Since the cancellation of events that happened last year, the AKC had made the decision that we could hold our 2020 National at a later date. With much of this year being cancelled earlier this year we are going to hold the 2020 National on Thursday, October 7, 2021 in conjunction with the Hatboro Dog Club.

We will then have our 2021 National on Sunday in conjunction with the Montgomery County Kennel Club at Macungie Memorial Park, located at 50 N Poplar St, Macungie, PA 18062. This is a one‐time change in venue.

PLEASE NOTE: Updated Procedures

Our membership continues to navigate difficult COVID conditions and while we are saddened that many of our membership are still unable to attend our planned events, we welcome and sincerely thank those that have entered events and signed up for the dinner. In order to protect everyone as much as foreseeably possible, we have made a few adjustments.

Based on current Pennsylvania protocol, masks are required in all indoor locations, unless you are seated and eating. In the Kimberton Building, we have enlarged the usable grooming area. Masks should be worn indoors so that would include the ring area. At our dinner, tables have been generously spaced but again it is an indoor event so masks should be worn while socializing, traveling to the bar, auction tables and restrooms. Masks are optional if you are speaking at the podium. Masks will be worn during the board meeting.

We are working on the schedule of events and will be posting as soon as they are all confirmed. If you have any questions, please free to contact CathyBlacklock, cajims@msn.com.

Due to changing Covid circumstances, the organizers of the 2021 Montgomery Terrier Agility Cluster (MTAC) have decided that all exhibitors and guests must either:

  1. show proof of Covid vaccination, or
  2. wear a mask at all times (including while running their dog) while in the building.

Exhibitors who are vaccinated can optionally wear a mask, but it will not be required. This policy is designed to make everyone safer. If government officials decide on other requirements, naturally the MTAC will follow such requirements
