The entry form is now available for the Mid-Florida Golden Retriever Club’s annual Specialty, which will be held on Friday, December 14, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.
The MFGRC Specialty is part of a week of activities surrounding the Royal Canin AKC National Championship event.
The entry can be made through the Onofrio website:
All members of the Mid-Florida Golden Retriever Club who earn new titles for their Goldens while they are members during calendar year 2018 are eligible to receive a new title rosette from the club.
If your dog has won a new title in 2018, please email the full name of the dog and what the title earned was to MFGRC board member Robin Lemieux. Robin will order the rosettes later this year and make them available for pickup early next year. If you will not be able to attend an event to pick up your rosette, you will need to send a check for $10 for postage and handling, made out to MFGRC, so that it can be mailed to you.
Robin’s email address is email@example.com. The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2018.
To Mid Florida Golden Retriever Club Members
We’re turning our general membership meeting at the Ocala show on Saturday, November 19, into a pot luck lunch and social, so we hope to have the largest turnout of club members we’ve had this year.
We’d especially love to see some of the members from the northern areas of our “territory” at this meeting since it’s our closest meeting to you this year.
Our primary point of discussion at the meeting will be led by John Blair (who has been nominated to be club president in 2017) and it’s to get input from members on the possibility of our club making a bid to host the Golden Retriever Club of America National Specialty in 2020.
As to the pot luck lunch, please bring whatever you’d like, whether it’s sandwich meats and bread, chips, potato salad, sodas and water – all contributions are welcomed. There’s plenty of room on the property so we’ll find a nice shady spot to set up tables for our lunch. Everyone should bring their own chairs and we could use a couple of tables too (please email andyhall58 at hotmail dot com if you can bring a table)..
Our lunch and meeting will be held AFTER Goldens show – the judging program has Goldens scheduled for 12:45 p.m. in Ring 1, so it’ll probably be around 2:15 p.m. or so.
The Ocala Dog Show Grounds location is easy to find – for those who use GPS devices, the address is 10205 NW Gainesville Rd, Ocala, FL 34482.
From I-75 take exit 358 EAST which is State Road. 326. Go 1 mile to the traffic light and turn LEFT onto 25A then NORTH for approximately 2.3 miles. The show grounds will be on the RIGHT, with THE GREATER OCALA DOG CLUB sign.
