Mark your calendars for the 2018 Annual Meeting!
The Hoffman Estates Cabela’s will once again host our kickoff meeting on Sunday, March 11th beginning at 10:00 AM.
Full details are yet to be announced, but some of the highlights will include the introduction of our 2018 events, the 2017 awards presentation. We should also have a supply of newly designed GSPCI merchandise available.
This meeting will be a great time to ask questions of our board and share your suggestions for guest speakers, workshop topics or events. The success of our club continues to be driven by our members who volunteer for committees and events. We encourage you to join the fun and become more involved with your club.
Foundations of Field Training Seminar and Intro to Field Training (Des Plaines SFWA – East Grounds) - 9:00 a.m., Saturday, March 3, 2018
** Correction: As a point of clarification – The previous announcement incorrectly stated that the GSPCI board elections will be held on Wednesday, September 6th. While a portion of the election process will be conducted at that meeting, the actual election will be held at the November 1st meeting, in accordance with outstanding by-laws.
GSPCI and VCOI would like to invite you to the August 5th Mock Hunt Test Swap Meet where you can sell or trade your extra/spare/slightly used dog training equipment.
The meet will be held in conjunction with the August 5th Mock Hunt Test on the East Grounds of the Des Plaines SFWA. Collars, retrieving dummy, bumpers, leads, check cords, decoys, backing silhouettes, stakeouts, maybe even a slightly used training vest or chaps that didn't work out for you; all are welcome.
Our Club’s Specialty Show is Sunday, July 16 . We are combining with Fort Dearborn and the GSPCA Regionals to make this a three-day event!
