2011 Pedigree Camp

Our annual get-together to discuss pedigrees and enjoy the delights of Prince Edward Island will be held June 17th - 19th. There is no fee this year and the agenda will not have the usual teaching sessions - just some free-wheeling sessions to discuss whatever you want, with an emphasis on the how-tos of pedigree research. Join us and learn from the experience of doing your homework with breeders from around North America. Paul Spears of Hanover Shoe Farm has already confirmed his attendance.

A schedule of events is below/ E-mail me for further information or a registration form. Please advise me as soon as possible if you plan to attend. Registration forms should be returned by June 1st.
