The awards committee, consisting of Betty Gardner, Jean Wilkins and Jo Kendig, have determined that none of us feel comfortable in conducting our awards party as we have in the past because of the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic. After speaking with our president, Russ Bobb, the awards party for 2020, usually held in January 2021, will be canceled. It was decided that we will combine all 2020 titles with the 2021 titles earned next year, to be presented at the Awards Party in January 2022.
However, please submit this year’s Award Forms (see links below) by January 9, 2021 so that we may recognize your 2020 awards in the January issue of the Dumbbell!
Are you an Oriole member and have a recent award you would like to celebrate with one of those nice photos on the Oriole Awards Wall? Instructions for submitting your photo and information are here.
Recognition is given by Oriole for all titles earned in any of the activities for which the club offers training classes or licensed trials. In addition, the club recognizes dogs and handlers who have achieved titles in other activities through our Performance Dog Awards program.
Congratulations to all our Award Recipients for 2019
The following information and deadlines apply to all future awards celebrations so that members can see what titles are recognized and what steps they will need to follow to receive awards recognition.
Club members use the Annual Award Application to register with our Awards Coordinator for medallion awards and/or the Application for Performance Dog Award to register for the Special Awards. There is also a separate K9Nosework Awards Application (new this year!) and a Agility Awards Application (with obstacle replicas rather than medallion plates).
All title information must be received by December 20th of the current year in order to have time to order and prepare the awards for presentation at Oriole’s annual General Membership meeting and Awards Party in January. Award requirements are laid out in the Annual Awards Requirements document.
