All companion events at the 2022 GRCA National Specialty will take place in the Stock Arena (named Stock after a former Monroe County Fairgrounds board member named Stock).  Crating space at the Stock Arena will have some limitations based on the size of the arena and the size of rings used during the events.  

The Agility events (both CVGRC and GRCA Agility trials) utilize most of the free space in the arena and there will be limited space available.  The agility event team will regulate the use of any available space.  For additional crating space, a 40’ x 100’ tent will be available just to the west of the arena, along with a grassy area for parking and individual crating.

For Obedience and Rally, there may be more space inside the arena but the 40’ x 100’ tent will still be available for crating.

It will be best to check with the specific event chair (listed on each event page or the committee volunteer page) to see how inside crating will be handled.

  • No generators will be allowed on the grounds except in the outer (far eastern) parking lot. They will need to be away from other cars and separated from other stuff.
  • No alcoholic beverages are allowed on the grounds of the Hunt Test and WC/WCX.  No exceptions.
  • In order to recognize trophy and raffle donations in the catalog, we ask that you handle these decisions before July 6th. The catalog has to be completed shortly after that and we need time to plan all the raffle and other aspects of the National.
  • The premium list will be released Wednesday, June 22, so watch for it and let us know if you have not received a copy.
  • All the Parades at the National (Titleholders, Rescue, Heroes) need to have the entries submitted by July 6th. Be aware that this date is less than three weeks from now.
  • Also want to thank everyone for all the support that has been provided for our efforts to run this National. It is very much appreciated!

Are you excited to honor your beloved Goldens in a parade? The Parade entry forms have all been posted and they close early (July 6), so do not wait… enter now!

Please note: closing dates listed in the premium are incorrect – they have been changed to July 6th to include entries in the catalog.

We look forward to seeing you!
