The NAFA Board of Directors held a teleconference on Sunday, June 7, 2020 to discuss the feasibility of hosting our premier event, the CanAm Classic on October 9-11, 2020 in Indianapolis, IN.
After much consideration and discussion on how to safely and responsibly hold the event in the best interest of all participants in light of current COVID-19 restrictions, the Board voted unanimously to cancel CanAm 2020.
The invaluable feedback provided by club owners and the NAFA community via the poll indicated that the majority of respondents would not attend CanAm 2020. Aside from the current limitations on public gatherings, the Board discussed the various issues raised by participants ranging from crossing State and International borders, as well as the current physical condition of dogs who have seen limited racing this year.
The safety of our community and of our dogs will always be at the forefront of our decisions. We will miss connecting with friends old and new, and the excitement that CanAm brings every year. May you stay safe and healthy as we look forward to CanAm 2021.
NAFA Chairman of the Board
