Event Updates

We have updated the events page with those events that have not yet been cancelled for the 2020 season.  We hope to be able to move ahead with safe measures.  Please stay tuned for updated Premiums as they become available.

We are currently trying to plan an MGDA field trial for the end of August and volunteers will be needed in order to host a successful event for our club.  Please watch for your opportunity to volunteer or feel free to contact any executive member with what you can do.

Congratulations to all of the Handlers and Committee Members and Volunteers who were able to assist in successfully having our first MGDA event of the season, safely with smiles.  It was very nice to see everyone out with their dogs, helping to have an event in these new times.

What is your participation interest?

The membership form that is completed each year helps to indentify the areas of interest you have with our club.  Whether it is events, membership, sponsorship, work parties, fundraising activities, training groups etc.  Over the years, it has become more and more that we receive only your cheque or etransfer, but no form that indicates your interest.  The form also provides us with your mailing address and phone number and email address.  

If you have a particular area of interest, please contact one of your executive members to share or send an email to  We would love to hear from you.
