Spring Update – Covid 19 Response

To all Club and Individual Members,

Most of all, we all want to extend both sympathies and our very best wishes to all effected by this pandemic, it has gotten big and will most certainly get bigger in the short term. Each and every person’s health and well being is our priority.

These are difficult and unusual times for all of us. With a geographically spread out membership the situation regarding Covid 19 is very fluid and very different for some of us. We trust that each area will manage their situations as they see best. In all cases we do recommend following any required local guidelines for social gatherings. We understand that many venues have been closed at this time and that many trials and club gatherings have been cancelled or postponed.

Regarding cancelled or postponed trials, please know that after the conclusion of the 2019-2020 trial season any postponed trial involving AFTCA Invitational event points will not carry over if rescheduled and run in the 2020-2021 or a future field trial season. Also, after the conclusion of the 2019-2020 trial season any postponed AFTCA National or Regional championships are considered cancelled

The 2020-2021 season beginning this fall, which we are all looking forward to, will include our normal slate of AFTCA Invitational points trials including all AFTCA National and Regional Championship trials.

This is NOT intended to incentivize holding events during the remaining 2019-2020 season but rather clarifying the situation for all membership to understand our position moving forward.

We wish all the very best and will stay in touch with updates if necessary through our website, email and facebook page and group.
