FTCI Dog of The Year Award Banquet Cancelled

I regret to inform everyone the 2020 DOTY Award Banquet scheduled for Saturday, July 11, 2020, has been cancelled.  The FTCI Board of Directors met recently via conference call and reluctantly made this decision in light of the coronavirus pandemic impacting the country.  The BOD did not come to this decision lightly, but sincerely believes this decision is in the best interests of our club members and the public. 


Unfortunately, the shortened Spring field trial season affected the number of dogs qualifying as DOTY winner and runner up in all sporting dog breeds.  However, there are still a number of dogs that did earn a winner and runner up award and the Board determined to provide awards to those owners and publish a limited catalog edition for member clubs and owners with winning and runner up dogs. 


We look forward to a DOTY Award Banquet in July of 2021 and hope to see many of you there.  I look forward to the Fall field trial season and hope to see many of you out there enjoying this sport.
