The Board of Directors of the Schipperke Club of America had an emergency teleconference call on Monday March 16, 2020. We included the 2020 Show Chair, Sara Name and Southern Michigan Schipperke Club President, Amy Halterman.
With extreme regret due to the current uncertainties with the COVID-19 virus, the Board voted to cancel the 2020 National to be held at Roberts Centre April 19-24, 2020.
Please have patience as we determine how to make refunds and other warranted reimbursements.
