The 2020 PVIWC Fun Day is a being held this year as a virtual event. Judge for this year's event is Mary Ellen Shriver.

I hope you all have been able to go through all your wolfhound photos. It is time to enter the VIRTUAL FUN DAY. Susan Montgomery has created a Google album to upload your entries. This is a wonderful way to make the best of our current situation. We are disappointed that we cannot attend the Fun Match in person. The Reba's are always excellent hosts each year. It is one of our best attended events of the year. It also provides a fund raising effort for the Club. This year is an opportunity for you to showcase your wolfhound in a way that others may have not seen before. I am excited to enter a number of classes.

Mary Ellen Shriver will be our judge. Susan Montgomery will 'Ring Steward' and organize the entries before sending to the Judge. Each class / entry is $5. ***The deadline to enter is Midnight Sunday September 20.*** The winners should be announced September 27. The entry fee may be paid on the website via PayPal (pviwc.org/donations.html)
