The Mid-Florida Golden Retriever Club will hold an Agility Fun Day and general meeting on Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Best Paw Forward training center in Osteen, Fla.
The event will give members and their Goldens the opportunity to try the sport of Agility in a fun, no-pressure atmosphere. P.J. Lacette, one of the founders of the MFGRC and a lifetime member, will host the event and provide training.
Agility training will be from 9-11 a.m. followed by lunch and a club meeting. (Members should bring their own lunch).
So that organizers can properly prepare for the day, it is asked that members planning to attend please RSVP to MFGRC club secretary Andy Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org with how many people and how many dogs.
