The August 2017 President's Message from Ken Tatsch of USDAA.
The 2017 regional championship season is coming to a close Labor Day weekend with the Western Regional in Prunedale, California. That means the 2017 Cynosport® World Games held in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, October 25-29, is right around the corner. Entries for Cynosport close on Friday, September 8th. Please get your entries in now! Click here for the test schedule.
Helen McNenly, Cynosport Trial Secretary, is keeping up with entries as quickly as she can. You can check out her website - http://www.dognutmom.com/ - to see where your entry's status. The schedule is being fine-tuned and we will be able to provide more details about the event once all entries are processed.
This will be the third time that Cynosport will be held at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro. We have once again taken steps to enhance existing lighting fixtures in the annex adjacent to the main arena. We are also making sure that competitors rotate through multiple competition rings.
Information for this year's event can be found on the Cynosport web site at http://www.cynosport.com. Please be sure to sign up for event update notifications if you haven't already done so or if your email address has changed.
We will once again offer special schooling rings at Cynosport as a fundraiser in support of Team USA's for the 2018 IFCS World Agility Championships in Italy next April. Team fundraising efforts are coordinated through the United States Association of Cynological Sports, a 501(c)3 charity, which supports participation in international amateur sports with dogs.
If you don't have time to participate in the schooling rings, your tax-deductible donation will nonetheless be greatly appreciated. You can contribute at the show, or simply visit the USACS web site at www.donate2dogsports.org to make your donation online.
The 2018 Tournament Season begins on September 5, 2017, with Cynosport returning to West World of Scottsdale in Arizona, October 31-November 4, 2018. The 2018 Tournament Rules have been posted:
We hope to see everyone in Murfreesboro this October!
