North Star Puppy & Handler Weekend Rescheduled to March 8-10, 2019

In consideration of unexpected conflicts, the North Star Kennel Club today announced that the inaugural North Star Puppy & North Star Handler contests will be rescheduled to March 8-10, 2019.

Weekend planning committee Chair Randy Ingram-Lile said, “We have decided to position ourselves in the middle of March between the traditional dates for Twin Cities Leather Weekend and Minnesota Leather Pride Weekend.  We feel the addition of North Star Puppy & Handler Weekend will help promote the bookend contests as well as Minneapolis and our region.”

We are excited to partner with the eagleBOLTbar to host a weekend centered on the Puppy and Handler community.  The North Star Puppy and North Star Handler contests will showcase the breadth of talent that exists within our Puppy and Handler community and will be positioned to be the premier Puppy and Handler contests within the North Star Kennel Club’s home region of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Manitoba, and Ontario.
