2023 AMCA National Specialty Logo

The 2023 AMCA Regional and National Specialties are scheduled for October 21 through October 28, 2023 in Albany, Oregon! Show Chair John Dewing and Assistant Chair Sharon Weston are busy putting together this event, planned to be held at the Linn County Expo Center. We’ll include details and the schedule in the next newsletter as they are released.

AMAL participates in several annual events: pre-sales of our AMAL wines, week long fundraising at the AMAL table, a demonstration for the Online Pedigree Database, honoring our AMAL Affiliate Rescue Showcase participants, and presenting some terrific auction items for the AMCA Auction. Thanks to all who make these successful AMAL events!

We will need donations for AMAL’s annual fundraising at this event! Best selling items in the past have included limited edition prints, malamute-related items, Alaskan crafts, dog sleds, Hawaiian shirts with malamutes, soapstone handcrafts, grooming boxes, clothing items, and gift baskets. Start identifying treasures you may be willing to part with for this year’s show! Donations can be brought to the AMAL table at the show ring area or delivered in September – we’ll publish the mailing address in the August 2023 newsletter and on the website.

Onward to Oregon!

AMAL Rescue Showcase Chairperson
