Dear WDA Members:
The WDA has cancelled both the 2015 WDA National IPO & FH Championship and the 2015 WDA National Universal Sieger Championship. All WDA competitors who wish to compete for consideration onto the Teams representing the United States at either the WUSV World Championship or the WUSV Universal Sieger Championship will be entered by the WDA into the National events hosted by the German Shepherd Dog Club of America (“GSDCA”) on May 1 to 3, 2015, at Purina Farms.
The decision to cancel theWDANational events and to enterthe WDA Competitors into the GSDCA events was made to protect the rights of the competitors to enter into the WUSV Joint Qualification Trial and the WUSV Universal Sieger Championship. The best interests of the membership and the German Shepherd Dog are always at the top of all WDA concerns. This decision will minimize the stress placed upon our competitors so that they may concentrate on the performances and the presentation of their dogs.
The WDA Board has met with all the competitors who were entered into the WDA National events. After the meeting, the following WDA Competitors have expressed an interest in representing the WDA at the GSDCA National event. Arrangements have been made with the GSDCA for the acceptance of their entries.
WDA continues to provide services to our members in support of the German Shepherd Dog and the WUSV/SV programs. We will continue to host all other events, including the upcoming 2015 WUSV North American Sieger Show on October 2 to 4, 2015, at Fairfax County, Virginia. WDA thanks all of the above-listed competitors for their continued support of the WDA. We confirm our continued pledge of support for each of them. WE ARE PROUD OF OUR WDA COMPETITORS AND WE WISH EACH OF THEM THE VERY BEST OF LUCK!
