Well folks, probably not a big surprise but we are cancelling/postponing our April 2-4 Agility Trials. Current public health orders do not allow for events such as these, those dates are fast approaching, and we are doubtful that the province will open up for 50 person events just in time for Easter weekend. We really hope to run some smaller events this summer and have an excellent weekend of agility October. Thank you to everyone who has shown an interest in CKC agility and in supporting our club.

Currently, the May 8-9 Lure Coursing trial for sighthounds is still planned but we will have to keep an eye on the provincial guidelines. Now that some outdoor groups are allowed, we will also try to have some lure practice when possible. These will likely be members-only practices so be sure to join the club if you are interested!

Those of you who attended our October Agility Trials might've noticed our fancy new Galican teeter and a-frame! This means our old a-frame is looking for a new home. Club members get first right of refusal, but please let us know if you'd be interested in taking it (a donation to the club would be appreciated). It is HEAVY so best for someone with a semi-permanent location (e.g. a backyard set-up). Pick-up from the barn on Bulman road in Kelowna is required and sooner is better than later. ...

Our one and only 2020 agility trial is now a wrap! Thank you to everyone who worked to make it a safe, fun, and efficient event! We had an amazing crew of volunteers this weekend, but extra shout-out to our Trial Secretary, Sheila; Master Course Builder, Hildi; Task Master and People Wrangler (unofficial title ๐Ÿ˜‚), Sarah; plus our Judges, Sandi and Kirsten.

Courses were built in record speed and we managed to end on time or early all three days. Linda won Sandi's Judge's Choice Award and I (Aaryn) somehow won Kirsten's ๐Ÿ˜† We are already cooking up our April 2021 trial and maybe even some mini-trials and fun match(es) throughout the year. We couldn't have CKC Agility in the Okanagan without all of your help and commitment to showing up. THANK YOU!
