2022 Events

As COVID continues to be an issue, MKC is hosting virtual meetings using Zoom. For information on the Zoom meetings, contact kthompsonhurst@yahoo.com. Meetings are held at 7:30 the first Monday of the month October-June and the last Monday in August. Note we are hoping the weather will permit us to have in-person meetings at the Club’s agility yards: May/June, August (last Monday in August) and October. Should conditions improve and we go back to in-person meetings at Waggin Tails Junction in Manassas, a notice will be posted here.

Agility training: April/May schedule will open for registration in March. Look for an update to the brochure in late February for information on classes offered. Registrar for 2022 is Becky Grant; contact her at becky1grant@verizon.net with any questions.
