Cancellation of Desert Empire Terrier Club specialties and Palm Springs Kennel Club All Breed shows for January 2021

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.

Cancellation of Agility trials, Specialty, and both April and May meetings

Updates for scheduled events for our club:
Agility trials scheduled for April 25/26 have been cancelled.
Mission Circuit, including out designated specialty on Saturday, May 23 have been cancelled.
Due to the risks associated with the COVID-19 virus, we will not be holding either the April meeting or the May Annual meeting.
We will move the annual meeting to a date later this year, once the CDC and local authorities determine it is safe to gather in numbers. Annual awards forms will be mailed out once we determine when we can hold the meeting.
Regarding nominations that could be received from the floor at the April meeting, should someone want to run for office, a letter stating who is nominating and an acceptance by the person nominated, may be mailed to Star Ott, either emailed or postmarked dated no later than April 26, 2020.
If no nominations are received, the nominating committee slate will assume office on June 1, 2020, per the constitution and by laws.
Best wishes to each of you as we get through this difficult time.

April Agility Trials and Club Meeting

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.
