With all the restrictions in place and the climbing Covid rates, The National Committee feels that we could not make it work in Michigan. There would be no place to hold the Top 20. There would be very limited grooming space. There would have been even more limited RV parking. Maybe in the future we can revisit this venue. So please cancel any reservations you have made.

Although I do not have a signed contract yet, we are planning to go to Purina Farms from May 31 to June 5, 2021. This will be an outdoor event. We are inquiring about a venue for the Top 20 at Purina. We are planning to have agility and obedience as well. We are planning to have Scent Work. We are working on getting a hotel contract in place. As soon as I have these contracts in my hands, I will let you know.

I appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding. Not only is the club dealing with unusual situations, but so are the venues themselves. I know I sound like a broken record, but everything seems to change by the day. I hope a vaccine will be out by spring and the virus settles down. The last thing I want to do is cancel 2021. Purina seems to have a very good plan in place, and I think that we can make this work and look forward to seeing all of you!!!

Check back frequently. As details are worked out, they will be posted to this website.

Best regards,

2021 National Specialty Committee
