. With all the uncertainty in California, at this time, it seems to be the safe choice to make.
At this time, the agility trials are still planning to be held. I have been in contact with Lynda Tjark’s organization and they have a plan in place to follow the guidelines for minimizing risks to exhibitors and workers at the trials. Normally, I would ask for volunteers to work the trials, but with all the concerns for Covid-19, I would like to encourage each member to do what they feel is appropriate.
The April club meeting will be held on Sunday, April 26, following the conclusion of the trials. At that time, additional nominations may be received from the floor. The slate proposed by the nominating committee has been emailed to all club members on March 15, 2020.
