New Contest for 2020 GRCA National! Win a Gift Card!

Hey there all of you creative geniuses. As you know, the Mid-Florida Golden Retriever Club has been awarded the 2020 GRCA National Specialty. If you have attended a National you know that there is always a theme. If you haven’t attended a National, see the images of previous Specialty themes on catalogs to get those creative ideas going.
