Olympic Kennel Club would like to thank Governor Inslee for hearing the cries of our supporters and issuing a clarification on what we and the City of Enumclaw believed all along to be correct. We at Olympic Kennel Club are extremely happy to announce that we have partnered with Walla Walla Kennel Club and with the help Richland Kennel Club releasing their long standing weekend to us for this year. Olympic Kennel Club shows 9/23, 9/26, 9/27; Walla Walla Kennel Club 9/24, 9/25.
We are profoundly excited to be part of Walla Walla Kennel Clubs 80th anniversary ( one of the oldest clubs in Washington ) so please come help us celebrate!
For all that are concerned out there please read the following from the King Co Covid-19 task force.
“I am glad that you are aware of the guidance issued earlier this week that covers Agriculture Events, and which provides specific guidance for domestic animal shows, such as dog shows: https://www.governor.wa.gov/sites/default/files/COVID19%20Phase2%20Agricultural%20Events%20Guidance.pdf?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
When we spoke, you requested approval of your plans to comply with this new guidance. As I explained on the call, King County has no process for making such approvals, nor is there an approval required. If an activity has guidance issued by the state in one of the reopening phases, that activity is permitted as long as the organizer or business complies with all the requirements in the guidance, and no specific permission is needed.
If you get inquiries about this from your customers or others in the community, feel free to inform them of this. Any concerns expressed by your potential customers would be best addressed by sharing how your plan is compliant with the guidance.
Thank you for the extra steps you are taking to protect community health. “
We have AKC approval! We are imposing a limit of 2500 entries, so by AKC rules, we will need to post the premium list for 72 hours before entries open. Keep watching the BaRay site for posting announcement.
