Helena Montana Kennel Club is sponsoring a Christmas Fun Run weekend on December 8 and 9, at the Fairgrounds in Helena in the Bill Hamilton 4H building from 10 am to 5 pm.

The intent is to give obedience and rally fans an event to bridge the long gap between our September trials and the Bozeman trials in March, and to see if there is enough interest to pursue putting on a stand-alone official AKC obedience/rally weekend in Helena. We are also encouraging newbies to either sport, beginning trainers who are participating in our training classes, and anyone else who would like to experience the thrill of being in an obedience or rally ring, for fun or for competition.

We are offering a variety of obedience classes on Saturday including the optional and non-regular classes, and the same for Rally on Sunday, including some of the newer Rally classes that we will see being offered next year.

Come join the fun! Donate a dog-related ornament to be raffled. Crate decorating and/or Costume Contest. HMKC is having their Holiday Party at our training building just across the parking lot on Saturday night, we always have plenty of food and you are invited to join us that evening.
