2017 Show We combined with TVKC (Tonawanda Valley Kennel Club) to form a 3 day cluster called WNY Twin Valley Cluster, "Paws under the Dome". Tonawanda took Friday and GVKC had Saturday and Sunday. The venue was the newly remodeled Dome Arena in Henrietta with air conditioning for the main show area and the un-air conditioned Merritt Hall for general, free grooming. Once again our club took on the task of a change in venue and overall, pulled off a great dog show weekend. There were many special events including, Veteran competition, PeeWee junior handling, Meet the Breeds, 4-6 month puppy competition, Puppy competition, raffles, 50/50 raffles and 13 specialty breeds providing both designated specialties, supported entries and supported entries with sweeps.

2017 Show Once again, our club was faced with another venue move as the Ice Rink double booked the show weekend and we have to scramble to find another site. Fortunately, the Dome Arena in Henrietta had new ownership and they were willing to work with our club. Although the Dome itself was under major construction, we were able to squeeze into Merritt Hall. No air conditioning on a very hot weekend but with some large industrial fans, we were able to keep some air circulation going and complete the show weekend.
2015 Show After rain saturated the grounds at Rush, making them unusable, the club was able to secure an indoor site at Bill Gray's Ice Rink, MCC campus and not have to cancel the show.
