The WEC is having a “soft” opening to host the 2020 GRCA National and it will be the first event to be held at the facility.
Exhibitors will be responsible for getting their awards home. None will be shipped or mailed by the host club.
While nothing is confirmed yet, we anticipate that AKC TV will stream some of the competition as it has done for previous GRCA Nationals.
The field events will be outdoors; everything else will be indoors in air conditioning.
We in Florida train year-round and we hold at least a dozen field trials and/or hunt tests throughout the area during the year, and we have never had a negative incident with a gator or snake. We are experienced in making our land and water tests safe, and it will be no different for the National.
