There are lots of picnic tables under a covered pavilion.   It is right next to the Driving Range, so bring your clubs!    

Hope to see you all there!

From the AKC Chairman
In the June 2012 Chairman's Report, Alan Kalter refers to a petition in response to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) new proposed regulations which would create harsh and unintended consequences for responsible small and hobby breeders in this country.

Join With the AKC to Protect Responsible Small Breeders by signing the petition before July 16 when the public comment period to the Animal Care Division of the USDA’s Animal Plant and Health Inspection Service ends.
