IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE LEONBERGER CLUB OF AMERICA
Posted December 15, 2020
Season’s greetings from the members of the LCA Board of Directors! As visions of sugar plums and doggy treats dance in your head, we wish you a wonderful holiday season.
Because the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic is still raging, large gatherings such as our 2021 National Specialty have continued to be affected. While the comradery and the time with our dogs is very important, we recognize that our planned event would be so severely restricted, it was highly unlikely to be successful either aesthetically or financially. But, most importantly, it would be next to impossible to guarantee the safety of our people.
For these reasons, and after successful negotiations with the 2021 and 2022 venues, the Board has made the difficult but sound decision to reschedule the 2021 National Specialty to take place the week of March 14th-20th, 2022. Our hosts at Founders Inn in Virginia Beach, VA were happy to accommodate us. The rate for the Standard Queen room will remain at $119 plus applicable taxes per night, but the other rooms, ie Standard King, Standard Double Queen etc will be increased from $119 to $125 plus applicable taxes per night.
We were also fortunate that the team in Decatur, IL were willing and able to move our 2022 event to 2023. More details on 2023 will follow as we finalize those plans.
Special thanks to the SEC and especially to Matt Messley for putting in the time and energy to negotiate this necessary outcome with the two host facilities.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or any member of the Board.
