All- Plans are still a go for the 2020 STC to be held in Des Moines on July 6-11. We invite each of you to attend this event but you must realize this is a different world we live in today that is was 6 months ago. We are still extremely hopeful that this is an event that happens but also an event that will take everyones full cooperation to make it happen. Several of the luxuries we have known to exist in Springfield the past few years will not seem so consistent in 2020 but all of you seem to realize that we all must give away some freedoms to allow our kids and adult breeders the opportunity to showcase their hard efforts. We will go into some of these decisions shortly when the schedules and rules are posted and what we expect and actually demand out of you for allowing this event to happen. We trust that it will still be a wonderful experience and we can put this one in the books as memorable. A couple reminders as of today.
