Dear ALAC Member,
The ALAC Board met on Thursday evening, May 28th to discuss our 2020 National Specialty in St. Louis. After lengthy discussions and deliberation, the Officers and Board of the American Lhasa Apso Club reluctantly made the difficult decision to cancel the American Lhasa Apso Club National specialty and related events, scheduled for October 20-23, 2020 in St. Louis.
The actual motion voted on was that “The American Lhasa Apso Club National Specialty and Related Events scheduled for October 20-23, 2020 in St. Louis, Missouri be cancelled due to our precautionary concern for the common good and public health of our members and in light of the continuing uncertainty arising from the Covid-19 pandemic. The vote was eleven (11) in favor of cancelling, two (2) opposed and one (1) abstention.
We considered many factors in making this decision, most importantly, the health and safety of our club members, exhibitors, judges, spectators, and contractors and the overall uncertainty of these times. We discussed the following matters along with other considerations.
*Please note that the National Show Committee is communicating with the 2020 National judges to ensure that they will be reassigned to judge our National as soon as schedules permit. We will keep the membership fully advised as to these changes.
We would sincerely appreciate your understanding. In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy and do not forget to cancel hotel reservations, car rentals and other reservations you may have made for this special event!
Wishing you all the best,
