Fall Trailing Trial and Supported Event - September 28-29, 2019
Typically many of us gather in Salisbury, MD in November where we have fun with our dogs as well as hold our annual CBC board and general meetings.
Because of a conflict with the 2019 ABC Nationals being held in November, and ABC rules that say we can not offer a supported or regional event 30 before or after the National Specialty, the CBC moved our annual event to the NY Finger Lakes Region on September 28-29th. Our Chair, Rick Shriver has managed to offer our members a Trailing Trial on Saturday, September 28th and our usual Sweeps and Supported event on Sunday, September 29th.
RV campsites are handled by Sampson State Park - Info would be part of the AKC Show Premium. Please watch for it when it becomes available.
Unfortunately hotels in this area are extremely expensive. Rick did a good job negotiating the Clarion fee of $159+tax / night plus $20 pet fee.
Since this year there will be something for everyone we hope all of you will plan to attend.
